I’m watching The Andy Griffith Show. Yeah, really. What can I say? I switched on the tube and there it was. And, to be honest, it was a sweet 30 minutes.

But anyway … the church women’s choir sang at the end (it’s the episode where Aunt Bea is vying to get choir robes for the women with a $500 gift to the church, while Howard wants to make the church level with the money). But the women … they look and sound like they are actually singing. And know the words and notes and are involved. I’ve not seen this on many shows. Most shows I’ve seen show people singing, sometimes we hear them singing out of tune (after all, no church singers sing in tune, right?) and I can usually tell, too, that the actors can’t really sing, or don’t know the words, are just look stupid.

I’m just sayin’.
