Archie vs. Granny
21 March 2019 | by stones78See all my reviews

While I wasn't planning to spoil the ending, I see that the description of this episode already states that Archie "wins legal custody of Stephanie", which will affect my review, but oh well. It's obvious he would keep Stephanie, considering we're only a few episodes after the death of Edith, so I couldn't see him getting a double whammy, as that would be too much pain for Archie and the viewers. Look for familiar faces in Celeste Holm, who looks like Rue McClanahan, Howard Witt, who looks like Charles Nelson Reilly, Lloyd Nolan, and Jeff Altman. I'm not a huge fan of this particular show, but this isn't that bad an episode, as Carroll O'Connor displays some real acting chops, as he plays it both serious AND funny, although some of the racial comments to a black social worker got a bit tedious. The judge(Nolan)was probably the highlight, as he was serious, but added some funny quips to lighten the mood. I still miss Edith, so it's hard to give this show the proper respect, but I can't help it, as Stephanie is no substitute for Edith! Look for a weak performance from Barney, played by Allan Melvin, as he uttered forced and unfunny lines.
