I've never liked them much. I bought the DVD box set for the first 5 seasons but wasn't interested in the last 3.
Don Knotts and Jim Nabors was gone, the new characters like Warren, Emmet and Howard just weren't funny to me, poor Floyd had had the stroke, and Andy seem irritated by everyone. There wasn't the fun picking on Barney, and the true friendship between those two with any other characters. This is nothing new to many TAGS fans.
Today, TV Land got to the end of season 5 and started showing the first episodes of Season 6. They've done this before but usually revert back to the first season pretty soon.
However, I'm enjoying watching the color episodes, noticing the scenery better, and Mayberry seems closer than the earlier episodes. Bringing a touch of nostalgia a little closer to me.
Do you like the color episodes? Do you still watch them?
