Trivia

In the original pilot, the title of the show was "Those Were The Days". At the same time a song with the same name by Mary Hopkin was a big hit. When a new pilot was developed, CBS decided to change the title yet kept the theme song titled "Those Were The Days". See more »

Goofs

Mike is shown being a college student in the 1970s. Assuming that he went to college straight from high school (or even after an open year) he would still be in his early 20s when the series began. Rob Reiner is clearly older than the character would be and he seems to be a very poor student as it takes him nearly six years to complete college (despite going full time) only to obtain a job that would require just a four-year degree.

An excellent sitcom, POINT BLANK!
18 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is definitely my favorite show and I am glad that there are re-runs on Nick-At-Nite. One of my favorite episodes is when Archie gets locked in the cellar and is finally "rescued" by a repair man, but Archie is drunk and he thinks that the repair man is god, little does know, that the repair man is black!(not that it matters, but to archie?!) And when he bows down to him and lifts his head to see his "god" the audience roared in laughter as did I. Sometimes I wish that this show was on now, (of course with all the stupid issues today, that would be close to impossible), but then again it wouldn't be as good as it was, with all of the "1970's issues" to make fun of and comment on....infact, I think that the issues of the day greatly helped make this show the hit it was, along with the superb acting of course.I hope this show remains on the air for a long time, because I could never get sick of watching All In the Family!
