All in the Family's Emotional Christmas

Archie's feeling confused!

I recently wrote about the tragic 1977 Christmas episode of All in the Family entitled 'Edith's Crisis of Faith' for the incredible blog Kindertrauma.  Go there now and read it.  It's not too late to comment--and while you're over there, you should 'follow' them as well.  Kindertrauma.com is an awesome site!  Though this emotional episode was made over 30 years ago, the political and social issues it touches on are still relevant.

Here comes Beverly LaSalle 

Any excuse to show off my Dynamite Magazine collection!

The two-part episodes are available to watch on You Tube.  Have you checked out my You Tube channel yet?  TisTheSeasonTV.  Rewatch all you favorite Christmas episodes and specials. I'm adding more titles all the time so stop back again.  I also have a 1990s playlist if you're still looking to guest blog during the month of July.  Contact me if you would like to write about a Christmas episode, special or movie made during the 1990s.


  1. Wow! Didn't know you had a YouTube Channel! Gonna check it out!

    I commented on the Kindertrauma article this morning, great stuff, even though I have never watched this particular episode of All in the Family. Or, at least, I don't remember watching it.

    And yeah, Kindertrauma is a site made of total greatness!

  2. Being on Kindertrauma was certainly the highlight of my week! If you had seen that Beverly LaSalle episode, you would remember it. It's on You tube if you still want to see it :)

    Yeah, the You tube channel is fairly new. I've been working on it over the last couple months--adding new favorites, making playlists and soon I hope to upload some stuff. It' a great resource.

  3. "Dynamite Magazine"...holy freakin' flashback Batman!!! I had totally, totally forgotten about that magazine.

    Love your blog.

  4. Thanks! and thanks for commenting.
