Best The Andy Griffith Show DVD Review

The Andy Griffith Show (DVD) Review

One of the most beloved shows in television history, The Andy Griffith Show takes its viewers back to a simpler time of small town America, apple pie, and black and white television…

The trademark whistling theme song is one of the most recognizable in history, and the duration of the show in syndicated reruns is unrivaled by its peers.

The Andy Griffith Show follows the exploits of the small town of Mayberry and its family values, no nonsense sheriff Andy.

Widowed, and father to a small boy named Opie, Andy is joined in Mayberry by his sidekick Deputy Barney Fife, his relative and housekeeper Aunt Bee, and a host of other eccentric characters.

But the show stealer is Barney Fife (Don Knotts) who plays the role of a sometimes incompetent, kooky deputy always in over his head.

The onscreen dynamic between Griffith and Knotts is truly magical. Both men would go on to heralded careers in show business with Knotts starring in numerous roles, such as Mr. Furley on Three’s Company, and Griffith as the title star of Matlock.

And Ron Howard (Opie) would go on to establish himself as one of Hollywood’s most well-known directors…

This first season DVD of The Andy Griffith Show is packed with some of the best episodes in the show’s history.

Episodes three and thirty-one feature the talented guitar playing of actor James Best, better known as Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane from The Dukes Of Hazzard.

Numerous other famous faces turn up throughout season one. In fact, if you look closely enough, you might even see the Maytag repairman…

The Andy Griffith Show DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the series premiere “The New Housekeeper” in which Andy’s former housekeeper, Rose, gets married, prompting his search for a replacement.

But Opie, unhappy with Rose’s departure, doesn’t take too kindly to the new woman in the house, Andy’s Aunt Bee… Other notable episodes include

The Guitar Player” in which Andy utilizes his powers as sheriff to help a young local guitarist (James Best) realize his dream of playing in a band for a living, and “Alcohol and Old Lace”

in which, while on a quest to shut down local distilleries, Andy and Barney are surprised to uncover a trail that leads them to two aged sisters…

The Andy Griffith Show (Season 2) DVD Review

One of the most popular TV shows in history, The Andy Griffith Show transports viewers back in time to a simpler era dominated by small town things such as apple pie, family, neighbors, and black and white television…

The memorable theme song whistle is widely regarded as one of the more recognizable ever produced, and the long-standing syndication of the show‘s reruns is unprecedented.

The Andy Griffith Show centers around the small town of Mayberry and its easy-going sheriff Andy Griffith. With his wife long passed, he’s father to a young boy named Opie (Ron Howard).

Andy and Opie are joined in Mayberry by Deputy Sheriff Barney Fife, Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a number of other crazy characters.

The Andy Griffith Show (Season 2) DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere “Opie and the Bully” in which a fellow schoolboy torments Opie, forcing Andy to give some fatherly advice…

Other notable episodes include “Barney’s Replacement” in which Barney comes to believe that Andy is grooming his replacement,

and “Sheriff Barney” in which Barney is offered the job of sheriff by a rival township (a job he declines following Andy’s offer to let Barney be Mayberry’s sheriff for a day)…

The season concludes with “Deputy Otis,” an episode in which the town drunk Otis (because he’s written letters to his family on County stationary) has led his family to believe that he’s a deputy in Mayberry…
