The hilarious landmark comedy series All In The Family returns for its third season with its flawless sense of ensemble chemistry, precision timing, and lasting political relevance intact (and went on to win both the Emmy and Golden Globe for OutstandingComedy Series). These characters have become television's first dysfunctional family: blue-collar conservative Archie (Carroll O'Connor), his long-suffering but loving wife Edith (Jean Stapleton), "little girl" Gloria (Sally Struthers), and her liberal husband "Meathead" Mike (Rob Reiner). Series creator Norman Lear broke nearly every rule and taboo, but their foibles produced some of television's biggest laughs. They could also make us cry, in the heartbreaking "Gloria, the Victim", or shock us, in "TheBunkers & the Swingers" (1973 Emmy for Writing in a Comedy Series). The model for sitcoms to come, All In The Family brilliantly and intimately portrayed the American family while reflecting the social and political landscapes of the 70s, leaving an iible mark of popular culture.
