  • Andy gets a Date?

    8.0
    First let me say that Andy has NEVER been cuter than in this episode. Very well written, and very "homespun" quality to the show. In this episode, we really see Andy as the clown. It's interesting to see how they originally wrote Andy's character and how, with the passage, of time and Barney's emergence as the true comedic talent, Andy became more of a straight man. Seeing Barney try to take Ellie out is very funny and watching Andy get so flustered at the idea that Ellie might be "fixin' to get married" is stretching the truth a little--but great fun nonetheless.moreless
  • Andy feels like he is being forced into an unfavorable proposition between him an Ellie that makes him feel as though she is thinking marriage, while Andy is not.

    6.5
    An average episode early in the series exploiting the fact that Andy is not married and Opie may be ready, willing and able to take on a new peerson in his life. I like the fact that the shy Andy twist his story around to Aunt Bee that it was his idea to go out when in reality he could not bring himself to even ask Ellie for the date. Then later while he was remembering it all he fell in the fantasy that Ellie only asked him to go out so she could trap him into something more serious like marriage which was not her idea at all only to end up going with Andy and Opie after all.moreless
