  • Mayberry Dance Fever!

    This episode gets my vote for weirdest. The dance sequence alone (most of which is edited out of network reruns) is nearly surreal with its quick cuts, off camera angles, and beat-style photography. Add to this Howard's out of character attempts at being a swinger and you've got all the makings of one of the most unusual episodes of the series. The final season was marked by a sharp deviation from series norms and this episode has to be the culimantion of that fad. There are some funny moments to be had here and if nothing else we finally get to see Howard's mother cut the proverbial apron strings and leave Howard and the rest of Mayberry for good. As always Emmitt becomes one of the redeeming factors of this final season and save the party and the episode.
