This show needs to STAY on the air. It's an awesome wholesome show for the family. My kids enjoy watching it. I enjoy watching it. It's one of those shows where you can watch it over and over and over again and never get tired of it. Andy Griffith is awesome in every episode, the "perfect father" who is capable of making mistakes, but still comes out looking like the hero.
While I never lived in the 50's, it's kinda interesting to see what it must have been like in small town America in the 1950's. Classic! Great show for the family!
