Subject: writer's blips

"Has anyone else noticed how very controlling Helen could be and that 
Andy let her get away with it? I've been watching some color episodes 
that I taped recently and found this disturbing as I feel it is out of 
character for Andy. When she was first introduced to the show she was 
rather a humble, lady-like woman. However, even tho Andy should've been 
more forthright, in the episode where he had to confer with the lady 
attorney in Raleigh, she is downright nasty and not the least bit 
mindful about embarrassing Lee Drake and then very snide at the end. 
Again, in the episode where she wants to get Howard and the new nurse 
together, she is flat-out demanding and mean to Andy till he caves in.  
And why didn't she reveal her scrape with the law in Kansas City to Andy 
before he had to inadvertently discover it for himself? I feel these 
instances were poor mistakes made by the writers fumbling for new 
storylines.  Just my two cents worth.

I agree. Helen is my least favorite character on the show. She is not very 
"Mayberry-like". Have you read the book "Andy and Don"? It appears that in real 
life Andy allowed himself to be dominated by demanding women, including Aneta 
Randy of Sevierville
