"...writing that was especially sharp...  James Plath, DVD Town

Editor's Note
Before the Huxtables of THE COSBY SHOW and the Banks of THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR, there were the Jeffersons. This landmark 1970s sitcom set a precedent with its successful black family led by George Jefferson (Sherman Helmsley) and his wife Louise (Isabel Sanford). This spin-off of Norman Lear's ALL IN THE FAMILY follows George and Louise as they make their fabled move to the Upper East Side. The sixth season was famous for its two-part episode "The Arrival." Interracial couple Lionel (George and Louise's son) and his wife, Jenny, are expecting a new baby, but all George can worry about is what color his grandchild will be. For all its progressive politics, THE JEFFERSONS was most notable for being so consistently hilarious over its 11-year run. This release includes every episode of the sixth season.

Professional Reviews

ePinions.com 10 of 10
The Jeffersons was the most popular spin-off to the groundbreaking All in the Family, one of the greatest of all situation comedies (the other AITF spin-off was Maude, which, in turn, beget Good Times)...Call me crazy, but I'm wishing that all sitcoms were like this. There's something about Norman Lear's creations that intrigues me. Most sitcoms play it safe, or are pointlessly vulgar. Lear's shows get under your skin -- they hit a nerve -- or they just plain offend people. The fact that people are still offended by these shows says a lot about the impact they made when they originally went on the air...The scripts are pretty good, too, although they don't always have the power that some of the best AITF episodes had. - David MacDonald
