Autographed photo of cast members of The Andy Griffith ShowI don’t want to leave this buried in the comments section, so I’ll put this here on the main page, though it’s very simple and brief.

In reference to my post on "A Great Father," commenter Steve wrote, in part, that he still considers The Andy Griffith Show to be "the greatest American TV show ever done. So full of love and warmth and wisdom and kindness and, when needed, courage!" Steve says, "My childhood was better because of that show. I still watch reruns of TAGS. I also have several DVDs of selected episodes."

My comment:

The Andy Griffith Show is one of the great accomplishments of contemporary American culture.
