"All In The Family"

Cliff and I own the DVD's of both the first and second season of All In The Family.  We love that show!  I've figured out the reason, too:  we can see our own faults and foibles in Archie, Meathead, Gloria and Edith; so we can relate to everything that happens on the show.

There's a lot of Archie in Cliff.... and I guess a lot of Meathead and Edith in me.  Every time we watch an episode, it leads to a discussion which probably makes us better people.  Maybe that's why "All In The Family" was such a hit.

It's really funny how we can watch it now and get a whole new perspective. We can also see how times have changed.  Anne

Perhaps we will have it here one day. We get a lot of American programmes.

The ability to laugh at oneself is one of the greatest gifts in the world!
We need another show like this today!

My ma was a total Edith Bunker --- right down to the hairstyle.  You can still see "Gloria" (Sally Struthers) as a character on 'Gilmore Girls'!!

I see a lot of my Dad in Archie. The racial stereotypes and very politically incorrect asides. :-/

Boy those days are long ago, aren't they?  You know I saw Archie's chair in Washington DC in one of the Smithsonian museums there.
