Excellent portrayal of The Jeffersons' first day of business
10 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having watched this show as a child and now as an insomniac, I never tire of it. However, this episode was exceedingly special. Not only do we see a more compassionate George in regards to his wife; we also see how compassionate he can be in regards to his customers.

The story begins with George counting his money. I, at first, thought the audience was about to treated to another knock off of "A Christmas Carol". I was very wrong. The first dollar that George Jefferson ever owned began a flashback sequence to 1968. This was the year that the Jeffersons opened their cleaning business.

After an agonizingly slow first day and after several antics, we meet Mrs. Colby, a good soul who supports the "little man" when it comes to business. Of course "Weezie" and George are very happy and grateful.

The end of this show tied everything together nicely. I would most definitely suggest all fans of the show take the opportunity to watch this episode. Don't be surprised if you get a bit misty. You may chide yourself, but don't feel bad! It isn't often that George Jefferson really got an opportunity to show his softer side.
