Season 2, Ep. 19: Archie & Edith, Alone

Chris & Lindsay discuss Episode 19 of Season 2, "Archie & Edith, Alone," where Mike & Gloria depart to a commune, leaving Archie & Edith to reflect on the state of their marriage, leading to the two addressing long-standing underlying concerns. Dr. Joyce Brothers, speaking with Sonny, Cher, & Mike Douglas, adds really interesting context to this discussion of Archie & Edith’s psychology. This episode is a ‘must-watch’ to truly understand some of the underlying motivations of Archie Bunker’s thinking.
