Product Description

Produced and developed by Norman Lear, the groundbreaking sitcom ALL IN THE FAMILYcontinued to evolve in the sixth season without losing any of its controversial edge or its popularity; it was the #1 series for the fifth year in a row. Mike (Rob Reiner) and Gloria (Sally Struthers) finally move out of the Bunker household - and right into the house next door, where the Jeffersons used to live. But the big news for Archie (Carroll O'Connor) and Edith (Jean Stapleton) is that their "little goil" is pregnant. Gloria later gives birth in a special two-part episode. Once the baby is home, two generations of parents clash over how to raise little Joey Stivic. The show courted further controversy when a real toy company released "Archie Bunker's Grandson" in honor of baby Joey, the first anatomically correct male doll! Nominated for an Emmy® Award for "Outstanding Comedy Series" for its sixth straight year, ALL IN THE FAMILY was also nominated for two Golden Globe® Awards this season. With

The more things change, the more they stay the same? When it comes to All in the Family, the answer is an unqualified yes… and no. Considering the show's tremendous popularity (this sixth season, spanning 1975 and '76, was the fifth straight year it held down the top spot in the Nielsen ratings), creator-producer Norman Lear was unlikely to make any drastic adjustments to the basic formula. And sure enough, in these 24 episodes (on three discs, sans bonus features), the four main characters--Archie Bunker (Carroll O'Connor, brilliant as ever), ditzy wife Edith (Jean Stapleton), daughter Gloria (Sally Struthers), and contentious son-in-law Mike Stivic (Rob Reiner)--and their relationships remain the obvious focal point. What's more, while it's true that various new developments, including Mike and Gloria's move next door (to the house once occupied by the Jeffersons), her pregnancy, and the birth of little Joey, are more than cosmetic and account for the lion's share of the storylines, All in the Family's basic dynamic remains one of the strongest and most instantly recognizable in TV sitcom history. Ditto the writers' penchant for the trenchant; social issues include tolerance and homophobia (Archie saves a woman's life with "mouth-to-mouth restitution," only to discover that "she" is a transvestite), women's rights (Gloria gets fired for being pregnant), vigilantism (Archie fends off a mugger with illegal tear gas), religion (Archie wants his grandson baptized and raised as a Christian, but Mike has other ideas), and so on. And now more than ever, some of the language will seem a little shocking, as Archie regularly uses a variant of the gay slur that got Grey's Anatomy cast member Isaiah Washington in very hot water more than three decades later.

Some changes, however, are a little more profound. The kinder, gentler Archie who began to appear a few seasons back is more in effect now; an extended and largely improvised scene in which he coddles his infant grandson is surprisingly tender, and when he hugs Mike after Joey is born, longtime viewers might wonder if what on earth has happened to TV's most unrepentant, close-minded bigot. But hey, even cavemen evolved, and the Archie Bunker we see in Season 6 bears an increasing resemblance to a character he most surely inspired, one who usually ends up removing his foot from his mouth long enough to do the right thing: Homer Simpson. --Sam Graham

The rate at which these seasons are being released is so pitifully slow it detracts from ones enjoyment of the series. It took 5 years to get to season 6, and there are still 3 seasons to go, not to mention 3 additional seasons of Archie Bunker's place which have yet to be released. Let's go with the remaining seasons so I can enjoy them before I retire!

This is beyond ridiculous at this point. Millions of fans have anxiously awaited the release of these DVDs. What is the hold up?! Is Sony not planning on releasing the rest of the series?! Why release 6 seasons and stop there? Is Sony prepared to refund customers who paid good money for half of a series? I know that I did not start collecting these DVDs just to be left with an incomplete set. There isn't even any talk about a future release date, no news at all. What IS the problem? I think this is a digrace and I'm pretty much done with Sony. Customer satisfaction is obviously not a priority.

NBC loves to hang the moniker "greatest ____ ever" on its TV shows as if saying so makes it so. First, The Cosby Show was the greatest sitcom ever, then Seinfeld, then Friends. Of course, according to NBC, ER is the greatest program in the history of television, so we all have to discuss comedy programs in and of themselves. If NBC spent nearly as much time creating good new shows as it does in shamelessly overhyping their old shows, they probably would still be ahead of CBS in the ratings.

For my money, no sitcom will ever top the great All in the Family in any respect -- acting, writing and overall influence. To get an idea of what dire straits TV comedy was in before All in the Family, take a look at an episode of one of the other sitcoms that was on the air at the time: Family Affair, The Brady Bunch, the last, sad days of Bewitched, The Beverly Hillbillies. The country had grown up, but television sitcoms had stayed rooted in the same dated themes of the 1950's and 1960's: either sterilized white bread families or gimmicky hocus pocus that took the place of the quality writing of classics like I Love Lucy, The Honeymooners and The Dick Van Dyke Show. Subjects like Vietnam, flower children, drugs, poverty, racism, homosexuality and rape were taboos.

Enter Archie, Edith, Mike and Gloria who dealt with all those issues and more head on in every episode. While Carol Brady scolded her children for saying the word "stinker," Archie Bunker held a lengthy dissertation on the phrase "god damn it." While Samantha Stevens was still dealing with her wacky witch and morlock relatives, the Bunkers were coming face to face with a transsexual.

The 1975-76 season,the sixth of All In The Family,begins with Gloria Bunker Stivic(Sally Struthers) and her "Meathead" husband Michael(Rob Reiner) "movin' on up" to a place of their own in their former next-door-neighbors' home,occupied by George,Louise and Lionel Jefferson who had moved to a "dee-luxe apartment in the sky" in Manhattan(George's brother Henry even lived with them for a while). Another major highlight is Gloria giving birth to her and Michael's son Joey. I incorrectly mentioned this in the review for the season 5 set. Gloria's father Archie(the late great Carroll O'Connor),coming from a minstrel show in blackface,and her mother Edith(Jean Stapleton) arrive at the hospital in time to meet their new grandson. Archie accidentally entered a room occupied by a female patient who had long blonde hair like Gloria. The horrified woman phoned for help("There's a big fat black man in here!"). Also there's one episode where Edith was upset with Archie because he hardly romances her and takes her anywhere anymore like he did when they were dating. So she goes to "where the action is". That place is Kelsey's Bar,the neighborhood pub in the Bunkers' and Stivics' hometown of Queens. Archie had been laid off from his job as a loading dock foreman and invites a Hispanic woman named Teresa Betancourt(Liz Torres,recurringly) to rent one of the bedrooms in the Bunker home(Gloria and Mike previously slept in that bedroom,she also used it as a growing-up child) for income. I also mentioned incorrectly in the season 5 set that Archie has his own chair in the Stivics' home like he has in his own house.Read more ›

Hooray! It had been almost a year since Season Five was released, with no sign of Season Six on the horizon...until now! I'm giving this title a five-star rating despite the fact that I know it will be plagued with picture imperfections and will almost certainly contain no extras. Why? Because this release, despite those minor frustrations, will afford me the opportunity to view yet another season of this classic show in the original CBS broadcast versions, as opposed to the horrendously butchered reruns shown on TV Land!

It's getting exciting now, since we're getting closer to the end. With each additional season, the chances of getting the rest of the show released keep getting better and better. Please be sure to support this season, as doing so will let Sony Home Entertainment know that we want ALL of the seasons on DVD!

I was justing watching "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and I kept starring at this woman who kept reminding me of someone I couldn't place. I finally googled the movie to figure out who she was and only when I saw her name did I think the very same thing! She is a dead ringer for Brad... Read More
