We continue our visit from last week to the March 5, 2011 a panel discussion on Southern Rural Humor in TV & Film held at the George Lindsey UNA Film Festival. This time we hear mostly from me, Allan Newsome, as I go into the positive aspects of how rural life was portrayed on The Andy Griffith Show.

As a reminder, the participants were Birmingham author Tim Hollis, actor Danny Vinson, media studies scholar Dr. Jacob Podber, and your host of this podcast.  The topic went a great deal into the portrayal of rural characters.

Much of the discussion has been about how rural people, mostly southern, were negatively portrayed  on television, radio, and film.  I attempted to move the discussion to the more positive feel to help the panel end on a high note.  Our love of The Andy Griffith Show and the characters we found there is not limited to folks from the south. There are fans from all parts of the United States and around the globe.  That, in itself, is a testament to the character and values found in Mayberry.

Those characters become like trusted friends. We look forward to visiting our friends as often as possible.  That’s true in “real” life and with our friends on the small screen living in our hometown of Mayberry, NC.
