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

Customer Reviews

If you were a fan of the show, as my family was, back in the 70s... you'll love reliving each episode.
Robert E. Tacy Jr.
And even beyond the comedic value of which there is much, there are almost as many moments of pure poetry - this show knew how to say something even beyond its comedy.
Green Manalishi
The new snapcase sets aren't as nice as the original Sony digipaks but since Sony completely abandoned this property it's great that Shout!

...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.

All right! I've been waiting a LONG time for this one. This is the season where George and Louise Jefferson will "move on up" to the dee-luxe apartment in the sky. Those of us who were only 2-1/2 years old when this episode originally aired will now be afforded the opportunity to see it in it's original CBS broadcast entirety! Of course, the pilot for "The Jeffersons" is not at all the only good thing that you will get if you buy this season. "All in the Family" was still in fine form at this point with all original players intact, fussing and fighting their way through all kinds of situations and keeping you well entertained for hours upon hours!

Hopefully the glitches that plagued the Season 4 set will not be present here, but if they are bear in mind that videotape does NOT age well. With or without the minor imperfections, we should just be grateful to get our hands on this uncut TV classic in a format that will not deteriorate any further than it already has. It definitely beats the hacked-to-pieces versions that TV Land airs! It's nothing short of shameful how much of the show has been removed over the years to make room for so many more commercials than it was meant for! Supporting these box sets will give the studio faith to keep them coming, and eventually those heavily edited syndicated versions will be made obsolete.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It's the 1974/75 TV season, Nixon is finally out of office (hello Gerald Ford), gas and food prices are still sky high, and Norman Lear dominates half the Top 10 of the TV ratings: at #9 is Maude, at #7 Good Times, which knocked ABC's Happy Days out of the Top 30 for the season, #4 is The Jeffersons, the second spin-off from All In The Family, #2 Sanford and Son and #1 (for the fourth season in a row), All In The Family.

1. The Bunkers and Inflation, Part One (14/9/74): It's Archie and Edith's 26th wedding anniversary, and Archie's union goes on strike... 10/10

2. The Bunkers and Inflation, Part Two (21/9/74): Archie is still on strike, and when he's not picketing, he's at home, getting in Edith's way. 7.5/10

3. The Bunkers and Inflation, Part Three (28/9/74): Archie is STILL on strike, and Edith and Mike end up getting jobs, Edith's being at a certain drycleaners... 9.5/10

4. The Bunkers and Inflation, Part Four (5/10/74): Archie's union finally resolves the strike, but with Archie being in an even worse position. 9.5/10

5. Lionel the Live-In (12/10/74): After a high-decibel late night argument with his father over his girlfriend, Lionel temporarily moves into the Bunker house. 10/10

6. Archie's Helping Hand (19/10/74): Archie gets Irene a job at his plant, not knowing it's one with him... 9/10

7. Gloria's Shock (26/10/74): Mike announces to Gloria that he doesn't want to have any children, shocking and angering Gloria. 9.5/10

8. Where's Archie?, Part One (2/11/74): While Edith is hosting a Tupperware party, Archie hasn't called from Buffalo, meaning he didn't make it to his lodge convention... 6/10.

9. Where's Archie?

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. Now the rights to distribute the series have been handed over to Shout Factory I believe, who will hopefully be releasing the final three seasons as well as the remaining unreleased... Read More
