Why I Love Andy Griffith

I was sad to hear that beloved longtime television actor Andy Griffith died recently. I have always loved Andy Griffith. I have to admit that I am a little too young to have watched “The Andy Griffith Show,” but I was (and secretly still am) a big fan of “Matlock.”

I loved watching him as Ben Matlock. He was always so clever. He could solve any murder, no matter how complicated. He was always very loving to others, but in a gruff sort of way and a little bit crotchety too. I think I liked him so much because he reminded me of my grandpa.  My grandpa died a couple years ago, and I feel like when I watch “Matlock” that I’m getting to see my grandpa again.

His influence has spanned generations. “The Andy Griffith Show” ran from 1960-1968 and “Matlock” ran from 1986-1996. Not many other actors can boast two hit shows that span nearly three decades. It is safe to say that no one compares to Andy Griffith, and no one will ever be able to replace him. He will be missed.
