Adapted from the British tv series “Till Death Do Us Part” by Norman Lear, All In The Family changed the face of sitcoms. It was not afraid to tackle controversial, difficult, and downright taboo issues head on. The show followed the lives of the blue-collar Bunker family, which consisted of bigoted, but lovable Archie, his sweet wife Edith, their daughter Gloria, and son-in-law Michael “Meathead” Stivic.
