Opie & the Bully: A tough kid keeps taking Opie's milk money. Andy helps Opie brave taking a punch to the eye with good humor (with a little patriotism thrown in for good measure). A little sugary.
Barney's Replacement: Barney thinks Andy is grooming anew man (Bob Rogers played by Mark Miller) to replace him as deputy.
Andy & the Woman Speeder: A pretty and charming big city lady (played by Jean Hagen) gets a speeding ticket and thinks she can outsmart the small town sheriff.
Mayberry Goes Bankrupt: The town people are shocked when they find out they owe the downtrodden resident with the eye-sore shack a ton of money.
Barney on the Rebound: A pretty young con artist and her husband try to swindle Barney in a breech of promise suit. Highlight: Barney giving the young, female stranger a police escort to the post office (just across the street) in front of a jealous Thelma Lou.
Opie's Hobo Friend: A ne'er-do-well vagrant played by Buddy Ebsen is a bad influence on Opie.
Crime-Free Mayberry: Andy and Barney are honored for achieving the lowest crime rate in the nation. Meanwhile, the Mayberry bank is being burgled.
The Perfect Female: Thelma Lou tries to set Andy up with her cousin-a champion skeet shooter.
Aunt Bee's Brief Encounter: Aunt Bee falls for a traveling handyman and old codger Henry Wheeler.Read more ›
This is when the series (almost) begins for me. I love the first season don't get me wrong (4 stars), but they seemed to try a bit too hard with the accents and the characters were just finding themselves, but I guess that's the way it's supposed to be. Then in Season 2 they ease the accents, the characters begin to form and all is almost there. This season has many more episodes I consider "classic" or "near classic" but we are not quite up to the Helen Crump "era" and to me THAT is the Andy I love.

This second year of "T.A.G.S." is really, really good. In addition to the episodes I mentioned above, there's also "The Manicurist", which is also one of my favorites. It features future "I Dream Of Jeannie" star Barbara Eden guest-starring as manicurist "Ellen Brown", who inadvertently stirs up a hornet's nest in Mayberry by just being her sweet (and ultra-fetching) self, causing a tad bit of jealousy among the wives of the barber shop-lounging men of Mayberry, who can't seem to take their eyes off of Ellen's obvious ... er ... curves. :-)
That episode also has Andy's terrific dialogue as he talks to the lovely fingernail-trimmer -- "Nature has been good to you, Ellen. I mean real, real, REAL good! I can't remember when I've seen nature spend so much time on any ONE person". (LOL!)
Luckily, the CBS censors weren't being too picky that week. Otherwise, that finely-tuned, roundabout sexual innuendo regarding Miss Brown's (Eden's) curvaceous shape just might not have been allowed to go over the early-'60s airwaves. :-)
Another very pleasing Season-Two 'Andy' entry is the episode called "Wedding Bells For Aunt Bee", which is one of the few tear-jerkers in the whole eight years the show was on the air. Aunt Bee becomes convinced she's hampering Andy's efforts to re-marry, so she decides she's going to marry the local dry cleaner (Fred Goss) in order to get out of Andy's hair.Read more ›

No, and the first commercials can be bypassed by pressing the "skip" botton on the remote control.
