Barney's Back In Town
1 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode marks the reunion of Don Knotts and Andy Griffith. Don Knotts plays the next door neighbor to Ben Matlock (Andy Griffith). He is a little obnoxious and pushy, but other than that he is a good man. The plot revolves around the purchase of a used DeLorean by Knotts. Turns out the car is a lemon and Les (Knotts) decides to go back to the dealer and demand his money back. Of course when he arrives at the lot he finds the salesman dead under his own automobile. Les is charges with the crime and Matlock agrees to defend him. What follows is typical of the other Matlock episodes. All in all a pretty good show. Don Knotts would appear in several more shows as Les, and always gave a good performance. It was no accident that Don Knotts won 5 consecutive Emmys, the man was a very good actor. If this episode comes on, give it a watch.
