Susan Saint James,
Carroll O'Connor and series writer/producer Fred Rubin wanted to do an episode in which Archie Bunker had a reunion with his old Army buddies in Foggia, Italy, where the character had served. O'Connor, who had lived in Italy for many years, wanted to film the episode on location in Italy. However, CBS never accepted the story idea. See more »

It was never the same as the original but still worth watching anyway!
Carroll O'Connor's character Archie Bunker was so popular that the network could not let him go so easily. Jean Stapleton, Rob Reiner, and Sally Struthers were eager to move away from their television personalities. But let's face it, they were on one of the most popular sitcoms ever and for them, it is both a blessing and curse as well. Archie Bunker's Place had a girl, Danielle Brisebois as the Jewish girl from Edith's side of the family. I remember watching Anne Meara, Liz Torres, and others who try to recreate the magic that was All in the Family but the show is still superior to anything on television today so I'm being a little more liberal because the character of ARchie Bunker became an American icon and part of the fabric of American culture that we would miss him too much. THis show allowed us to slowly move on. We love Archie Bunker and the actor who played him, Carroll O'Connor. For most of us, we'll always think of him as Archie.
