Editorial Reviews

The fifth season of ALL IN THE FAMILY continued its trailblazing formula, tackling controversial issues with shockingly irreverent humor. Number one in the ratings for the fifth straight year, audiences now felt as comfortable in the Bunkers' living room as they did in their own. But this would be a year of change for Archie (Carroll O'Connor) and Edith (Jean Stapleton), with friends moving on up and family moving out. Like the rest of the country, the Bunkers cope with rising inflation (in a multi-episode storyline), causing Edith to join the workforce. Meanwhile, next-door neighbors the Jeffersons leave their modest Queens house for a "deluxe apartment in the sky;" the pilot for the spin-off series "The Jeffersons" appears here as an episode of ALL IN THE FAMILY. By the end of the season, Mike (Rob Reiner) and Gloria (Sally Struthers) decide it's high time to move out of Archie's house to find their own place to live. Winner of a Golden Globe® award, the fifth season also

...the days of inflation and strikes, Lionel moving in, Archie going missing, the series' hundredth episode retrospective, "fair fighting", stealing from the workplace, the Jeffersons moving up and Mike finally graduating and he and Gloria making a move of their own. A nice season that still showcases some of the best comedy ever seen on sitcom television. In the fifth season the show was still a fan favorite, riding the wave of popularity it had established in the first season and built heavily on since the critically acclaimed second.

The fifth season contains the following 24 episodes:

The Bunkers and Inflation
Archie and Edith's 26th wedding anniversary coincides with worry that Archie's union will go on strike. Archie and Edith both learn of the strike separately and try to keep it from each other and their party guests.

The Bunkers and Inflation (2)/Archie Underfoot
With his union still on strike Archie is stuck at home trying to keep entertained. Meanwhile as family funds dwindle Edith tries to get the family by on a budget.

The Bunkers and Inflation (3)/Edith the Job Hunter
With Archie still out of work Edith and Mike both search for jobs. When Edith finally gets hired by George Jefferson Archie refuses to take his charity.

The Bunkers and Inflation (4)/Archie's Raise
Archie becomes a homemaker when everyone is working but him and he is at home alone all day. Then the strike is called off when his union gets an increased wage, but is Archie really better off?

Lionel the Live-In
The Jeffersons have been having loud arguments keeping the Bunkers up at night.

Format: DVD
The fifth season of "All in the Family" was the one in which, in my estimation, the cast really hit its stride. It may be the best season of them all. It's hard to single out any one episode as the best, but here are a few of my favorites:

"Where's Archie?" and the following two episodes. This three-parter revolves around Archie's leaving for a lodge convention in Upstate New York and never arriving. Meanwhile, Mike and Gloria try to keep the news from Edith as long as possible. When she finds out at the end of the first episode, she bursts into tears. Meanwhile, Mike and Gloria go through a box of Archie's mementoes, figuring that they may contain a clue as to his whereabouts. From what they find, they conclude that Archie has run off with Mildred Turner, a young, attractive blonde who works in the office at the loading dock. This turns out to be a mistaken hypothesis, which becomes evident only after some memorably funny dialog with Ms. Turner. It also leaves the question unsolved as to Archie's whereabouts. Finally, Archie comes back at the end of the third episode, with an unbelievable story (but accurate, as it turns out) as to what happened to him.

"Archie and the Miracle." Archie "gets religion" after he escapes by inches being hit by a large falling object on the loading dock. He vows to attend church every Sunday and help out in the church where he can. Needless to say, his commitment quickly wanes, particularly when the pastor asks him to drive the bus for the elderly.

"The Jeffersons Move up." This is the episode where the Jeffersons move from the house next door to their luxury apartment in Manhattan and thus are officially spun off to their own show.

Format: DVD
"All In the Family" continued to be America's highest rated series in the fall of 1974 with over 20,000,000 viewers watching the Bunkers each week. The events that happened off-camera on "All In the Family" were just as exciting as any of the scripts as Carroll O'Connor walked off the series, demanding a substantial pay hike. After a well-publicized feud with producer and creator Norman Lear, O'Connor returned to the show becoming the highest-paid actor, at that point, in television history.

The fifth year began with a four-part episode entitled "The Bunkers and Inflation", which dealt with Archie being laid off from the dock plant and facing an unknown financial future. This is also the year the Jeffersons were spun off into their own weekly series. The pilot episode of "The Jeffersons" is included in this DVD set called "The Jeffersons Move On Up". There is also a wonderful retrospective show included called "The Best of "All In the Family"" hosted by Henry Fonda that features clips from some of the most popular episodes in the series' first four years. The final episode from season five (entitled "Mile Makes His Move") deals with Mike and Gloria moving into the Jefferson's old house next door. This plot twist enables the conflict to still exist between Archie and the Meathead for more seasons to come much to the chagrin of Mr. Bunker who thought Mike and Gloria were going to move since Mike finally graduated from college.

24 episodes are included in this set and like prvious releases no special features are included.

Sony has re-released this show in a regular dvd case with the 3 disc on top of each other. This is CHEAP and LAZY. Seek out the original packaging. It's pretty bad that a company -any company- tries to save money but at the same time sells something that will most likely be damaged or get damaged in a way they should have known before they manufactured it. LAZY and CHEAP.

all in the family. Where are seasons 7-8-9????????????...
Just in case you hadn't heard, All In The Family was being released by Sony who stopped releasing it at season 6.
