Storyline

"All in the Family" (1971) had several spin-offs, but none as popular as "Jeffersons, The" (1975). One of the highlights of the show was the wise-cracking maid, Florence Johnson, who constantly engaged in battles of wits with George Jefferson. In this short-lived spin-off sitcom, we learn she has quit her job as a maid for a career as a housekeeper at a fancy hotel. The show was quickly cancelled due to lack of ratings, however, and Gibbs, Marla returned to the "deluxe apartment in the sky" and explained that the hotel had burned to the ground, and continued to star in "Jeffersons, The" (1975) for the rest of it's run.

Short-lived but very funny
26 May 2004 | by (Arlington, VA) – See all my reviews

This spin-off of The Jeffersons came out about 8 years before Marla Gibbs' second series, "227." I remember watching Checking In in the early 80s and even remember the theme song. It was funny and entertaining. There was one episode that was actually sort of scary, involving a flute-playing ghost that haunted one of the rooms in the old hotel. I would like to see this forgotten TV show resurrected on TV Land or Nick at Night, or maybe a special DVD release. Other lost, short-lived classics of the late 70s/early 80s I'd like to see--"It's a Living," about the friends who worked on top of the Bonaventure Hotel in downtown LA; "All's Fair," with Bernadette Peters; "On Our Own," with Bess Armstrong; "Best of the West," an amusing big budget comedy/western series. Sometimes the best, and most intelligent, TV shows never get a chance!
