Did You Know?


Archie Bunker: I couldn't go to that thing even if I wanted to. We're supposed to be busy in here tonight.
Harry Snowden: I can handle it. I think you should go to the school show.
Archie Bunker: I hate school shows. I've hated school shows ever since I was this high. God, will I never forget. There was always some kid pounding a piano, and there was always some four-eyed sissy torturing a violin, a fat slob reciting "Trees", and then there was always the black kid singing, "My Yiddishe Mome".

Many of these late season episodes unfortunately star the actress who shall not be named again, and the show suffered for it, as the stories were weak. This bland story has Edith losing her voice due to laryngitis while practicing with Stephanie for a PTA meeting in which they will sing together. There's a few funny lines uttered by Archie regarding Edith's lost voice, but there's also too many scenes with the little brat to weigh the show down, especially the painful scene where she sings a song in Archie's bar, while trying to act cute, and it fails miserably. There's another scene which really annoys me, and it's a stupid card trick that Hank(Danny Dayton)plays on Archie a few times, and even though it's not worth mentioning on here, Hank's silly laugh makes my blood boil. To end this painful review, I would recommend you skip any episode Stephanie makes an appearance.
