Editorial Reviews

Few television characters have impacted family culture as much as Andy Taylor (Andy Griffith), Barney Fife (Don Knotts), Opie (Ron Howard), and the idyllic American town of Mayberry. As town sheriff and widowed father, Andy teaches his son the meaning of family, friendship, and upstanding citizenship in this all-time classic series, now in remastered HD with slick-as-a-whistle special features!

5.0 out of 5 stars Episode guide for season one July 22, 2004
By L.M.W.
I am anxiously awaiting October 12 to view these DVDs. Let's hope Paramount releases quality, like with their boxed set of The Honeymooners. Until then, here's an episode guide for your reference.

First season air dates:

October 1960-May 1961

1. The New Housekeeper: Aunt Bee comes to live with Andy and Opie when their housekeeper Rosie gets married.

2. The Manhunt: State police ask Andy and Barney to step aside while they hunt for a criminal. But Andy tricks the criminal at the end by allowing him to ?escape? in his leaky fishing boat.

3. The Guitar Player: Andy tries to help Jim Lindsey, a young guitar player from the hills, get a job with Freddie Fleet and His Band With a Beat.

4. Runaway Kid: Opie befriends an 8-year-old runaway.

5. Opie?s Charity: Andy becomes upset when Opie contributes a measly three cents to an underprivileged children?s fund.

6. Ellie Comes to Town: Andy becomes interested in the new ?lady druggist,? Miss Ellie Walker (Elinor Donahue).

7. Irresistible Andy: Andy thinks that Ellie is a ?deadly female hunter? out to get him. But Ellie will have something to say about that!

8. A Feud is a Feud: Andy tries to end a feud between two neighboring families.

9. Andy the Matchmaker: To lift Barney?s morale, Andy stages a minor robbery and encourages him to date the shy seamstress in town.

10. Stranger in Town: Mayberry citizens are perplexed by an out-of-towner who seems to know everything about everyone.

11. Christmas Story: Scrooge-like businessman Ben Weaver causes trouble on Christmas Eve, resulting in the gang having to celebrate Christmas at the courthouse.

12. Ellie for Council: Ellie?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Quality is Incredible! November 17, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I agree with "MB" and his review except for the complaint about the "sponsors" and all. I also disagree with "Barney's Brother" for the following reason: GET A LIFE! We FINALLY get the AGS on quality DVDs from the studio - and they are less than $1 per episode! Can someone get a clue here? I guess you'd like to spend $60 just to get some original commercials? Why nitpick?

"MB" is right on about the quality. The picture is so clear and the sound is great! You can see many things (such as shadows from ceiling mikes) you have never noticed before. Man, it is so much different than watching on TV reruns or the bargain-bin public domain episode DVDs or VHS tapes.

All of each show is here - minus I guess those commercials. Who cares? They are NOT part of the actual show anyway!

Overall I say 5 stars are NOT ENOUGH! This is a dream come true. I cannot wait until they release all the B&W years (first 5 seasons). You can have the color years and characters such as Howard and that new deputy who wouldn't win a talent contest with kindergardener's! Long live Barney Fife!

5.0 out of 5 stars Andy Fixes Everything... July 30, 2006
This first season-a must for anyone even remotely interested in vintage television at its best. While the first episode, technicaly, should be considered an episode of the Danny Thomas Show (originally airing 2/15/1960), the first episode of the actual series (airing 10/3/1960) is well worth the price of the set. This collection introduces us to some of the most unique television characters ever created: Sheriff Andrew Jackson Taylor, Deputy Sheriff Bernard P. Fife, Opie Taylor, Beatrice 'Aunt Bee' Taylor, Floyd Lawson, Otis Campbell, Ellie Mae Walker and Thelma Lou (we never know her last name).

The following is a brief synopsis of each featured episode, with some trivia.

Disc 1

1. The New Housekeeper:

Andy and Opie's housekeeper, Rose, leaves to be married and Opie finds Aunt Bee difficult to accept as Rose's replacement.

**1st of two episodes where Barney is referenced as Andy's cousin.

2. The Manhunt:

State police comb the Mayberry area for an escaped convict, refusing Andy and Barney's offer of help.

**2nd time Barney is referenced as Andy's cousin.

**1st appearance of Otis Campbell, the town drunk.

**Watch for Barney's mother.

3. The Guitar Player:

Andy helps Mayberry's best guitar player, Jim Lindsey (James Best)get a job with Bobby Fleet (Henry Slate) and His Band with a Beat.

4. Ellie Comes to Town:

The "new lady druggist", Ellie Walker (Elinor Donahue), comes to town and has trouble adapting to Mayberry life.

**This is Ellie's 1st appearance.

5. Irresistible Andy:

Andy mistakenly thinks Ellie is a "desperate, determined hunter" eyeing him for matrimony.

5.0 out of 5 stars This release is Great ! November 18, 2004
By Ol' Sam
Folks, if you love the Andy Griffith show, you will not be disappointed in this set. I just read the review from Pi and I can't imagine him/her being a true fan of the show and cutting this set down the way they have. It doesn't matter that there are no extras, commercials, etc. Us life long fans of the show pretty much know all the extra stuff from books, interviews, articles etc. What matters most is that these are the complete shows in the best uncut quality that we have ever seen and they are our's to enjoy for life. I've probably seen each episode more than a couple dozen times each and this is like seeing them for the first time. This set is what we've all been waiting for and don't let anyone tell you that it's not. Let's only keep our fingers crossed that the best is yet to come with seasons 2 thru 5.
