Season Eight of the award-winning television series from Norman Lear earned Emmys for Carroll O’Connor, Jean Stapleton and Rob Reiner, not to mention the award for Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Directing in a Comedy Series.
This second to last season finds Archie (O’Connor), Edith (Stapleton) and the Stivics (Reiner and Sally Struthers) battling some difficult issues when Archie buys a bar he cannot afford, Edith questions her faith and Mike and Gloria plan a move to California. As dark as the plots run at times, the laughs always shine through in this perfectly balanced and performed sitcom that inspired spin-offs Maude and The Jeffersons.
