One day I was zapping through the channels and suddenly I stopped because I thought I had just seen "Matlock" as a young man. There he was, Andy Griffith in black and white and sooooo young. I wondered because in Germany he is only known as Matlock, who is grey-haired and old already. The Andy Griffith Show has never been published (aired) in Germany or anywhere in Europe as far as I know. I did't know that Andy Griffith had a career before "Matlock".
I was done zapping and watched The Andy Griffith Show for a while and I really liked it. Soon I set up my VCR to record all episodes. I was simply hooked! Of couse I bought all my favorite 5 seasons over Amazon already, I really don' t like the colored ones and I miss Barney there, just isn't the same anymore. I wonder if Don Knotts ever regret to part from the show?
I find it amazing that I became such a huge fan, I mean I didn't grow up in the States, I don't know anything about the Sixties and the American lifestyle and mentality back then, but to me it is the most wonderful tv - series for the whole family, a treasure, just timeless! I would move right into Mayberry if I could!
My stay in the U.S. was in the South so I got used to the accent very well, however I cannot share my obsession for this tv - show with anyone of my friends or family here in Germany because the Southern accent is just too difficult to understand for them and there is no German language (synchronisation) available and never will be. I understand about 90 % of what they are saying and I wish there would be subtitles available since we don't have CC in Germany. At least then I would be able to read the words that I don't understand and then get the meaning or look them up.
So you guys here are the only ones who understand my passion!
I bought this DVD only because of the reunion movie, I had never seen it before. Love it!
Unfortunately, Andy Griffith died last week, so I guess only Ron Howard is left.
'''' R.i.P. Andy Griffith ''''
and thanks for hours and hours of your everlasting and never dying work that (now thanks to Paramount) will be in our living rooms as long as we live!
I remember seeing the Danny Thomas episode long ago on TV, only to never run across it again. Having it now on DVD is a real treat, as this is the true birth of the show. Even though Frances Bavier played a slightly different character from Aunt Bee and Opie was a bit more rambunctious, and Andy’s somewhat more morally ambiguous, it’s a thoroughly entertaining look at the origin of the show.
As for the movie, it’s a fantastic nostalgia trip to the wildly successful reunion that was a ratings smash. Most of the characters still living at the time show up, from Gomer and Goober to Barney and Thelma Lou, not to mention Ernest T. Bass, Otis, the Darlings, and Howard Sprague. You’ll also notice several of the familiar faces of former extras and bit players from the show, making the movie a fun way to remember the show’s glory days.
Whether you have the regular episodes in this set or not, I’d advise picking this up if you’re a fan of the show. Having the pilot and reunion movie is wonderful, and I’m overjoyed they were finally made available. I think they might’ve done better selling this if it had just been released as the movie, with the Danny Thomas episode as a special feature. Rest assured, though, if you’ve ever been a fan of The Andy Griffith Show, you’re going to want to have this. It’s a welcome and much appreciated release.
Even nicer is the COMPLETE version of the pilot on this DVD set unlike the previous release by Paramount! It now includes the suit rental shop owner scene with Wil Wright, Andy's final speech on Danny's television show is extended, the epilogue is longer, and there is now a Maxwell House commercial with Andy and Danny right before the closing credits.
Season Three's "The Darlings Are Coming" is another episode that was edited on Paramount's previously released DVD. The 50th Anniversary disc contains a still edited, but different version. A Post Cereals commercial with Andy and Opie has been added just after the opening credits. Now only a line or two of dialogue has been snipped from Andy's first meeting with the Darlings (I believe more was cut from the previous release). A brief portion of the Darlings playing music just after they arrive in their hotel room is still missing along with their performance of "Salty Dog" and the bit of dialogue just before. However, the epilogue showing Andy marrying Charlene and Dud just before the Darling family plays "Cindy" has been restored.
Season Four's "The Sermon For Today" still has problems with a partially missing laugh track. The first DVD release of this episode contained no laugh track at all. Paramount treated this as a defect and replaced the DVDs with a "fixed" version, but this episode along with "A Black Day For Mayberry" (which does NOT appear on this 50th Anniversary set) still lose their laugh tracks at the 18 minute mark.
I'll add to this review as I find out more.
