Writers considered a story line in which Archie had an affair with next door neighbor and contrast/foil Irene Lorenzo, but the plans were dropped as it was determined to be too far out of character for both Archie and Irene. See more »
From the inside, reading backwards, we see "Kelcy's Bar". In most, but not all episodes, the ending credits spell the name of the Brendan Dillon or Bob Hastings character as "Kelsey", not "Kelcy". See more »
In today's politically correct environment, a show like this could not be made today. This show dealt with the prejudices that ALL of us have in us. I am African-American and I admit that at times I have said things about other races that I now regret. I get that from my late father who was a Black version of Archie, even down to the favorite easy chair. Anyone can be a bigot and I feel that this show pointed it out in its own unique way.
Also, this show really dealt with issues besides predjudice. In fact it was groundbreaking due to the fact it dealt with so many controversial issues such as Vietnam, menopause, impotence, gun control and rape. In fact, the episode that pretty much stands out in a lot of peoples minds is when Edith had to deal with the fact that she was nearly raped on her birthday and what she went through to face her worst fear.
