TV Land just ran through their cycle and started at Season 1 this week, and I got to thinking about how things were so different in the beginning. I rank my favorite seasons from 5 down to 1, and all the color seasons after that.
The series changed so much from the beginning. They hired a character, Andy Griffith, not the actor he turned out to be. They had a cast of wacky characters around him, and when they finally made Andy the less wacky character, everything made better sense and oddly made things funnier.
And I got to thinking about what was the first episode you though was truly funny, good enough to be a TAGS classic.
And also, what was the first episode you considered the first moving, or emotional episode?
You can easily google a list of episodes by airdate. I'll post mine later, just wondered what you liked.
