If you are too young to remember or just plain don’t know about All In The Family, this show tested every boundary on television. All In The family discussed taboos on T.V. such as swingers, racism, homosexuality even women’s liberation, abortion and breast cancer to name a few. From 1970 til 1983 this was a huge hit and the majority of America tuned in. One hilarious episode sticks out in my mind, it was on swingers. Edith is riding the subway and finds a magazine and discovers a swap article. Not knowing it was a swingers swap, she continues to contact the couple, probably thinking it was swing dancing. It started by Edith discovering the magazine not realizing what on earth the article was intending. Edith presumes the pair want friendship to meet new people, fair enough. the couple which placed the ad, Mike and Gloria, in a hurry, attempt to tell Edith and Archie what they want go unnoticed at first. Its not until the couple arrive at Archie’s place that Edith discovers what they want with a little help from Louise. What happens next is hilarious, hope you enjoy.
Enjoy This 3 minute video form the infamous episode.
