Format: DVD
Debuting as a mid-season replacement series on January 12, 1971, All in the Family became one of the most influential comedies in TV history and made an immediate impact on the entire television industry. The sitcom revolves around blue-collar worker Archie Bunker (played by the beloved Carroll O'Connor) and his family. A bigot, Archie makes no bones about his racial and political views. His wife Edith, who he refers to as Dingbat, is ditzy, but her sweetness and good heart provide a perfect balance for the harsh character of Archie. Also residing in the Bunker house is Archie's daughter Gloria and her husband Michael. Some of the greatest commentary and comedic moments come from the verbal sparring between the narrow-minded Archie and the thoughtful, liberal Meathead.
In this collection, you'll be getting the following episodes:

1. "Meet The Bunkers"- It's Archie and Edith's wedding anniversary, so Gloria and Mike try to whip up a party atmosphere for them.
2. "Writing the President"- Upon learning that Mike has written a letter of criticism to President Nixon, Archie becomes so upset that he writes a letter of his own in praise of Nixon.
3. "Oh, My Aching Back"- Archie tries to sue for whiplash after a minor auto accident and seeks out a Jewish lawyer to fight the case for him.
4. "Archie Gives Blood"- Archie becomes a blood donor, but he insists on knowing who the blood will be going to because his theory is "black blood" is different from "white blood."
5. "Judging Books By Covers"- Archie ridicules one of Mike and Gloria's friends for being gay.
6. "Gloria's Pregnancy"- Archie goes through the ceiling when he finds out that Gloria is going to have a baby and Mike has no means of supporting the child.

Let me say if I were to review the comedy alone contained within, this gets 6 stars, however this is a boxset and factoring that in, this is dismal. Every mistake in the book is here as far as how NOT to bring a classic series to dvd.
No Chapter Skips? Check.
No pilot? Check.
Poor transfer? Check.
Flimsy, awkward, (though nice looking) packaging? Check.
No remastered sound? Check.
No extras? Check.
I have a majority of these on the official Columbia House VHS series, and somehow the picture on those tends to be marginally better. Who woulda thought you could mess up perfection? The picture is sort of fuzzy, and every now and again you can see some digital imperfection. I am satisfied with the set because it is a space saver, but thats about it (other than the obvious quality of the perfomances). Why even take the time to bring these to dvd, then cut every corner in the book? Will I buy season 2? You betcha.

What a treat to have all of these famous Archie-isms now on DVD. Carroll O'Connor's Archie Bunker shall live forever as one of the finest characters ever created for the small screen. Always controversial, but always well-written, was the character of Archibald Bunker of 704 Houser Street in Queens.
These 13 first-season episodes of "All In The Family" (as well as nearly the entire batch of episodes contained in the Season Two follow-up DVD boxed set) are some of my favorites of the entire series (which ran for all or part of nine seasons, from January 1971 to April 1979).
The debut episode, which probably had the show's creators on pins and needles when it first aired, is a fabulous premiere program for Archie and his gang. Take note how Edith, in show #1, isn't quite the totally dominated housewife that she'd become in later episodes. She holds her own a few times with her hubby in the "Meet The Bunkers" debut. Such as her jab at Archie about the church service they just attended: "Mister religion here wasn't quite seeing eye to eye with the sermon". :)
You'll get to see the entire "epilogue" sequences for each program on these DVDs as well, rather than the usual trimmed-down-for-more-commercials versions that are likely to be shown on broadcast TV.
Other first-rate Season One episodic Archie adventures include such Classics as "Lionel Moves Into The Neighborhood" (which features the burst-out-loud hilarious "Watermelon Rinds" Archie-ism!); "Edith Has Jury Duty"; and "Archie Gives Blood".
The picture quality is, sadly, not very good on this set of DVDs. Not much better, if any, than VHS quality. Many scenes are downright blurry; and might have you rubbing your eyes.

When "All in the Family" premiered on CBS on January 12, 1971, "TV Guide" introduced it as "A Lighthearted Look at Prejudice," warning viewers "Situation comedy takes a giant step with this adult social satire." In retrospect, even that declaration is an incredible understatement. Other than the "Texaco Star Theater," which made Milton Berle "Mr. Television" and sold millions of television sets, there is not another show in the history of television as significant as "All in the Family." Before its abbreviated first season there were "idiot" situation comedies like "The Beverly Hillbillies," "Hogan's Heroes," and "My Mother the Car." After "All in the Family" came relevant shows like "Maude," "The Jeffersons," and "M*A*S*H" and nobody doubts that it was AITF that changed the rules of the game.
Produced by Norman Lear and Bud Yorkin, "All in the Family" was based on the British series "Till Death Do Us Part." The family in question were the Bunkers, which consisted of bigoted Archie Bunker (Carroll O'Connor), his kindly "dingbat" wife, Edith (Jean Stapleton), their naively idealistic daughter, Gloria (Sally Struthers), and her husband, Michael Stivic (Rob Reiner), an argumentative liberal "meathead" who sorely tries Archie's deeply conservative soul. Archie Bunker was unlike anything ever seen on television: he held every negative racial or ethic stereotype in the book and used slurs never before heard on television. But the series also dealt with serious issues. "All in the Family" is the only television series in history to finish 1st in the Nielsen's five years running and all four stars won multiple Emmys in their respective acting categories.
