Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
The 1972-73 season of the history-making situation comedy All in the Family continued executive producer Norman Lear's hot streak, taking home the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series for the third consecutive time. The winning character formula of Archie (Carroll O'Connor), Edith (Jean Stapleton), Gloria (Sally Struthers), and Mike (Rob Reiner) remained in place for this 24-episode third season, and issues such as gun control, women's liberation, and racism were tackled with typical forthrightness. The topic of rape is the focus of the harrowing episode "Gloria, the Victim," wherein Gloria agonizes over whether or not to report an attempted rape. Hate crimes are the topic of the day when someone paints a swastika on the Bunkers' door in "Archie Is Branded." Of course, All in the Family is a comedy, and lighthearted episodes can be found as well, including the two-part fan favorite "Flashback: Mike and Gloria's Wedding," which recounts the hassles Archie had with Mike's uncle before the ceremony. There are also plenty of laughs in "Oh Say Can You See," wherein a reunion with younger-looking chums from high school leaves Archie feeling his age. And in "The Bunkers and the Swingers," the Emmy-winning episode that is perhaps the season's best half hour, Edith answers a newspaper ad placed by a married couple, only to discover that they are interested in wife swapping.
