  • Aunt Bee: The Dark Side

    5.0
    Never before has Aunt Bee been portrayed as calloused and closed minded (not to mention rude and just nasty) as she is in this episode. Though we've seen Aunt Bee's stubborn streak before ("Aunt Bee The Crusader" and "The Bazaar") there is little to redeem her attitude in this episode. The basic premise involves money willed to the church. Aunt Bee and Clara want the money spent on new choir robes. Howard suggests the funds be used to shore up the church's failing foundation. Aunt Bee practically blackmails Howard the church board in finding an alternate solution in some very "unChristianlike" behavior. In the end it's Howard's cool, logical mind that solves the issue and Bee and the scheming choir are basically given what they want.
