If you’re a fan of shows like “Mad Men,” “Game of Thrones” or “Breaking Bad,” then you should send a thank you note to Clint Walker. If you’re the creator of a TV drama, then you should send a royalty check to Clint. That’s because had it not been for Clint Walker, the evolution of adult television dramas would have been significantly altered....

For many of us, “The Andy Griffith Show” is the greatest TV program of all time. That’s because it was about relationships.
