And justice for all?
30 November 2016 | by stones78See all my reviews

With the recent crazy world of American politics, this episode revolves around the power of the purse, which directly affects one Archie Bunker. The story has Archie robbed in his cab by a young white man, which both surprises and disappoints him, but it turns out this youngster is the son of a powerful politician. Watch for familiar faces in Robert Mandan and Michael Pataki, as they both play their respective parts convincingly. An interesting scene has Archie obviously lambasting the criminal, while Mike the liberal tells him that even criminals aren't pieces of trash, as Archie calls the thief; however, after Archie gets bribed by a smooth talking attorney to drop the charges, Mike reverts to calling Archie a hypocrite, and even criticizes the attorney for defending the politician's son. It was nice to see Mike take off his liberal cap for once, and call a spade a spade. I won't spoil the ending, but even though Archie got paid/bribed $100 to forget about the crime, his wallet is about to get "legally" hit in the police station. The most notable aspect for me was Mandan's and Pataki's appearances, but this was still a solid episode.
