"Countrified" (spoilers)
4 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

(Spoilers) This episode is hilarious. The best of the series. I remember it like it was yesterday. Wish I could find it online. Edie McClurg is perfect!

As a secretary for many years, I really appreciated the real life situation, and having lived in the south, I found the humor spot on.

The character of Patty Poole and the dynamic with Mr. Hogan (neighbors, friends, boss-employee) was great fun. Who knew she was this good? Too good for the job, apparently.

It was set up perfectly. You knew it was a bad idea and you knew it would go wrong, but you had no idea she would be so good. That was so unexpected, it was delightful.
