Editorial Reviews

All 208 Original Episodes


Few television shows have left as substantial and enduring a footprint on American popular culture as Norman Lear’s masterpiece All In The Family. This groundbreaking comedy series looked at the state of the world through the eyes of an argumentative but loving family and gave us some of the most fully dimensional characters in television history. The jokes had a million targets, aiming at race, politics, sex and human foibles, but the humor was firmly rooted in the characters of Archie, Edith, Mike and Gloria.

This complete series set is a long-overdue celebration of the enormously influential program and offers fans a collection to treasure for years to come. Includes a new interview with Norman Lear, documentaries, original pilots, a 40 page collectible book with essays by television critic Tom Shales and media professor Marty Kaplan and more!

I am heartbroken that Jean Stapleton passed away yesterday; I was dreading the day when I would have to read about it in the news. Stapleton, as is the case with all the other actors in All in the Family, performed brilliantly and delivered a type of comedy that was groundbreaking and not afraid to thumb its nose at conventional wisdom about what could be seen on TV. Of course, look for Carroll O'Connor as the unforgettable Archie Bunker who, despite his obvious bigotry, gradually developed into a loving and caring man who had more compassion in his heart than we initially thought--great character development! Rob Reiner played Michael "Meathead" Stivic who was married to their Bunkers' daughter Gloria played by Sally Struthers. In addition, all through these DVDs the quality of the sound and the image is really quite good. The sight gags and laughs still hold up, too.

There are many wonderful episodes of All in the Family, so many that it's practically impossible for me to pick just one and call it my favorite! I will never forget the episode in which Sammy Davis, Jr. comes to visit the Bunker household to retrieve his briefcase after losing it in Archie's taxi cab; this episode couldn't have been done any better and the very last second or two showed a gag Davis played on the whole crew without any advance notice! The way the audience roared proved again this was a special television sitcom far above the ordinary in terms of quality. Other fantastic episodes that come to mind at an instant include the one in which Edith's cousin Maude (Beatrice Arthur) comes to visit when Edith and the rest of the family are ill; the time when a computer (!

5.0 out of 5 stars WORTH EVERY DOLLAR!!! November 2, 2012
Format:DVD
This DVD set is better than I even thought it would be! Besides all the episodes are the fantastic bonus items! Norman Lear's interview is really well done and provides lots of insight into the show and stars. My favorite is all of the pilot episodes, including the two ABC pilots in their entirety!! "And Justice For All" and "Those Were The Days" each had different actors playing the Mike (Dickie in these pilots) and Gloria roles! In addition are the pilots for "Gloria", "Archie Bunker's Place" and "704 Hauser Street". This is a lot of great exclusive material! Great picture quality too! I cannot say enough good things about the complete DVD set! Worth the money!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Arguably TV's All-Time Top Sitcom October 5, 2012
By Alex S
Format:DVD
NOTE: I am a TV on DVD reviewer and am basing this review on the actual advance set that I received, rather than speculation regarding its content. This review is from my site, which is at classictvdvdreviews.blogspot.com.

I would also like to say that I understand that many people bought the individual seasons and are now upset about having to buy the complete series set to get the exceptional extras. I have been in that boat many times.

My first reaction is to say "Stifle Dingbat." My second reaction is to recommend giving your current sets to friends and relatives, selling them at used DVD store, or just deciding if the extras are worth having a duplicate set of the episodes.

Shout Factory's awesome track record with complete series DVD sets of classic shows continues with its above-average even for Shout collection of every episode from "All in the Family's" nine seasons.

Aside from the terrific accompanying booklet and special features that are discussed below, the DVD set earns an A+ for including the original broadcast versions of the episodes.

The syndicated episodes always seemed oddly short and missing something. I also did not understand why I liked the DVD episodes so much better than the TV Land presentations until learning that the syndicated versions cut between four and five minutes from the original broadcasts. Well done Shout!

The premise of "Family" is highly original and has not been repeated since its mid-season 1971 premiere. It centers around the Queens, NY home that blue-collar working stiff Archie Bunker, played by Carroll O'Connor, shares with his textbook adoring and long-suffering wife with a breaking point Edith, played by Jean Stapleton.

5.0 out of 5 stars best sitcom ever. December 25, 2012
Format:DVD
just ordered the complete series today for 94 bucks. pays to check amazon everyday.
i loved the series but thought it lingered longer than it should.
i think the series should have ended the year after gloria and mike left for california.
non the less, it's worth revisiting the bunkers when they were all just one happy all in the family.

5.0 out of 5 stars All In the family Series December 15, 2012
By SGBaker
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Being sometimes compared to Archie in my attitude towards my female friends, I can relate to this series. I loved it when I watched it live and this just brings back fond memories of a younger me. I do not wish to sound like an antique person but this was an era where entertainment was targeted for the open minded and non-biased viewers. Love these so far.

I really want to order this, but ...
Well I bought it when it first went up for preorder and got it for $139.99. So I expect if you wait the price may get down as you say around Black Friday.

Leave it to Amazon to jack up the price right after Jean Stapelton dies.
When James Gandolfini died, my Sopranos box set went down $40 dollars. Amazon regularly matches prices to what other online retailers sell for, if theirs goes up, so does Amazon. I'm no expert... Just a thought

Seasons 1-6 Remastered?
Of course they will not. They don't own the rights to the first six seasons, only seasons 7-9. No reason to waste your money.
