In the episode we watched of All in the Family, Archie Bunker did not back away from making comments and ordering around his wife. When Sammy Davis Jr. made a guest appearance Archie did not hold back from making racist comments. Additionally, when Sammy Davis came into the Bunker household Archie kept trying to shoo away his wife Edith. He told Edith to get the coffee and make sure she wasn’t in the way. In the chapter it talks about how Archie is such a loving character despite his occasional rude comments and behavior. However, I did not necessarily fall in love with his character after watching this episode. He annoyed me with his comments and ordering his wife around. However if I watched more episodes I would probably like and respect Archie’s character more by rationalizing that his ideas are simply rather conservative. However, I would argue that by just watching one episode it is hard to sympathize with his character, it is easier to find him stuck in his ways and intolerant.
