James Murphy replied to Luther Heggs's discussion Just noticed..."And" and "Ange"
"Barney seems to say "Ange" a fair bit, although it's probably one of those things that doesn't happen as often as you think it does, but I don't know how you get Ange out of Andy, it's already shortened from Andrew, isn't it? I guess it's just a…"

James Murphy replied to rb's discussion tags favorites rated website
"These lists are generally just argument starters. I've had a brief look at the Top-10 and my favourite there would be "Crime Free Mayberry". 
I can't stand "Citizen's Arrest". Gomer's stubbornness and even arrogance, drives me mad. How it can be…"

James Murphy replied to rb's discussion interesting articles
"They certainly are interesting articles, albeit a touch cynical in tone. They seem to give the impression that both actresses were somewhat typecast perhaps, because of their roles in TAGS.
And in the Frances Bavier article, what on earth is meant…"

James Murphy replied to Jim Ochsner's discussion Return to Mayberry
"It’s only a silly technicality but Andy & Helen’s child didn’t arrive until the second season of Mayberry RFD, so maybe it didn’t exist in the world of TAGS. But then they weren't married until the first episode of Mayberry RFD, so it's a strange…"

James Murphy replied to Keevy Hazelton's discussion 'Goober and the Truckers' Paradise'
"I’m always intrigued by these pilot episodes of prospective TV series even if they aren’t very good. I don’t know if George Lindsey’s “star power” was big enough for him to lead his own sitcom. He comes across more as a supporting player than a…"

James Murphy replied to Jim Ochsner's discussion Return to Mayberry
"It’s very hard – virtually impossible – to recreate the “magic” of an old TV show favourite, but I think Return To Mayberry was about as good as it could possibly be. Almost the entire old cast was in it unlike a lot of other reunion-style programs.…"

James Murphy replied to Mayor Pike's discussion Here is a Trivia Question For You
"Those lists often make fascinating reading. Ernest T Bass only in eight episodes and Helen Crump 66? It feels like he was in more and she was in much less. Opie not appearing in 17 (out of 249) seems about right though. If Barney Fife was in 161…"

"Elinor Donahue in Diff'rent Strokes, Season 1 episode, The Woman (1979). She played a woman who was to marry Mr Drummond and she wanted to send the kids to boarding schools, so the kids try (successfully) to stop the marriage. I think if I was Phil…"

"Don Knotts made an appearance in McHales Navy near the end of the show's run. The sixth-to-last episode, Little Red Riding Doctor (1966). He played a navy doctor (psychiatrist) investigating cases of battle fatigue, in typical Don Knotts style."

"Jack Burns in The Partridge Family, Season 2 premiere episode, Dora Dora Dora (1971). He played the father of a girl who wanted to be a singer that auditions with the Partridges, but can't sing too well."

James Murphy replied to Gary W. Burg's discussion Episodes We Could Do Without
"A Case Of A Punch In The Nose is one episode I could do without, and that's a B&W one. Barney's relentlessness and stubborness at not letting the old matter drop not only gets on Andy's nerves but mine as well. There's probably a few more, but…"
