An excellent sitcom, POINT BLANK!
This is definitely my favorite show and I am glad that there are re-runs on Nick-At-Nite. One of my favorite episodes is when Archie gets locked in the cellar and is finally "rescued" by a repair man, but Archie is drunk and he thinks that the repair man is god, little does know, that the repair man is black!(not that it matters, but to archie?!) And when he bows down to him and lifts his head to see his "god" the audience roared in laughter as did I. Sometimes I wish that this show was on now, (of course with all the stupid issues today, that would be close to impossible), but then again it wouldn't be as good as it was, with all of the "1970's issues" to make fun of and comment on....infact, I think that the issues of the day greatly helped make this show the hit it was, along with the superb acting of course.I hope this show remains on the air for a long time, because I could never get sick of watching All In the Family!

Did You Know?


According to Danielle Brisebois,during the series run from 1970-78 it was taped in front of a live studio audience. However, when the show entered its ninth season, 1978-79, the producers abandoned the studio audience and began taping the show without them. However, after each episode was taped it would be shown to a studio audience and their laughter would be recorded. After the taping of Norman Lear's _"One Day at a Time" Carroll O'Connor and Jean Stapleton would appear and play "Those Were The Days" live, followed by showing an episode of "All In The Family" played for live audience response. This would explain the change in the voiceover heard during the end credits of the 1978-79 season, with O'Connor now saying "'All In The Family' was played to a studio audience for live responses".


Archie Bunker: Get away from me!


From the inside, reading backwards, we see "Kelcy's Bar". In most, but not all episodes, the ending credits spell the name of the Brendan Dillon or Bob Hastings character as "Kelsey", not "Kelcy".

Alternate Versions

There is a scene cut out of episode "Archie And The Mob" as it is seen in the Complete 2nd Season DVD set. It is a short (roughly 30 second) clip of dialog. It is a scene where Archie mentions the 'fraternity' that the shoemaker belongs to. The scene is present in the Columbia House VHS edition of the episode.
