Archie is being overprotective over a character no one really cares about....
Recently, the Family Net Channel started broadcasting the old "Archie Bunker's Place" episodes. They are basically "All in the Family" after the interesting characters have all left and Archie is left to deal with people we don't care about and all the old energy and controversy is mostly gone. It's like going to a boxing match and then the fighters just sit down on stools and chat instead of boxing!! The shows aren't terrible...but they aren't good (with only one exception of all the shows I've seen so far).
In this case, Archie's niece, Billie has come to live with them. With so many new characters popping in and out of the show, it really looks like the show is jumping the shark repeatedly--trying all sorts of new things in the hopes that something will work. The controversy in this one is that Archie is protective over Billie and is worried because this college-age girl wants to go on dates. Not exactly wild and crazy stuff and the overall show is pretty bland.
