WFOX MeTv channel 30.2 in Jacksonville Florida refuses to Air "Andy or Month of Mayberry" while the rest of the USA can enjoy this great show . They will not even answer emails or text as to why !

From having worked in television, these syndication contracts have a "market exclusive" clause. If it's being shown over-the-air on another channel, then MeTv can't show it over-the-air.

hint hint - the spoiled kid
KTW JHP 37 months ago
I agree. That episode was just on!
LH JHP 37 months ago

I thought Opie worked for Mr. Foley!
JHP Michele 37 months ago
must have been one of those lame color eps - he did work for Foley

Remember Andy killed a carp (oh the humanity)- but in later eps there was Old Sam

Michele SteveAnderson 37 months ago

mrdoolin 37 months ago
Yeah, that score about says it. Don't take quizzes unless you've watched the show that the quiz is about!

Ouch 14/25. Need to pay closer attention.

Yipes! 9/25, I imagined that I would do MUCH MUCH better than that! Guess I don't know Opie as much as I thought I did. Oh well, I guess it's an excuse for watching even more Andy Griffith.
JHP Arnold_Ziffel4_life 37 months ago
OK here's some skeleton scripts:
Andy has to go to serve papers on the post road
barney is charge ; gets perps in the cells and then he loses them

or opie does something "wrong" and it aint (there are a few of those)
"mayday mayday Sarah!"

the last - Andy tells character named "X" to do something and they don't

barney thinks HELLen and andy are getting married and andy in the end gets yelled or perturbed

9/25...But, in my defense, I'm one of those people that usually only watch the black and white Barney era. Still a fun quiz though!

Better luck next time! Try not to take it out on someone else. oops
