  • Thelma Lou's the Catch!

    8.5
    A very, very funny episode, with Alan Hale Jr. excellently cast as Jeff. He strikes just the right note of brashness and sweetness. The episode begins on a hysterical note with Barney collapsing into Andy's arm when Big Jeff pats Barney on the back--and knocks him over! Watching his reaction when he realizes that Jeff has picked Thelma Lou is a classic moment--and totally Barney Fife! Of course, Andy figures out exactly how to get Jeff to reject the idea of Thelma Lou as his fiancee, by trying to "citify" this country boy. Those scenes too are quite well done. All in all, a very well done episode.moreless
