  • Edith's Aunt Iola has spent two weeks in the Bunker household. Edith, Gloria and Michael love her company, but Archie can't wait to get rid of her.


    "Aunt Iola's Visit" is a good episode of this classic television series (Though there have been better episodes.). What helps this episode stand out is the well written script and the terrific performances all around. The late Nedra Volz does a very good job as Aunt Iola. Though she was not a houshold name, Volz had a long impressive career with numerous television appearances. She certainly made her mark here as she did on episodes of Alice, The Dukes of Hazard and Diff'ernt Strokes. If you're looking for a feel good episode of All in the Family this is it.
