  • This is the best episode of All in the Family!

    Alot of people aren't familiar with this episode, however it remains my favorite. The first 15 minutes are hilarious, while the second half is so moving, so incredibly sad. It cements Carrol O'Conner as the greatest actor that has ever graced the small screen. I wait with baited breath for this season to be released on dvd, so all of my friends can see what I've been raving about. Archie's charactor reached heights of complexity never imagined in a movie, much less a sitcom. My favorite performance by an actor.
