The Andy Griffith Show "Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C."
Tuesday at 8:30PM | 7:30C
The season four finale served as a pilot episode for a spin-off, sending off Gomer Pyle to the Marines. Andy tags along, and must convince Gunnery Sergeant Vince Carter of Gomer's worth. Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. was quietly one of the most successful series of the 1960s, and it all began here.
The Patty Duke Show "A Visit from Uncle Jed"
Wednesday at 6AM | 5C
How strange and tragic that the two stars of this charming sitcom, headliner Patty Duke and onscreen father William Schallert, would pass away weeks apart from each other. This funny dinner party episode is a great showcase of Schallert's skills. Duke was not the only actor to play multiple roles. Here, in one of the final episodes of the three-season series, Schallert, who had previously popped in as uncle Kenneth Lane, plays another relative, Uncle Jed.
The Incredible Hulk "Married: Part 1"
Saturday at 7PM | 6C
Overseas, this season two premiere was released as a film titled The Bride of the Incredible Hulk. David Banner heads to Hawaii and falls for Dr. Carolyn Fields (Mariette Hartley). The psychological thriller offers one of the few moments in the series when Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno come face to face. Of course, you'll have to tune in next week to see how it all wraps up.
