      Season 8 – All in the Family

      1977 Comedy List
      Reviews 100% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score "All in the Family" is touted as the series that brought reality to prime-time TV entertainment. The lead character, Archie Bunker, is a loudmouthed, uneducated bigot who believes in every stereotype he has ever heard. His wife, Edith, is sweet but not the sharpest knife in the drawer. They and their daughter, Gloria, and her husband, Mike, all live in a working-class home. Unfortunately for Archie, he can't avoid the people he disdains: His son-in-law -- whom Archie calls "Meathead" -- is an unemployed student and of Polish descent; the Jeffersons next door are black; Edith's cousin Maude is a feminist; and, later, his partners in a local tavern are Jewish.

      Robert David Sullivan AV Club Most strikingly, Archie essentially admits that he inherited racist attitudes from his own father - and says it would be a betrayal to change them. Though not the official finale, this is a fitting capstone for the series. Aug 29, 2018 Full Review
