  • Andy Meets Helen

    This is a fabulous episode and important in terms of the series long-term storytelling. The addition of Helen Crump begins a new phase in the show, and it is interesting to see the sparks fly between Andy and Helen right at the beginning. The differences between them are obvious, he with his homespun wisdom, her with her book smarts. Yet they blend so well together even in this early entry. The episode itself is very funny and deals with Opie's reticence about learning history. Listening to Barney's version of the emancipation proclaimation, and Andy's storytelling of Paul Revere's ride are CLASSIC. Extremely funny and warm, this is one of the series's best entries.
