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 Whether the series was addressing Archies outdated, over-the-top, intolerant behavior or dealing with a college student trying to commit suicide, these characters made the formula work and the show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
3. "The Unemployment Story-Part 1", Oct. 6, 1976
4. "The Unemployment Story-Part 2", Oct. 13, 1976
5. "Archie's Operation", Oct. 27, 1976
6. "Beverly Rides Again", Nov. 6, 1976
7. "Teresa Moves In", Nov. 13, 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.
It is interesting that there are notably less political issues in this season and more heart. While Archie has never much liked Spanish people, he allows a Spanish medical student Theresa to stay with them until she finishes her school. And when he thinks she is being threatened, Archie violently protects her.
The "Draft Dodger" has Archie in an especially angry state when he finds out Michael has invited a draft dodger to dinner. "Archie's Chair" is a sentimental but understandable episode in that Archie can NOT part with his chair even for more money than the chair is worth. "Mike + Gloria Split" is an interesting episdoe where Michael and Gloria have a fight, and Archie has to very simply explain what the problem is.
"Mike the Pacifist" is an especially interesting episdoe in that on a subway, Michael hates himself for punching someone. But Archie and Gloria have to explain to him that his actions were understandable in that the man shoved Gloria. (The wall between Michael + Archie is starting to break down.) We also find ourselves starting to go along with Archie's dislikes when he points out the hypcrisy of certain professions. (Medical + Legal)
Archie's most shining moment here is probably in "The Unemployment Story" when he has to stop a man from jumping off a building and thus killing himself.Read more ›
