Storyline

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 Kate Tripper

Trivia

Doris Roberts was originally cast as Vivian. But after a pilot was shot, the producers felt that Roberts was too similar to Bea Arthur. She was replaced with Rue McClanahan. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Maude- Edith Bunker's Liberal Cousin ****
18 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lady Godiva was a freedom rider...

And when the country was falling apart, Betsy Ross had it all sewn up...and then there's Maude (repeat,) right on Maude.

That was part of the opening theme song of this very popular show of the 1970s brought about by Beatrice Arthur visiting Archie and Edith Bunker's home on "All in the Family." Go know that Edith and Maude were cousins. The hilarity broke loose when Maude's liberal views were tested with Archie's ultra-conservative leanings. Arthur was such a success on the show that she was given her own show "Maude."

While Maude is very liberal, the film showed that her home was anything but functional. I guess that the same can be said about any liberal or conservative.

The show was highlighted by another great supporting cast with Bill Macy and Adrienne Barbeau as husband and daughter to Maude, respectively.
