Editorial Reviews

Season Nine finds Mike and Gloria officially moved out, leaving Archie and Edith on their own for the first time in a long while. Of course, that doesn’t last long when Edith’80s cousin Floyd abandons his nine-year-old daughter Stephanie (Danielle Brisebois) on their doorstep. But, as the Bunkers have grown accustomed to doing, they make the best, and funniest, situation out of terrible circumstances and take her in. Meanwhile, it turns out the Stivics are on the rocks in California when Edith and Archie decide to pay a cross-country visit for Christmas.

For this final season, Norman Lear hosted an endearing 90-minute Family Retrospective that allowed fans of the show to look back and relive the greatest moments of the groundbreaking series. The special originally aired during the Season Nine run and is included in this DVD set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hello Danielle! September 27, 2007
This ninth and final season of CBS's legendary All In The Family is very much different than the previous ones. Danielle Brisebois(briz bwah) joins remaining original cast members the late Carroll O'Connor and Jean Stapleton as Stephanie Mills,a distant niece of Edith Bunker's(Stapleton) who had been abandoned by her widowed alcoholic father. Brisebois was brought in to fill the vacancies left by other original AITF cast members Rob Reiner and Sally Struthers who had departed in early 1978. Again,there's a new version of Archie(O'Connor) and Edith performing THOSE WERE THE DAYS by Lee Adams and Charles Strouse and a new version of the instrumental REMEMBERING YOU by O'Connor and Roger Kellaway. Also,O'Connor delivers his own closing announcement,"All In The Family was played to a studio audience for live responses." This is because unlike the previous seasons,there was no audience present while filming. Pre-recorded audience reactions were added to these episodes. This season premiered on September 24,1978 and a distant cousin brings Stephanie to the Bunkers' Queens,New York household. Archie and Edith even locate Stephanie's father(guest star Ben Slack) at a motel where he is staying. To avoid certain heartbreak,Edith books a flight for herself and Archie to California to spend Christmas with their daughter Gloria Bunker Stivic(special guest star Struthers) and her husband Michael(special guest star Reiner). Michael,enjoying his job as a college professor is separated from Gloria but they reunite at their Santa Barbara,CA apartment for 5 days for the sake of her parents. The Stivics were unable to come to New York since Mike was "hurting"(he was actually faking a bad back and claims he hurt it by lifting a heavy hibachi). Read more ›

The ninth and (sniff) final season of All in the Family is finally being released on DVD by SHOUT! Factory. Thank you so much Shout! for picking up the pieces after Sony left the release of this series in shambles. I certainly hope you obtain the rights to Archie Bunker's Place, not as classic as AITF but still a fun series and many people would love seasons two, three and four on DVD

After "little goil" and "meathead" left for California at the end of last season this season finds Archie and Edith starting out alone. Soon enough, in the first episode as a matter of fact, Danielle Brisebois joins the cast as Stephanie and adds a fun dynamic by giving us a look at Archie and Edith as parents of a young child (I always watch these episodes and think of them as a look back on what it might have been like for Gloria growing up, despite Archie having mellowed considerably since then). After a truly great eighth season, though one with many multipart arcs, the final season switches back to more of a one topic per episode format with the exception of the spectacular Christmas episode.

This final season contains the following 24 episodes (27 if you count the restrospective):

Little Miss Bunker (9/24/1978)
Edith's cousin Floyd abandon's his nine year old daughter Stephanie on the bunker's doorstep.

End in Sight (10/1/1978)
Archie wallows in self-pity after an ominous spout is found on his liver during an insurance physical.

Reunion on Hauser Street (10/8/1978)
The Bunker's try to reunite Barney Hefner with his wife Blanche.

What'll We Do with Stephanie? (10/15/1978)
When Floyd fails to pick Stephanie up as promised the Bunkers debate keeping her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks Shout Factory !!!!! May 17, 2011
Thank you Shout Factory for making "All In The Family" season nine available.When Sony dropped the ball after making only seasons 1-6 available,Shout Factory came to the rescue and made the remaining seasons 7-9 available to all fans of the series to complete their full series collections.I now own the complete series.I received my copy of season 9 yesterday,and could'nt be happier.The first 6 seasons released by Sony have always had a video quality somewhat dark and soft.The Shout Factory releases are bright,sharp,crisp and clear.The packaging,video and audio quality,and price of the set are all great.What more could you ask for ?.I miss Gloria and Mike Stivic in season 9,although Stephanie (Danielle Brisebois),brings a fresh face to the cast.Now at long last,fans of this classic series can own the entire series.If you love this great show,buy it now,you simply can't go wrong.

3.0 out of 5 stars Coasting To The Finish May 29, 2011
The ninth and ultimately final season of All In The Family is sort of a conundrum. On one hand, the entire season is weak compared to earlier efforts. However, at the same time, by this point in the show the main characters (Archie & Edith) are so well-developed that just their presence alone is often enough to carry episodes.

The main problem with Season Nine is the absence of Mike ("Meathead") & Gloria Stivic, now gone to California with grandson Joey. Both characters only appear in one special Christmas episode. Thus, long gone are the staple Michael/Archie arguments that comprised the bulk of the show's humor.

As a result, this season is as much (if not more) a drama than a comedy. The inclusion of little Stephanie adds some heartfelt moments, while Archie is given more of a "heart" than ever before. I really have to give credit to show creator Norman Lear in this respect. He knew that comedy is fleeting, so he slowly transformed AITF into more of a dramatic program that really allowed it to survive for 3-4 decent seasons once the gut-busting had run dry.

It is a little disappointing that this wonderful show wasn't given the send-off it deserved. The final scene is touching, but that whole episode should have been an AITF celebration, not a stand-alone plot.

Overall, this is a decent season that does add some significant wrinkles to the show and its history. Clearly, the writers were in uncharted territory with the major casting changes, but they still managed to coast to a pretty good final season. Enough so that the sequel "Archie Bunker's Place" actually seems like a decent proposition for viewing.
