All in the Family/Jeffersons: LIVE TONIGHT (5/22/19)

Recommended Posts

Tonight, 8pm Eastern, ABC.

 

I don't know why, but I'm actually looking forward to this.  I think it's mostly because I love Wanda Sykes (will be Louise Jefferson) and it's live ... so between her and Woody Harrelson (Archie Bunker), SOMEONE has to drop an F bomb, right???

 

Should be a lot of fun.  I really like that it's (so far) a one-time-only affair.

If the phrase “Woody Harrelson as Archie Bunker” is at all up your alley, you’ve come to the right place.ABC is staging one-night-only revivals of two iconic Norman Lear sitcoms, All in the Family and The Jeffersons, Jimmy Kimmel announced during his show on Thursday.

Airing Wednesday, May 22 at 8/7c, the 90-minute live event stars Woody Harrelson and Marisa Tomei .......

I'm DVRing All in the Family/Jeffersons.  I'll flick back and forth during commercials, though.

As true as that may be, the Nationals are significantly worse.

Norman Lear is 96? He looks the same as he did when he launched these two groundbreaking and iconic shows. 

 

While the material is still relevant, I lament that today’s generation just can’t handle language. And that’s a shame because it really gets  in the way of the message.

Even back then, the language was taboo.  But TV networks weren't afraid of it.  That language ... and shows like All in the Family, The Jeffersons, What's Happenin' and Good Times ... they appealed to RATIONAL PEOPLE and they were educational.  They creatively and, with humor, helped people understand that although cultures may be different, people can still be equally good people.

 

Norman Lear is a genius and his heart and brain have always been in the right place.

 

To your point ... it is a Goddamn shame that our society can no longer appreciate, or enjoy, this form of art as a teaching mechanism.

I watched about the first 15 minutes of the All in the Family episode.  I didn't realize they were going to be re-creating an actual episode/sticking to script.  I thought that was cool.  Harrelson and Tomei were good Archie/Edith, I thought.  Meathead was good and Gloria was SMOKING HOT.

 

The Mets game was a good one, so I just stuck it back on SNY and kept it there.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the special, but I already think it is definitely something that should only be done once in a while.

who swept the GNATS this series

Was it good?

It was good if you just wanted to see the show as it was line for line with different actors.

 

 It was funnier watching Jamie Fox over emulate George Jefferson.   His body movements toned down in The Jeffersons segment.  

 

I have no idea who the guy was that brought the cake was.  Almost useless.

It’s actually a 4 game series but it looks like it’s gonna be rained out

 

I can appreciate the effort last night but I’ll stick to the reruns
