  • The Music Man!

    The third episode in the series gives another good portrayal of Mayberry and its townspeople. James Best as Jim Lindsey is phenomenal and the chemistry between him and Andy Griffith is exceptional.Barney comes into his own into this episode, and the character of Barney Fife is truly launched! Watching Barney dance is definitely worthe the price of admission on this one!
  • Andy helps Jim get a job.

    I always enjoy watching this episode when it comes on. This show was very good. A very young Rosco (James Best)tries and tries to make it. Andy helps him make a band. It is a good ep to watch.
    It shows from beginning Andy was a good man around Mayberry and was very popular and respected and thats how he became sheriff.\'
    You can see his influence in this episode.
    Jim Lindsey and the gang would come on later in the season. Jim and Andy have a great chemistry together and act very well together.
    This is a very enjoyable episode for all to watch.
