Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Those were the days...and they still are. Norman Lear's landmark Emmy® Award-winning comedy about the Bunkers, one of the most beloved families in television history, continues with this second season. Filled with more hysterical episodes including "Sammy's Visit" featuring Sammy Davis, Jr. Starring Carroll O'Connor as Archie, Jean Stapleton as Edith, Rob Reiner as Mike "Meathead" Stivic and Sally Struthers as Gloria, ALL IN THE FAMILY is a timeless classic to cherish forever.

Amazon.com

With a new time slot (8:00 p.m. Saturdays) and three first-season Emmys®, All in the Family was primed for greatness, and these 24 episodes represent the series at its best. Carroll O'Connor leads the perfect cast as blue-collar bigot Archie Bunker, and the standout classic is "Sammy's Visit," in which black, Jewish rat-packer Sammy Davis Jr. visits the Bunker home, where he's hilariously horrified by Archie's prejudicial ignorance. The script was written by comedian Bill ("José Jiminez") Dana, and to borrow Archie's phrase, it's a pip, as Sammy turns Archie's racist remarks on their ear to the delight of young liberals Gloria (Sally Struthers) and husband Mike (Rob Reiner). Sammy's parting kiss on Archie's cheek is one of the series' all-time highlights. Then there's Burt Styler's Emmy-winning script for "Edith's Problem," in which Archie's "Dingbat" wife experiences the mood swings of menopause (another first, along with impotence in "Mike's Problem," in the series' taboo-busting candor). A showcase for Jean Stapleton (who deservedly won her second consecutive Emmy), it also demonstrates (as does "Archie and Edith Alone") the hurtful repercussions of Archie's unintentional cruelty. Edith's Archie-baiting cousin Maude (Bea Arthur) is introduced ("Maude" is a pilot for the character's spin-off sitcom, which premiered in '72), and credit must be given to John Rich, who directed all 24 episodes (winning an Emmy for "Sammy's Visit") with a flawless sense of ensemble chemistry, precision timing, and lasting political relevance. This season earned seven Emmys overall, including awards for O'Connor and Struthers. Given such a wealth of sitcom glory, it's a shame these DVDs are devoid of retrospective features. --Jeff Shannon

The DVD quality is excellent, very clear.
Michael Mitlitsky
Everyone has met someone like this in their life and why not let humor take over this situation.

At last, Season Two of "All in the Family," arguably the best comedy series ever made, is coming to DVD! Here are the episodes from season two, as they were aired and in the order they should be on on DVD:
#1 The Saga of Cousin Oscar -- Archie is incensed when his sponging cousin Oscar has the nerve to drop dead in the upstairs bedroom.
#2 Gloria Poses in the Nude -- Mike has second thoughts after he agrees to let Gloria pose as a nude model for one of his artist friends (David Soul).
#3 Archie in the Lock-Up -- Archie suffers his ultimate indignity when he's arrested along with a group of radicals at a protest rally.
#4 Edith Writes a Song -- SOOOO funny!! A pair of burglars (Cleavon Little and Demond Wilson, who would go on to be Lamont in "Sanford and Son") holds the family at bay with Archie's own pistol.
#5 Flashback: Mike Meets Archie -- On the Stivics' first wedding anniversary, the family recalls the day Archie and Michael met.
#6 The Election Story -- Mike and Gloria campaign for the liberal candidate in a local election, while Archie places himself in the opposing camp.
#7 Edith's Accident -- A priest pays a call to reward Edith's honesty for leaving a note on his car after she accidentally dents it with a large can of cling peaches.
#8 The Blockbuster -- An unscrupulous black real-estate salesman tempts Archie to sell his house to a black family at an inflated price.
#9 Mike's Problem -- Gloria is upset when Mike's nervousness over his grades causes him to become temporarily impotent.
#10 The Insurance Is Canceled -- Archie lays off a Puerto Rican worker during a cutback at the dock; and his homeowner's policy is canceled when his neighborhood is redlined as a bad risk.

All things considered, the Second Season of "All in the Family" ends up being the best year of the classic situation comedy that gave birth to the Relevance Era of prime-time television programming. After all, the show was originally a mid-season replacement and there were only 13 episodes that first season. In 1971-72 "All in the Family" was the top-rated program on television, earning a 34.0 Nielsen rating, and winning second consecutive Emmy awards for Outstanding Series: Comedy and Outstanding Continued Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Comedy Series: Jean Stapleton, as well as Carroll O'Connor's first Emmy for acting, one for Sally Strothers in her supporting role, and the awards for Directing (John Rich for "Sammy's Visit") and Writing (Burt Styler for "Edith's Problem"). Poor Rob Reiner, the forgotten figure in the ensemble (as if being Carl Reiner's son was not enough of an onus).
The second season continues to provide the ranting and raving of Archie Bunker, but it is the entire family that emerges in these two dozen episodes as we get beyond Archie arguing with Mike, telling Edith to stifle, and Gloria to stop crying . There are also the show's most notable guest stars in terms of Sammy Davis, Jr., David Soul, Cleavon Little, Beatrice Arthur, and, in one episode ("The Elevator Story," January 1, 1972) Roscoe Lee Brown, Eileen Brennan, and Hector Elizondo. Clearly this was the hottest show on television and the entire idea of Archie driving a cab part-time was used mainly to set up an excuse for Archie Bunker to meet Sammy Davis, Jr.

I have to give this set a split review. To do otherwise would be unfair.
First the material itself:
All In The Family, as you probably already know, was one of the greatest television shows ever. With simple architypal characters, the producers give us a lens to focus in on issues of the day.
The shows themselves are funny. Carroll O'Connor was a top rate performer (I find it really interesting that he was an English teacher before he went on to butcher the language as Archie). Jean Stapleton, Rob Reiner and Sally Struthers are perfect as supporting characters.
This season received seven Emmy awards, including awards for O'Connor and Stapleton. Classic episodes in this season include apparences by Edith's cousin Maude (Beatrice Arthur) and others. Classic bits include Edith's accident with a can of cling peaches in heavy syrup, Archie appearing on Walter Cronkite's newscast only to find out that his television set is busted (and his pleading with an Orthodox Jewish television repairman to fix the set even though it's a Friday night and he can't work because it's the Sabbath!), Archie getting stuck in an elevator with an African-American and a Hispanic couple (who's wife is about to give birth in the elevator) and Edith's going through menopause. This was the season that really put All in the Family on the televison map.
Now the bad news.
First of all, there are no extras at all. But that's not so bad. The season sets of M*A*S*H have no extras too, but I can live with that. But at least the season sets of M*A*S*H have chapter stops in the episodes. In the AITF set, however, there are no stops at all (not even for the opening and closing credits). If you want to go to a specific spot in the episode, you have to fast forward all the way there.
