When George Jefferson was introduced as Archie Bunker's neighbor on All in the Family in 1973, it created perhaps the most volcanic racial pairing since Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier took it on the lam in The Defiant Ones. Better still: This pairing was funny. George, a cantankerous, upwardly mobile African-American man, matched Archie bluster to bluster. Not surprisingly, producers Norman Lear and Bud Yorkin soon spun George (Sherman Hemsley) off into his own show, The Jeffersons, and followed his family's social climb. George and his wife, Louise (Isabel Sanford), moved on up from Archie's Queens neighborhood into a "de-luxe apartment" in Manhattan, along with their son, Lionel (Mike Evans). George and "Weezy" hit their comedic stride in the very first episode and never looked back; while Marla Gibbs, as the Jefferson's irascible maid, Florence, stole scenes with abandon. In many ways, The Jeffersons followed All in the Family's lead as confrontational comedy. The show introduced Tom and Helen Willis, TV's first interracial couple, and continually addressed issues of race and class in a humorous light. The Jeffersons was one of three of successful African-American comedies for Lear, who also developed Sanford and Son and Good Times. This handsome two-disc set collects the show's 24 second-season episodes.
