  1. Here's a fun one to watch for, especially if you enjoy behind-the-scenes tidbits. Some posters on here mentioned that while Buddy and Mel always traded insults, Morey Amsterdam and Richard Deacon were actually friends. They would get together between takes to work out some of the insult jokes. If you watch the episode The Vigilante Ripped My Sportscoat, you'll notice a neat little moment between the actors. The opening scene is a complex gag that needs perfect timing. It involves Mel, Buddy, Sally, and a cup of yogurt. The scene goes off with perfect timing! Watch for a
  2. In a tiny way I'm almost jealous of Gomer. He knows his place in the world and he is happy with it. That's something many people never find.
  3. I love it when you catch those tiny moments where Robert Reed helps out when the kids forget a line. One scene when you can really see this is when Greg goes out for the football team. Greg and Mike have a quick chat and Greg is supposed to say, "Thanks, Dad" and step out of the way so the scene can continue. Instead Barry Williams says "Thanks, Dad" but just stands there. Without missing a beat, Robert Reed puts his hand on Barry's back and gives him a gentle nudge, reminding him to step off his mark. A small moment, but one that shows the good relationship between the actor
  4. To add to @GHScorpiosRule's good observation: I believe that this scene could not have been as powerful if not for the trust and friendship built up between Ron Howard and Andy Griffith. This also leads to a great conversation between Andy and Barney when Andy announces that he believes Opie. Andy Taylor: I told him I believed him. Barney Fife: You told him you beli... But Andy, what he told you's impossible! Andy Taylor: Well, a whole lotta times I've asked him to believe things that, to his mind, musta seemed just as impossible. Barney Fife: Oh, but, Andy... this si
  5. What's great is every story you hear is how well Don Knotts and Andy Griffith bonded with Ronnie Howard. Andy and Don were being interviewed about the time that Ron Howard started becoming a famous director. Andy Griffith: It's great to see Ronnie doing so well. He's a superstar now. Great to see good things for Ronnie. Don Knotts: Well, we call him "Mr. Howard" now. And they both chuckle, because of course he will always be Ronnie to both of them.
  6. Thank you for telling us about that! It's nice when child stars grow up to be successful outside of the business.
  7. Those of you who are in the theater know the reason for Tyler Hoechlin to always have a five o'clock shadow. Once they filmed a few scenes with him that way, they have to shoot EVERY scene that way. This is because some scenes will need to be re-shot and Tyler needs to look the same in the re-shot. If you want to have some fun, watch some of the shows that were created before the internet, TiVo, and forums like this one. They didn't have to be quite as careful and you can see the difference. For example, if you watch a Dukes of Hazzard rerun, it's fun to notice: "Hey! Cooter had
  8. Ian Armitage did a great job with his reaction. Startled, hurt, yet immediately grasping the situation.
  9. Did anybody else's heart break when you saw the look on Sheldon's face?
  10. Did anybody else watch Tyler Hoechlin on Seventh Heaven? And then see him here and think: "He was 14 on Seventh Heaven and now he is a dad of 14 year olds himself. Time flies!"
  11. I very much enjoy the notion of, "Okay. We know Superman is a superhero and Lois is one of the world's greatest reporters. Now, what if they had to try raising kids in the real world." The writers are pulling this theme off brilliantly! Did you notice the tiny father-son moments in this episode? Jordan: Was it about a girl? Clark: It's always about a girl. And when Jordan asks Clark to pretend he needs help with the water cooler, Clark makes a hilarious show of struggling to lift his side. Clark: Too much? Jordan: A little bit. (and smiles)
  12. This is another thing that jumped out at me. John Lithgow looked so YOUNG when they showed a few seconds of the movie.
  13. It is great watching the two of them bond. And this goes both ways. George learning to be a better father to Sheldon, and Sheldon coming around to appreciate the sacrifices George makes for the family. While George appreciated the free meal, I'm sure he had more fun things he could do than to put on a tie and go to dinner with a university donor.
  14. I love when the show brings out guest stars who were popular in the 1980's. It's fun to see them still around. But it was jarring to see Dave Foley looking so old!
  15. I wondered if anybody else would make that connection.
