I have watched the Return to Mayberry movie a couple of times, but, I don’t think that it can compare to the original Andy Griffith Show.
I did enjoy seeing Barney & Thelma Lou finally get married, however. 👍

Channel 30 WFOX in Jacksonville FL should not be
Carrying Metv programs at all
If they don't want to carry the
Entire schedule of METV.
Metv should drop channel 30
WFOX and nice to a different
Local Jacksonville FL station.
MeTv please be A Sub channel
On a different Jacksonville FL station and pack up your Metv
Bags and get away from Ch 30.
There are several other Jacksonville tv stations besides
Channel 30 WFOX and Metv
Needs to move to another
TV station in Jacksonville.

Pretty much MayNOTberry for me, I guess.
I'm just RFD on these Mayberry quizzes. ("Really Dim")

Ron Howard did Return To Mayberry out of respect for Andy Griffith and the cast. He pretty much gave up acting for directing.

I'm pretty sure Opie's new job is in Binghamton. I remember that because I'm from the Binghamton area. Fun fact: so is Rod Serling (my father's cousin was in the same class as him), Richard Deacon, Bridget Moynahan, Jim Hutton, and quite a few other people.

I can't look at Ron Howard without thinking how gullible he and so many others were over that Smollett creep.
