Everyone is whining about the poor picture quality about this DVD. All In The Family, like many other sitcoms of the era, was recorded on videotape, a cheap alternative to film, but it also aged quickly. Videotape uses a magnetic method of storing images; north and south, on and off, etc and tape slowly demagnitizes. Film doesn't. So over 30 years later, there's bound to be some degradation of picture quality. These look exactly the same as the Nick At Nite airings, contrary to an earlier review. Bottom line: this is as good picture quality as it gets.
On the DVD itself: I love this show. Evry single episode is hilarious. Carroll O' Connor is 100000% perfect for the role of Archie Bunker, All-American. I just wish that there was even a lousy commentary track by the surviving members of the cast. Anyway, get it.
