Throwback: All in the Family Clip

by Amy K. Bredemeyer

So now we're starting up something new. Not favorite episodes or anything like that, but clips that I've come across, or reruns I've caught recently, or memorable moments I've been reminded of. Throwback Thursdays was something that I thought of back in January when I found the clip I'm going to include today. And, since I watch a lot of reruns (especially before bed), I figured that it's an area that I shouldn't have trouble coming up with ideas for!

All in the Family first hit the airwaves more than forty years ago! I had no idea it had been that long until I stopped to do the math. A lot of controversy came out of the comedy, and it certainly had a great deal of non-politically-correct moments. The (anti)feminist segments stand out quite a bit to me, much more than the racially-charged or sexually-infused scenes and storylines.

I haven't seen a ton of episodes of this show, perhaps only a dozen or so. The eight minutes I've included below are some of the funniest jam-packed minutes I've seen in a long time. This is the middle part of an episode where Archie might have consumed mushrooms that were contaminated with botulism. Prepare to laugh!

well, what did you think?
