  • Leaving the lunatics in charge!

    This is a classic Andy Griffith Show, where we once again see just exactly why Sheriff Andy Taylor is the amazing sheriff he is! What's most interesting about this episode is that Andy actually is a little testy and out of sorts (something we rarely get to see!) and truly needs a vacation. Barney insists that he take the vacation he should have taken in June, and Andy reluctantly but gratefully accepts. This puts BARNEY in charge with Gomer as his deputy--this two get into such trouble it is hard to actually know which part is the funniest--when they let the maximum security prisoner take the keys and slip out of the courthouse, when they mistakenly set him free after Andy (while camping) spots him and ties him up, or when Gomer "catches" Barney. A true winner!!
