TVLand Finally Breaks Out From The Tired, Worn Out Episodes

Oh yeah, for better or worse, Saw "Opie's Job" in color yesterday, and now there are four more scheduled. Who else gets an upset stomach from watching Deputy Warren? Pass the Pepto-Bismol.

One question that I have often wondered about and I would like to hear from some of the other posters here on this subject. Please do not think about me as being a bad person, a prude, or any kind of biased or discriminatory type person. I just wonder about this issue and would like to know what others think. So, here goes. 

Do you think that because we know that Andy was a faithful follower of the Lord in real life, that had he known that Jim Nabors was a homosexual, that he would have allowed him to still be on the show? 

Sometimes, I find it kind of ironic, but then I think, "Well, Andy may have had issues with it back in the early 60's, just like many other folks did, but as time and ideals changed, I think Andy would have come around and been OK with it." 

I kind of think, or maybe I would just like to think that sometimes we all have a little Clint Eastwood in us and are Libertarians and live our life under the creed of, "Que Sera, Sera."  

Homosexuals have always been in the entertainment field, in or out of the closet. I do not see this as an Andy Griffith issue.

I don't disagree with you, but I have known stars on TV to come out after one of their homosexual friends have died and will make the statement that they never knew that he was that way. Of course, that's hard to believe, but it is possible that sometimes we don't know a person as well as we think we do. 

I remember the deal with Rock Hudson and I think it was Debbie Reynolds (maybe) that made the comment that she was one of only a very few that knew he was a homosexual. If it wasn't her, whoever it was said that Rock was always scared to death that his fans would find out and stray away from him, which would have cost him dearly in the pocketbook back in those days. No matter what your beliefs were, to support a gay man or woman was also a bad reflection on you. 

I look back from time to time and I think to myself, "How times have changed." Heck, I had a gay friend that I didn't know was gay and he was married with a little girl. He finally couldn't stand the pressure, so when his daughter graduated high school, he told his wife. She was devastated and she divorced him. 

He died just a year or so after the divorce from Hepatitis (I don't know which one), which they found after he was in a violent car wreck and also pneumonia.  

Jim Nabors was still "in the closet" when he was in TAGS, and did not officially come out until his marriage to his long-time pal, Stan Cadwallader, in 2013.
