Did You Know?

Trivia

In the original series, when George would walk on Bentley's back Sherman Hemsley could do it unassisted. In this performance, Jamie Foxx needed Wanda Sykes to stabilize him, probably because he is much taller. See more »

Goofs

Archie only read the Daily News, a tabloid, not whatever oversized paper he was holding. That format is used by the WSJ, and the NY Times, neither of which Archie would ever read. See more »

Not your fathers All In the Family
26 May 2019 | by AfruschmanSee all my reviews

Woody Harrelson is far from what was needed to fill the great Carol O Conners' shoes. He just forced it too much (and not in a meaningful good way) as performances go. Wanda Sykes was an equal letdown as a match for Louises' persona. Edith , and Meathead were the best replacements. George Jefferson , and Gloria were passable. Truly the best achievement of this show ( and the original) was the mirror of racism being laid out in an everyday way for all to see, and comprehend.
