All In The Family was the groundbreaker and paved the road for other Norman Lear shows to follow. One Day At A Time doesn't really have the star power like All In The Family does. That's probably as good a reason as any why the series hasn't been fully released on DVD yet.

AITF has funny classic characters that made the show #1. One Day at a time didn;t have any classic characters that is in the category of comedy

I'll agree with you on that one. All In The Family has Archie Bunker, classic 70's sitcom character. The funniest character in One Day At A Time is Schneider. He's funny, but not really considered among classic 70's sitcom characters.

I don't care for Maude, never did get into that show. I was never a Bea Arthur fan.

I agree I loved the way they played off of each other. I didn't care for any of her other boyfriends really until Sam in the last couple seasons. I wasn't a fan of Nick or his son. Something about made him seem a lot older to me than he was.

I think Sam looked sleazy and looked too old for Ann. It would have been cool if Ann hooked up with David, but the series had just started and the producers wanted Ann to be a single woman. There was that "Indianapolis Story" episode later on when David came back for Ann, then at the end he decided he didn't want her.

And that's why it's not a show you watch over and over because it's a story not a comedy

My Dad too. He hated Maude! And my Mom loved Maude ! My Dad said she was a big mouthed manly woman! He's old school and didn't like a woman who was bossy and liberated like her! And my Mom got a kick out of her!! I think she secretly wished she could talk to my Dad the way Maude talked to Walter!

The seasons with that drunken maid Mrs. Nauagtuck was just too hard to watch which is why I would even want the complete series on DVD as a gift

Everyone says season 2-9 never came out because season 1 didn't sell. My theory is season 1 sold so well that everyone retired billionaires and just didn't bother with the rest.

I must think like your dad because my opinion of Maude is similar to his. Maude was a character women of the 70's related to during the liberation movement. Maude didn't have many male admirers, and wasn't intended to. I feel bad for Bill Macy, the actor who played her husband on the show. He had a miserable role. Adrienne Barbeau was good looking though, she was pretty hot!
