Default All In The Family & The Jeffersons Life Tonight

So they are taking one of the original show of each series and doing them life tonight on ABC. Should be fun to watch.

I'll be watching. Like Jamie Fox but love Woodie Harellson. Be interested to see how each potrays their character. Both are a little pregudiuce to todays standards.

" “The times are so different now—much more conservative,” he said. “In fact, there’s a lot of episodes you couldn’t do [today] because of some of the things he says back then.” "

I don't think it's "more conservative" at all... you'd get more complaints from the 'sensitive' types if you were to air those shows now on a network. They do show reruns, but the are on Retro or some other ancillary channel.

I will be interesting to see how they pull it off.

It’s terrible. Stopped paying attention about 4 minutes into it. It’s so bad, I went and did the dishes!!!

Marisa Tomeo was superfluous as Edith and it was hilarious.

I lasted about 15 minutes. Turned it off. The "studio audience" seemed much more interested in the Jefferson's plight. But, with douchbag Jimmy Kimmel at the controls, it's no surprise...

Watching...
Surprised that someone with Woody Harrelson's politics and state of insanity played Archie Bunker.

Loving the throwback to the 40 year old scripts.

I honestly didn't know what to think about it but with so much history involved I watched it. yea,Jimmy Kimmel turned me off but he kept his yapper shut. Woody Harrelson nailed it and Marissa Tomea, well lets just say I have a little attraction. They did the script word for word so if you liked the original you shouldn't have had a problem with it. I almost got the feeling that Hollywood was saying don't be so sensitive, people are people and you just have to accept it. If so that would be a huge step.
It showed bigotry on both sides like the original did and thats the way it was and is. I watched the Jeffersons after and was amazed by the star power. Will Farrell, and other big names including Oscar winners. I'm not a big fan of any of these people but I enjoyed the throwback aspect of this experiment.
It almost felt like they addressed politics without throwing the current stuff in your face....... If they bring back Good Times I might watch but I might draw the line at Maude. P.S. I saw Archies chair at the Smithsonian.

After 5 minutes I turned it off. Wasn't all it was hyped up to be. Nobody can replace or imitate Carrol O'Connor and whoever played the SIL.....yawn.

Liked it for what it was and tried to accomplish. Woody Harrelson is the BIGGEST Douche' Bag.....EVER. Marisa was Outstanding! Jamie Foxx did a great job of George.

Even "live" tv gets sensored. Jamie Fox did a great job, even when he screwed up. I am surprised a pussy network like ABC allowed such a neat program. It was a great social commentary on todays stupid PC concerned generation.

Maybe you had to be there and have watched the originals to see how far we have regressed.

It was neat that Florence did a cameo in the last skit.

One of the most telling skits was the married mixed couple who called each other honky and..see, you can't even say it today without some mod having a meltdown. It was a non-event then, but now....

God forbid they ever watch the great SNL skit between Richard Pryor and Chevy Chase...word association.

Y'know, Woody has come a LONG way since "CHEERS". Took me a while to warm up to him, but he's done some really good, edgy stuff in a professional manner.

That SNL skit was OUTSTANDING with Richard Pryor and Chevy Chase. The Dave Chappel skit about the milkman is also quite good. If that ever played today, you would have MAJOR network firings and every snowflake pussy ass group enraged demonstrating what real douch'e bags they are............................................... ............................

Watching a bunch of actors acting to portray actors who were acting in a 40 plus year old sitcom...I guess that is entertainment,The whooping by the live audience was pretty lame.It's amazing to watch some of the old TV shows and marvel at the quality acting that was typical back then,Andy Griffith show,Gunsmoke,Twilight Zone,Rifleman...You can still find some real acting,but it's usually not on network TV.
