The Algebra Problem is interesting, if repetitive, episode of Meet Corliss Archer
21 November 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Corliss asks her dad to figure out an algebra problem. He manages to get his wife into it. When Dexter comes and finds Corliss doing her homework, he tries to help her. Dexter's father comes and tries to help Mr. Archer to solve the algebra problem. Corliss's mother then goes to Dexter's mother's house and they count various household items in order to solve the math problem! Finally, Corliss's dad goes to work and asks the C.P.A. there to figure out the problem but even he can't figure it out by the end of the day! As Corliss and Dexter are on the back porch relaxing, their parents are still discussing the problem...Pretty amusing episode although it gets a little monotonous with the repetition. Some amusing visual gags in the cartoon bumpers and live-action sequences especially one I like involving a kitchen appliance that holds butter suddenly turning into a toy police car in front of Mr. Archer's eyes! Worth seeing at least once for anyone interested in sitcoms from the '50s.
