Trivia

In an EmmyTvlegends interview Carroll O'Connor said that the character of Maude "didn't resemble anyone" he knew, and that Maude was a markedly inferior sitcom to his own. This might be a case of life imitating art since Archie didn't get along with Maude either. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the first five seasons,it appears that Mike and Gloria's bedroom is on the opposite side of the wall from Archie and Edith's bedroom. But in later episodes both bedrooms appear to be directly across the hall from eachother. See more »

Too Bad It Couldn't Be Made Today
29 March 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

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.
