All in the Family


All in the Family
This long-running comedy revolved around Archie Bunker (Carroll O'Connor), a working-class, World War II veteran and outspoken bigot who is prejudiced against everyone and everything not in agreement with his view of the world. He longs for simpler times, when people sharing his viewpoint were in charge, as evidenced by the nostalgic theme song, "Those Were the Days," the show's original title. By contrast, his wife Edith (Jean Stapleton) is a sweet, understanding woman. She usually defers to her husband, but on the rare occasions when she takes a stand, she proves to be one of the wisest characters. They have one child, Gloria (Sally Struthers), who is married to college student Michael Stivic (Rob Reiner). Michael is part of the counterculture of the 1960s. He and Archie represent the real-life clash between the two generations: those who were born around World War I and those who were born around World War II.
