  • A great Christmas Episode.

    9.5
    What can I say about the "Christmas Story" episode of "The Andy Griffith Show"? How about what the series is all about, is guaranteed to put a smile on your face, and the storyline makes your heart break a little for Ben, yet then makes your hear feel good as you watch him give out the presents he brought with him, making everybody think that he acidently packed those instead his necessities for his stay in the jail for disturbing the peace.

    I like how the character of Ben changed through the course of the episode. At first, he could be described as the town scrooge, for wanting Sam to be arrested on Christmas Eve for making moonshine, keeping him away from his family. But seeing how Andy is accomodating the family man, and knowing that he has no one to spend the holiday with, he does all he could to get arrested to spend time at the party at the jailhouse.

    I found that by the end of the episode it was nice to see how Ben became a caring person and brought everybody at the jailhouse presents and how everybody was continued to be nice to him even though he was probably back to his same Scrooge the following day.
