  • Miss Ellie Meets Sheriff Andy!

    A very well directed episode, although does not hit the bull's eye often enough. Elinor Donahue as Ellie is bright and wonderful--but it is clear that the chemistry is not quite right with Andy--although there is some fun in trying to make it happen. The scene through the window between Opie and Miss Ellie is particularly well done. The episode is quite funny in spots and Andy's southern charm is very, very potent!
  • Ellie is introduced early in the series first as the bad girl pharmacist only later to open up and become one of the nicest town members by honoring her uncle's prior agreements with customers.

    Average episode of new girl coming to town with no prior storyline or mention of an incident creating such a need of a new person at the drug store. Have not seen much at the drug store in previous episodes showing the need for this type action. Ellie just seems as though she is trying to be a bully as the new person in town only later after having several arguments she decides to lighten up and become a very nice town member. Maybe as her being the beauty of the town in these early episodes her being nice would have probably received a higher score.
