  • Barney on patrol!

    8.0
    This is a very funny and fresh entry--with many hilarious moments. The highlight has to be when Barney finally gets Andy to get in the sidecar, and the men in town have disconnected the sidecar and the motocycycle, and Barney takes off and Andy just stays there! A not to be missed scene! The episode is particularly good for delving into Barney's neurotic tendencies and his pretentiousness. He drives Aunt Bee crazy and nearly knocks her over with his motocycle--she is fit to be tied! My only regret is that the resolution (although clever) did not actually give Andy an opportunity to really teach Barney, thus lacking any real emotional connection in the conclusion. This is a small point, however, because the episode is really about comedy and humor rather than any deep moral undertone.moreless

    • When considering how to deal with Barney Aunt Bee mentions something she saw in a movie once - the allies string a wire across the road and when the Germans come through on their motorcycles...

      A scene very close to what she describes can be seen in the classic WWII film The Great Escape. Steve Mcqueen's character uses a wire to kill a German and steal his motorcycle leading the famous motorcycle chase scene near the end of the film.

    • The Battle of Château-Thierry was fought on July 18, 1918 and was one of the first actions involving the United States American Expeditionary Force (AEF) under General John J. "Black Jack" Pershing. It was a battle in World War I as part of the Second Battle of the Marne, initially prompted by a German offensive launched on July 15 against the newest troops on the front, the American AEF.
