Many of you will dismiss this installment as sentimental drivel about a TeeVee show that ran when Translator was a kid. I beg to differ. This program was much, much deeper than that, and was actually a shining example of how good TeeVee should work.
It had excellent writing, excellent production, and excellent acting from all of the principal players. It also started the careers of several, now prominent, actors.
Please put up with me here and open your mind to what was a really wonderful situation comedy. Also, I will pepper this with a bit of insight into the man himself and other roles that he has played that do not jibe with the kindly sheriff of Mayberry.
