This "All In The Family" spin-off centers around Edith's cousin, Maude Findlay. She's a liberal independent woman living in Tuckahoe, NY with her fourth husband Walter; owner of Findlay's Friendly Appliances, Carol Trainor; Maude's divorced daughter from her 2nd marriage and Philip; Carol's son. Other characters included: Dr. Arthur Harmon; Walter's conservative best friend from their Army days. He and Maude were always at odds when it came to politics and just about everything, Vivian Cavender-Harmon; Maude's naieve best friend from their college days who married Harmon in season three; During the show's run, Maude had gone through three maids during the series run: Florida Evans, Nell Naugutuck and Victoria Butterfield. Mrs. Naugutuck and Florida, however, were the most memorable. Although it was a situation comedy, it dealt with serious and often controversial issues, much like Norman Lear's other shows "All In The Family" "One Day At a Time" and "Good Times." Written by

At the end of the series, the Governor of New York State appoints Maude to the House of Representatives, filling a vacancy caused by the death of her local Congresswoman. In fact, vacancies in the House of Representatives caused by the death, resignation, or expulsion of a member can be filled only by a special or general election. The rules for filling vacancies in the U.S. Senate, however, vary from state to state. See more »
Dr. Arthur Harmon:
[Vivian gives a deceased woman back a brooch Arthur took from her]
How could Vivian do such a thing?
Don't worry, Arthur. Hatti will give it back to Agnes. She's bound to run into her down there.

If you don't watch this show, that is. I must admit, I love All in the Family, however for me this is just a bit better.
Bea Arthur was PERFECT in her role as the tough-spirited yet gullible Maude Findlay. Bill Macy was the perfect husband for her, playing Walter to a T. Conrad Bain and Rue McClanahan were wonderful as well, playing the slightly nutty Harmon's, and watching their relationship develop was a testament as to how the writers could bring two characters believably together. Rounding out the cast were Adrienne Barbeau, and the late Esther Rolle and Hermoine Baddeley.
This show also tackled as many serious subjects as All in the Family. From abortion to alcoholism, Maude and family dealt with it in a fashion that was not only informative but humorous and tasteful as well.
Maudie is back!
