This series took place in an apartment building numbered 227. The cast would frequently be sitting outside on a large set of stone stairs, involved in some discussion that would unfold into the weekly plotline.
Like the final season of "All in the Family", the series was not taped in front of a live audience. Completed episodes were shown to the studio audiences for One Day at a Time (1975) and their laughter was recorded and edited into the episodes. See more »
As the camera dollies along the "Queens" street to the bar in the opening credits, a palm tree is briefly visible behind the set buildings. See more »
Unfortunately I only saw a few episodes when in it orginially aired and have been watching repeats on TV land. I seriously wonder if Archie Bunker's place was staged before a live audience. The laughter in the series seemed almost forced. In my opinion the only memorable episode is when Archie Bunker visits Reggie Jackson and shows off his hidden racist views. Archie Bunker seems to have mellowed from his previous "All in Family" series and is a mere chuckle than a rip roaring laugh.
