Editorial Reviews

The fifth season of ALL IN THE FAMILY continued its trailblazing formula, tackling controversial issues with shockingly irreverent humor. Number one in the ratings for the fifth straight year, audiences now felt as comfortable in the Bunkers' living room as they did in their own. But this would be a year of change for Archie (Carroll O'Connor) and Edith (Jean Stapleton), with friends moving on up and family moving out. Like the rest of the country, the Bunkers cope with rising inflation (in a multi-episode storyline), causing Edith to join the workforce. Meanwhile, next-door neighbors the Jeffersons leave their modest Queens house for a "deluxe apartment in the sky;" the pilot for the spin-off series "The Jeffersons" appears here as an episode of ALL IN THE FAMILY. By the end of the season, Mike (Rob Reiner) and Gloria (Sally Struthers) decide it's high time to move out of Archie's house to find their own place to live. Winner of a Golden Globe® award, the fifth season also

...the days of inflation and strikes, Lionel moving in, Archie going missing, the series' hundredth episode retrospective, "fair fighting", stealing from the workplace, the Jeffersons moving up and Mike finally graduating and he and Gloria making a move of their own. A nice season that still showcases some of the best comedy ever seen on sitcom television. In the fifth season the show was still a fan favorite, riding the wave of popularity it had established in the first season and built heavily on since the critically acclaimed second.

The fifth season contains the following 24 episodes:

The Bunkers and Inflation
Archie and Edith's 26th wedding anniversary coincides with worry that Archie's union will go on strike. Archie and Edith both learn of the strike separately and try to keep it from each other and their party guests.

The Bunkers and Inflation (2)/Archie Underfoot
With his union still on strike Archie is stuck at home trying to keep entertained. Meanwhile as family funds dwindle Edith tries to get the family by on a budget.

The Bunkers and Inflation (3)/Edith the Job Hunter
With Archie still out of work Edith and Mike both search for jobs. When Edith finally gets hired by George Jefferson Archie refuses to take his charity.

The Bunkers and Inflation (4)/Archie's Raise
Archie becomes a homemaker when everyone is working but him and he is at home alone all day. Then the strike is called off when his union gets an increased wage, but is Archie really better off?

Lionel the Live-In
The Jeffersons have been having loud arguments keeping the Bunkers up at night.

All right! I've been waiting a LONG time for this one. This is the season where George and Louise Jefferson will "move on up" to the dee-luxe apartment in the sky. Those of us who were only 2-1/2 years old when this episode originally aired will now be afforded the opportunity to see it in it's original CBS broadcast entirety! Of course, the pilot for "The Jeffersons" is not at all the only good thing that you will get if you buy this season. "All in the Family" was still in fine form at this point with all original players intact, fussing and fighting their way through all kinds of situations and keeping you well entertained for hours upon hours!

Hopefully the glitches that plagued the Season 4 set will not be present here, but if they are bear in mind that videotape does NOT age well. With or without the minor imperfections, we should just be grateful to get our hands on this uncut TV classic in a format that will not deteriorate any further than it already has. It definitely beats the hacked-to-pieces versions that TV Land airs! It's nothing short of shameful how much of the show has been removed over the years to make room for so many more commercials than it was meant for! Supporting these box sets will give the studio faith to keep them coming, and eventually those heavily edited syndicated versions will be made obsolete.

It's the 1974/75 TV season, Nixon is finally out of office (hello Gerald Ford), gas and food prices are still sky high, and Norman Lear dominates half the Top 10 of the TV ratings: at #9 is Maude, at #7 Good Times, which knocked ABC's Happy Days out of the Top 30 for the season, #4 is The Jeffersons, the second spin-off from All In The Family, #2 Sanford and Son and #1 (for the fourth season in a row), All In The Family.

1. The Bunkers and Inflation, Part One (14/9/74): It's Archie and Edith's 26th wedding anniversary, and Archie's union goes on strike... 10/10

2. The Bunkers and Inflation, Part Two (21/9/74): Archie is still on strike, and when he's not picketing, he's at home, getting in Edith's way. 7.5/10

3. The Bunkers and Inflation, Part Three (28/9/74): Archie is STILL on strike, and Edith and Mike end up getting jobs, Edith's being at a certain drycleaners... 9.5/10

4. The Bunkers and Inflation, Part Four (5/10/74): Archie's union finally resolves the strike, but with Archie being in an even worse position. 9.5/10

5. Lionel the Live-In (12/10/74): After a high-decibel late night argument with his father over his girlfriend, Lionel temporarily moves into the Bunker house. 10/10

6. Archie's Helping Hand (19/10/74): Archie gets Irene a job at his plant, not knowing it's one with him... 9/10

7. Gloria's Shock (26/10/74): Mike announces to Gloria that he doesn't want to have any children, shocking and angering Gloria. 9.5/10

8. Where's Archie?, Part One (2/11/74): While Edith is hosting a Tupperware party, Archie hasn't called from Buffalo, meaning he didn't make it to his lodge convention... 6/10.

9. Where's Archie?

I always enjoy this sitcom. It touches on issues that are relevant today. Some people may find the episodes offensive in some of the episodes, but the reason for that is to expose ignorance. Archie the ignorant bigot shows how disgusting bigots can be. Carol spelling) O'Connor was a superb actor, and nobody could have played the character, Archie Bunker, as well as he did. Rest in peace, Carol.
