All In The Family / Jeffersons / Live

Did anyone watch the All In The Family /Jeffersons live event? It was pretty interesting viewing. Some of it worked and some of it didn't. I did not really by Woody Harrelson as Archie Bunker, but Jamie Foxx And Wanda Sykes made a good George And Louise, (though Jamie Foxx was moving his shoulders a little to much, also he's a lot taller than Sherman Helmsley.)

I am surprised how scarce the YouTube clips are - the blooper and the opening credits are the only clips that I've seen.


Please look at my signature.

I happen to catch the original AITF episode. They made a lot of changes for the re-creation. Most notably, the brief appearance by Irene Lorenzo in the recreation was by Frank Lorenzo in the original.

The worst part, the guy playing George Jefferson in the recreation flubbed a line and the broke character. Really unprofessional. He should be blacklisted.
