  • The "new generation"

    7.0
    This was a fairly interesting episode that features the fairly new character of Mike (Sam's son) (soon to be featured in Mayberry RFD)and his problems with a school bully. That's the beginning of the episode--the remainder deals with Mike's adoration of Opie and wanting to do everything with him. This is fine with Opie until a new girl moves in next door and Opie wants to spend time with the new girl. I think the episode would have been funnier if they had stayed with the concept of the school bully and not had it done with just a simple word from Opie. Perhaps have Opie get caught up with the older brother of the little bully? Something like this would have been more in keeping with the show and it's premise. This one seemed to just sort of wander around aimlessly. It was still enjoyable but missing some key ingredients.moreless
