archie bunker was obviously wrong with many of his views on things like race and gender. he was supposed to be a mirror to certain factions of the american public.

Not only now, but then too Bucky. My Dad wouldn't have "The Honeymooners" on our TV because of the way that jerk treated Alice. I think Jackie Gleason was probably a jerk in real life too.

actually he was supposed to be a great guy. when i first started in television 27 years ago, the older directors and producers that i worked with/for were the young guys back in jackie gleason's day. and ernie kovacs, and lucille ball, and all of the stars of 50's and 60's tv.

they said gleason was a real gentleman and always treated everyone with respect right down to the facilities people (janitors). he would even invite the entire crew and their families to his house every summer for a bbq.

try to picture someone like david letterman doing that today.

About the same number of folks who would get after me for threatening to smother Shrek in his sleep.

Just saying that people would have fits over hearing me say that as they do hearing Ralph Kramden.

i never thought it was funny when he said that, having seen friends' moms being beaten, shortly before they were as i ran away.

other stuff gleason said or did was funny.
