  • 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.
