Interesting first "All in the Family" pilot
5 September 2017 | by stevenfallonnycSee all my reviews

Having been lost for many years, this very first "All in the Family" pilot finally surfaced and we get to finally see how one of the greatest shows in TV history was born.

Of course, as with all pilots, tweaking was in order, and it's rather obvious that the original Mike and Gloria (Mike being "Dickey" here, and Irish, not polish) are pretty bad. They don't fit with the roles, and their delivery is pretty rough. It's a harsh contrast to the superb professionalism of Jean Stapleton and Carroll O'Connor as Edith and Archie Justice (not "Bunker" quite yet) respectively, who seem right at home playing their characters. They are so good in fact, that during All in the Family's heyday, there really isn't too much difference in their characters then from here.

D'Urville Martin gives a respectable Lionel (he also played Lionel in the second unaired pilot), but, while better than the other two supporting actors, it's obvious he doesn't quite fit. Martin of course went on to have a pretty decent career as a supporting actor.

The house layout if different, which is a little unsettling as we're so used to the "classic" home. Outside of Lionel, there are no neighbors mentioned or seen. Jean and Carroll pretty much completely run the show and take off with it, that's how good they are.

This is definitely a must-see for all All in the Family fans, as you don't always get the chance to see the origin of such a historic show.
