5.0 out of 5 stars These Are the Days... 26 Feb 2011
By Reconnecting To My Childhood - Published on
...the days of inflation and strikes, Lionel moving in, Archie going missing, the series' hundredth episode retrospective, "fair fighting", stealing from the workplace, the Jeffersons moving up and Mike finally graduating and he and Gloria making a move of their own. A nice season that still showcases some of the best comedy ever seen on sitcom television. In the fifth season the show was still a fan favorite, riding the wave of popularity it had established in the first season and built heavily on since the critically acclaimed second.

The fifth season contains the following 24 episodes:

The Bunkers and Inflation
Archie and Edith's 26th wedding anniversary coincides with worry that Archie's union will go on strike. Archie and Edith both learn of the strike separately and try to keep it from each other and their party guests.

The Bunkers and Inflation (2)/Archie Underfoot
With his union still on strike Archie is stuck at home trying to keep entertained. Meanwhile as family funds dwindle Edith tries to get the family by on a budget.

The Bunkers and Inflation (3)/Edith the Job Hunter
With Archie still out of work Edith and Mike both search for jobs. When Edith finally gets hired by George Jefferson Archie refuses to take his charity.

The Bunkers and Inflation (4)/Archie's Raise
Archie becomes a homemaker when everyone is working but him and he is at home alone all day. Then the strike is called off when his union gets an increased wage, but is Archie really better off?

Lionel the Live-In
The Jeffersons have been having loud arguments keeping the Bunkers up at night. When Lionel has had enough of George giving him grief about his girlfriend Jenny, who has mixed race parents, he moves in with the Bunkers and it's up to a fed up Archie to fix the relationship between father and son.

Archie's Helping Hand
With Frank Lorenzo so often away on work Irene Lorenzo has been around a lot lately. To get her out of his hair Archie attempts to get her a job as a secretary at his work but his plan backfires when she gets a job as forklift driver right alongside him on the dock.

Gloria's Shock
When Mike and Archie fight once again about national problems it is Gloria who is most shocked when she learns Mike doesn't want to have children.

Where's Archie? (1)
Edith prepares a speech for her first tupperware party while Mike and Gloria try to hide their concern over Archie not showing up at a union convention he is supposedly attending in Buffalo.
*As mentioned by another reviewer (and probably known by most reading this) this entire three parter was written when Carol O'Connor walked off the show. The writer's had a plan to kill off his character and have Stretch Cunningham move in with the family.

Archie is Missing (2)
With Archie still missing the family is concerned. Greater concern arises when Mike believes Archie could have run away with a woman from work named Mildred "boom-boom" Turner.

The Longest Kiss (3)
Archie finally sends news of where he has been and that he is coming home. While the family awaits his return (and the writer's kill time) Mike and Gloria try to kiss until he arrives while Edith, Irene, George and Louise end up having an impromtu party.

Archie and the Miracle
After a near death experience on the loading dock Archie has a new lease on life and vows to become a devout churchgoer, but attempting to follow through quickly finds him aggravated.

George and Archie Make a Deal
George has plans for his cleaning store and wants to run for Republican County Commission. When he needs Archie's signature on a petition first to convince other neighbours to sign he and Archie begin their bargaining.

Archie's Contract
Archie gets conned by a man who tells him putting aluminum siding on his house will be beneficial only for Mike and others to help him realize his mistake. Archie tries desperately to get out of the deal but in the end its his friends and family that come through for him.

Mike's Friend
When Mike's friend comes to visit Gloria feels treated as unintelligent when Mike won't include her in their conversations.

The Best of "All in the Family":
Henry Fonda hosts a look back at some of the best moments from the first 100 episodes of the series. A hilarious hour long special that showcases soem truly classic moments.

Prisoner in the House
Edith befriends a plumber's assisstant who also happens to be a convict in the work-release program. When Archie finds out about the man he becomes paranoid and feels unsafe leaving Edith or Gloria alone in the house with him.

The Jefferson' Move Up
Edith says goodbye to Louise Jefferson as Louise, George and Lionel all move on up to their deluxe apartment in the sky. Serves as a pilot for The Jeffersons.

All's Fair
Tired of feeling Edith is pushed around by Archie, Gloria convinces Edith to start "fair fighting". A process Gloria and Mike have been trying where they vent frustrations with each other respectfully. Things quickly erupt from there.

Amelia's Divorce
Archie's sunday is ruined when Edith's cousin Amelia and her husband Russel come to visit. Edith and Archie soon start to appreciate their relationship when they realize the poor state of Amelia and Russel's.

Everybody Does It
Archie 'borrows' some nails and a drill from work to build an overhang on the porch. He soon becomes the topic of a household debate on the definition of morality and then begins to worry Irene Lorenzo will turn him in to the boss.

Archie and the Quiz
A life expectancy quiz in a magazine has Archie rethinking his bad habits of drinking and smoking when he learns he is supposed to die in only seven years time.

Edith's Friend
Edith attends a family wedding without Archie only to run into an old family friend she was once smitten with.

No Smoking
Archie and Mike begin a competition to see who has more will power. Mike tries to go longer without eating than Archie can without a cigar.

Mike Makes His Move
After finally completing school Mike and Gloria are having trouble finding a suitable nearby apartment. When George Jefferson still needs to sell his house he offers it to Mike and Gloria at a reduced rate just to enrage Archie. After turning down the offer Mike eventually takes it when Archie provokes him.

A great season, though a much more mild one when compared to the previous three. Less actual controversial issues and more tame debates on morality, still hilarious and completely enjoyable though. If you've seen it and enjoy it the dvd is worth it, if for some reason you are new then I suggest you start with the second or third season to get a better feel for the show. The new snapcase sets aren't as nice as the original Sony digipaks but since Sony completely abandoned this property it's great that Shout! has picked it back up. Aside from that many studios now are repackaging their old releases in the new cheaper snapcase packaging (Fox has done so with King of the Hill and Family Guy as well as other properties), so there is no saying that had Sony finished what they started that they wouldn't have switched to this packaging as well.

Despite the snapcase you still get the same artwork and episode listing guide that you would have gotten to view with the digipak release. The audio and video are the same quality as watching the reruns on television, they are obviously old and shot on video but if you are a fan of this series you're likely used to the quality by now and even see it as part of the charm of the show. Five stars for the fifth season from me.

*For those interested in the behind the scenes controversy of All in the Family as showcased by Carol O'Connor's walk off during this season, I suggest the book Archie & Edith, Mike & Gloria: The Tumultuous History of All in the Family, it is a great read and is very informative, exploring how the series came to be through its entire run on television and beyond. Terrific.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the Season Where "The Jeffersons" Move On Up! 27 Oct 2005
By BRADLEY R HUTSON - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
All right! I've been waiting a LONG time for this one. This is the season where George and Louise Jefferson will "move on up" to the dee-luxe apartment in the sky. Those of us who were only 2-1/2 years old when this episode originally aired will now be afforded the opportunity to see it in it's original CBS broadcast entirety! Of course, the pilot for "The Jeffersons" is not at all the only good thing that you will get if you buy this season. "All in the Family" was still in fine form at this point with all original players intact, fussing and fighting their way through all kinds of situations and keeping you well entertained for hours upon hours!

Hopefully the glitches that plagued the Season 4 set will not be present here, but if they are bear in mind that videotape does NOT age well. With or without the minor imperfections, we should just be grateful to get our hands on this uncut TV classic in a format that will not deteriorate any further than it already has. It definitely beats the hacked-to-pieces versions that TV Land airs! It's nothing short of shameful how much of the show has been removed over the years to make room for so many more commercials than it was meant for! Supporting these box sets will give the studio faith to keep them coming, and eventually those heavily edited syndicated versions will be made obsolete.

1.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for show, 1 star for packaging 4 Dec 2011
By Bryan - Published on
Sony has re-released this show in a regular dvd case with the 3 disc on top of each other. This is CHEAP and LAZY. Seek out the original packaging. It's pretty bad that a company -any company- tries to save money but at the same time sells something that will most likely be damaged or get damaged in a way they should have known before they manufactured it. LAZY and CHEAP.
