"He looks vaguely familiar, probably because I grew up with tv. I was born in 1950, so I remember some of the very earliest programs, sitcoms, and all the HOF entertainers from back then. Thank God for Danny Thomas, who gave us The Andy…"
"I agree with all of your choices, Matt. I could live without them, but for me, the B&W episodes of The Andy Griffith Show are a package deal. As for the color shows, watching Miss Frump doing the frug, or whatever abomination she was…"
"Mayberry being Mayberry, I'd rather think that Floyd was widowed by the time he met Madelyn as The Gay Deceiver. Not that we wanted Melba bumped off, but she probably fell down the celler stairs bringing up the preserves.By the way,…"

"Yeah, TVLand REALLY cuts 'em up pretty good, takes out pieces of episodes, and they sure overload us with commercials. I appreciate MeTV, 'cause they play all the B&Ws with Deputy Fike on 'em, and of course the ones he…"
"I believe you're right about the episode being largely flashbacks, but not narrations, like the Hilda Mae one in 'Andy Saves Barney's Morale'. I know who was interfering with the echo effect....it was them bothersome brats…"
