  • best All in the Familt Epsiode

    Archie is a real dope in this epsiode.
  • great satire on the times

    great episode
  • This was a hilarious episode!

    I always laugh whenever I watch this episode. Archie and Mike arguing about Nixon again. I like it when Archie is wanting to watch football while Mike, Gloria, and Edith want to watch that television special on pollution. I also laughed when Archie was looking at all the things Gloria bought at the store. Than he's like, "What is all this gahbage? Where's my crunchie cereal with the animal cut-outs on the bottom?" Than Gloria says it has no nutritional value. Than Archie says,"My bowels are..." Edith than says" Oh Archie." I always loved it when Mike and Archie never agree on anything. Great episode overall.
  • one of the best ever

    this has to be one of the best episodes of a truely great series.. The whole concept ofMike writting a protest leter that Archie then countered I think the best part was Archies Imagined respnse fron Nixon, and all these years later, how much more is read into it this is so far ahead of its time a true classic
