All in the Family: Season 7
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
One of the most acclaimed comedy series of all time, Norman Lears Emmy-winning All In The Family returns for a seventh season with Archie (Carroll O Connor) still as irascible and highly opinionated as ever, arguing with his daughter Glorias (Sally Struthers) liberal husband Mike Meathead Stivic (Rob Reiner) and taking refuge in his long-suffering wife, Edith (Jean Stapleton).
Season Seven continued to break new ground in television with its lethal mix of comedy and serious issues. Whether the series was addressing Archies outdated, over-the-top, intolerant behavior or dealing with a college student trying to commit suicide, these characters made the formula work and the show unforgettable.

This wonderful set will come in three dics and feature all 23 episodes from the 1976-1977 season; two of those shows are hour long episodes. This was the year that many things happened to the Bunkers: Archie nearly had an affair on Edith; unemployment hits the Bunkers hard; Archie finds out he needs surgery; Gloria thinks she may be pregnant again; and Teresa moves in with the Bunkers. The sixth year also featured the best Christmas epsiode in "All In The Family's" history entitled "The Draft Dodger" where upon Archie discovers, at that Bunker's Holiday dinner, one of Mike's friends has moved to Canada to escape being drafted into the Vietnam War.
The following is a list of season 7 episodes along with their airdates:
1. "Archie's Brief Encounter-Part 1", Sept. 22, 1976
2. "Archie's Brief Encounter-Part 2", Sept. 29, 1976

ADDENDUM (November 2010)
Finally got my copy today. Contrary to some comments made by other reviewers, I found the DVD of great quality.
I am glad that Shout Factory took over the realease of the missing seasons. Can't wait for the release of seasons 8 and 9.
In my book, this is probably the best season of All in the Family.
I hope the Shout Factory takes on another controversial (although not as controversial) show, i.e., Maude. Maude was great, and if it were not for You Tube, we'd be robbed of many of the episodes. Also, I hope Shout Factory completes The Jeffersons.
Other than the issue of jerky video during movement, I would say the picture quality is good and sharp. When there is a closeup of Archie in his chair, for example, you can see the texture of the chair upholstery quite clearly. The brightness and contrast are good.
I have compared the Seventh Season to the Ninth Season, also released by Shout (I haven't viewed the Eighth Season yet), and the Ninth Season is far superior, not having the video jerkiness issue that the Seventh Season has. I would definitely consider this a defect in the current Seventh Season release and I believe Shout should correct the issue and release a new version.

We need to let Sony know that we have torches and pitchforks, and the will to use them.
