12/12, and not a question about Aunt Bee, Otis Campbell, Floyd Lawson, Helen Crump, or Howard Sprague...

12/12; easy one for me. I am a big fan of The Andy Griffith Show and Home Improvement and I breezed right thru this quiz.

12/12! I'm probably from Mayberry. :)

You gave me a score of 11, but I know I got a perfect 12! 7 isn't really a TAGS question, that's like saying David Carradine makes it a Kung Fu question!
12/12. Yes, #7 wasn't about TAGS at all.

Technically neither is the first question about the Andy Griffith Show (Ritz commercial), or the last question (Matlock). Or the question about No Time for Sergeants. I think it's fine. All's fair in MeTV and Jeopardy.

Actually, I have no problems with those questions. If you saw the Ritz commercial, Griffith was channeling Andy Taylor [Good cracker!]. Likewise, Matlock had a lot of TAGS DNA, and NTFS was clearly a precursor to TAGS. Fun fact: ABC attempted a NTFS series in 1964 and made the fatal mistake of putting in on against TAGS!

I actually remember that show, my family watched the first episode or so out of curiosity. My parents were big fans of the movie. Thanks for the reminder!
I don't think you understand what a perfect score is.
