I've been a huge fan of TAGS since the original episodes were broadcast for the first time, but recently many of the later color episodes have been available and I'm wondering if it's just me or are most of the later shows so corny and contrived as to be ridiculous ? I try not to criticize anything unjustly, but it just seems that so many of them tried way too hard for the laughs that came so much more easily in the series heydays of the early 1960's. It was nice when they were first re-run to see what all the locations looked like in color. Aunt Bee's "apple pie" ordered home, the courthouse, the diner and Floyd's, but the new characters, Warren and Howard just weren't funny. One thing I always loved about the B&W episodes was the music, always perfect for the storyline. In the color episodes the dance music parodies were so awful! - I don't mean to be mean by any means ! Just wondering if anyone else feels the same.
