Editorial Reviews

By the fourth season, Norman Lear's landmark series ALL IN THE FAMILY was on its way to becoming an American institution. It consistently ranked number one in the ratings while at the same time breaking all of prime-time TV's taboos. Archie Bunker's (Carroll O'Connor) shocking politically incorrect diatribes, marriage problems for Mike (Rob Reiner) and Gloria (Sally Struthers), and a breast cancer scare for Edith (Jean Stapleton) all broke with sitcom conventions. In the fourth season, Archie hilariously faced two worthy opponents: neighbor Irene Lorenzo (Betty Garrett), a staunch believer in women's rights, and loud-mouthed George Jefferson (Sherman Hemsley), soon to star in the spin-off hit series "The Jeffersons." Rob Reiner won an Emmy® Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and the show received four other nominations this season.

Customer Reviews

It's bad that the season does not have subtitles, when is so important when you have deaf problems.

Should not this subtitles be a part of the standard procedures for the realeases ?

FINALLY, season 4 of All In The Family has been released! I don't understand why Columbia Home Video is waiting so long to get these out. Season 4 contains some of the best episodes yet. The antics of the Bunker household continue as Archie, Edith, Gloria and Mike bring taboo subjects and everyday issues into our homes. We also see the addition of three new characters, Betty Garret (Irene Lorenzo) Vincent Gardenia (Frank Lorenzo) and Sherman Hemsley as George Jefferson. Combined with the cast regulars, Season 4 makes for a huge non-stop laughfest. One of my favorite episodes is when Archie accidently locks himself in the cellar and gets smashed on Polish Vodka. In Archie's haste to make a will, he is so wasted that he thinks he's dying, and therefore believes that God is coming for him, which really turns out to be the oil delivery man--who is black! Plenty of other goodies in season 4 too. I'm finally glad to see these videos coming out on DVD. My old VHS copies are so worn out they barely play anymore. Thank you Columbia Home Video, but please don't wait so long getting these titles out. Thank-YOU to the cast of AITF for the many laughs and all the memories.

In the reality-based TV era, it's nice to be able to watch the classics on DVD. AITF took sitcoms to another level by using controversy, politics, and Americana and wrapping them in a funny package. AITF helps us to laugh and cry, but probably most importantly it helps us to reflect upon ourselves through real-life issues. Thanks again Columbia Tri-Star for putting this landmark series out on DVD. They are worth the wait!!!

Transfer is not great, but this series is a classic. Despite the lack of special features, this set is a must-have. Being able to watch the series develop from beginning to end is essential. The strength of AITF is in it's humorous spin on political and moral issues. The only reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is because of lack of attention to detail. The stories themselves sell this DVD box set. Personally, I can live without a bunch of extras as long as I get the uncut eps as they were aired. The Bunkers rule!!!

Yep the discs are complete. The person who posted his message warning that the last disc only had 6 episodes either dosen't know about the 3rd episode menu screen with epsidoes 23 & 24 or maybe he did get a bum set after all.

And yes the picture quality on this set is lousy. Disc 1 is the worst. My brother had VHS copies of this series that he made when the show was rerunning on cable and I keep telling him not to throw them out just because these DVDs are getting released. His tapes are just as good -- if not better sometimes -- than what Columbia House is selling us here.

I was going to get the Jeffersons season 3 that also came out the same day but maybe I won't now.

All in the Family's fourth season certainly gave us terrific entertainment; and even though the quality of the transfer to DVD isn't perfect I still recommend this for anyone who enjoys high quality control comedy. These episodes may have been filmed way back when but they're still every bit as hilarious now as they were then. Yes, some of the most biting shock value is gone but the jokes remain fresh and the poignant scenes (of which there were many) still standout as great theater. The fourth season comes in a three DVD box set with a list of the episodes along with a couple of sentences that tell you in general what each episode is about.

Although all the episodes are really very funny and occasionally quite moving, there are a few episodes that stick out in my mind as being particularly well done.

"Henry's Farewell" Henry Jefferson is moving away from the neighborhood and neither George nor Archie is willing to host an integrated farewell party in their homes for Henry. When the party finally goes underway at Archie's house, look for great comedy and some very touching moments. An outstanding episode.

"We're Having a Heat Wave" This is a two part episode that shows just how frustrated The Bunkers and The Stivics can get with each other when "the heat is on." This two part episode also introduces Irene and Frank Lorenzo (Betty Garrett and Vincent Gardenia) to The Bunkers; The Lorenzos eventually take the place of The Jeffersons who will move out of the neighborhood (and onto their own spin-off show).

"Archie and the Computer" Archie learns that he is dead--because of a hole punched into a computer card. Archie tells them to fill in the hole!
