Classic without Doubt !
25 January 2007 | by (Greenville, GA) – See all my reviews

I watched this growing up in Georgia and it captured the flavor of the South ! Victor French plays the sheriff who's bumbling deputies are always messing up things. Baker is the black deputy with a little more intelligence than the others but still they all make you laugh ! I'm not sure how long this series lasted but I know it had a plot line all its own. This can't be compared to "In the Heat of the Night" because the show all originated in the police station. The fat mayor would come in and complain to the sheriff and then it would go on down the line. I was lucky enough to record one episode in the late 1980's and I have loved watching it. Columbia Pictures Television should give everyone the chance to see this classic comedy again ! It's well worth your time watching it.
