    FROM AWARD-WINNING TELEVISION PRODUCER NORMAN LEAR COMES:
    ************************************************** ************************************
    ALL IN THE FAMILY - THE COMPLETE COLLECTION OF
    CLASSIC EPISODES FROM THE SECOND SEASON
    ************************************************** ************************************
    Comes to DVD in a Three-Disc Set on February 4, 2003

    CARROLL O'CONNOR, JEAN STAPLETON, ROB REINER AND SALLY STRUTHERS
    STAR IN THIS GROUNDBREAKING COMEDY

    Culver City, Ca (Dec.11, 2002) - On February 4, 2003, Columbia
    TriStar Home Entertainment
    will release first time ever on DVD ALL IN THE FAMILY - THE COMPLETE
    SECOND
    SEASON.

    From one of television's pioneering creators, Norman Lear (One Day
    at a Time, Sanford
    and Son, Maude, The Jeffersons), comes one of the most beloved families
    in television history,
    the Bunkers, starring Carroll O'Connor as Archie, Jean Stapleton as
    Edith, Rob Reiner as Mike
    "Meathead" Stivic and Sally Struthers as Gloria. Television was changed
    forever the night of
    January 12, 1971, when the premiere episode of All in the Family
    debuted.

    The show's central character, Archie Bunker, is a working-class
    family man who holds
    bigoted, conservative views of the world. His viewpoints clash with
    nearly everyone with whom
    he comes into contact, especially his liberal son-in-law Mike Stivic
    (or, as Archie delights in
    calling him, "Meathead"). The two disagree about nearly everything:
    politics, minorities, sex,
    religion, economics, war, gun control, crime, free speech, women's
    rights, morality, philosophy
    and (so it seems) life in general. Archie's daughter, Gloria, often (but
    not always) sides with
    Mike, while his saintly wife, Edith, is the rock that holds the family
    together. Edith is as friendly,
    reserved, considerate and open-minded as Archie is bigoted, loud, rude
    and closed-minded;
    however, the love and faithfulness between them is undeniable.

    During the course of its remarkable eight-year run, All in the
    Family was nominated for an
    amazing 48 Emmy Awards, taking home 20 trophies with multiple wins for
    all of the lead
    characters as well as three wins for Outstanding Comedy Series. Numerous
    spin-off series
    resulted from All in the Family including the very successful Maude and
    The Jeffersons.

    Ron,
    Thanks for the info. I can't wait to get my hands on Season 2 where this series really started to get on a roll. I'm disappointed that one of the greatest sitcoms in TV history does not get any supplemental/special treatment whatsoever. Still, I wouldn't miss the hours of laughter this set will provide.
