Storyline

Archie gets ready to have a booming business at the bar on Super Bowl Sunday. He has packed sandwiches, bought a projection television, and plans to keep shoveling beer down the customer's throats all night long - even if he has to cheat them to do it. During the festivities, however, two guy drop in that no one seems to know. They plan to rob the place just as the tabs are being collected. Their plan goes off without a hitch and even the added humiliation of having everyone in the bar drop their pants so they can make a clean getaway.

Whenever any episode revolves around Archie's bar, it's probably a safe bet it'll be mediocre, as this one surely was. Most of the episode takes place there as the guests are preparing for the big game between Dallas and Denver, although it seemed a tad corny when everyone in the bar sang the pre-game anthem while standing up. The gist of the story is that while Archie plans to charge the patrons for sandwiches and football pools, his bar is about to get robbed by 2 dopes who don't bother to conceal their faces; you may recognize Louis Guss as one of the robbers, who has a bad New York accent that could be chopped off with an ax. This isn't as bad as when Archie pops pills, but it's close, as nothing remotely funny happens here, and we get to see everyone in their underwear, as the thieves order them to do, which is as unfunny as it gets. The jokes were stale, and Archie trying to break up a fight with a baseball bat is laughable. Stay away from 1978 episodes, save for a few, as the show was begging to be put out of its' misery.
