Which 'All in the Family' character are you?
by Joshua Laurent

Are you a Meathead?  Do you own a recliner? When it comes to television shows that were really ahead of their time, "All in the Family" is at the top of the list. It seems amazing that a show like that could even be on television way back then, let alone today. It was topical, political and took on prejudice and race relations in a way that has rarely been seen on television either before or after. Oh, and it was also totally hilarious.

The main character was Archie Bunker, who wasa  blue collar conservative with a loud mouth, but when it came right down to it he was a good family guy. Then there was his wife Edith, who got confused sometimes but was a sweet woman who wanted to take care of everyone. They had a daughter named Gloria who was stuck in the middle between her parents and her ultra-liberal husband Mike, who didn't get along with Archie at all. Then who could forget their neighbor George Jefferson, a proud African American who constantly clashed with Archie  There is no doubt that these are some of the most realistic and memorable characters that have ever been on television.  Take this quiz to find out which All in the Family character you are!
