This series took place in an apartment building numbered 227. The cast would frequently be sitting outside on a large set of stone stairs, involved in some discussion that would unfold into the weekly plotline.
Contrary to popular belief, the episode where Archie and Stephanie mourn Edith's passing was not the series premiere. Edith was phased out over the course of the first season, making occasional and brief appearances, like a guest star. The episode everyone remembers was the second season premiere. See more »
As the camera dollies along the "Queens" street to the bar in the opening credits, a palm tree is briefly visible behind the set buildings. See more »
This show never measured up to All in the Family. I was too young to really remember this show, but I have been watching it in TVland. It' not bad, but you can really see the Archie's jokes coming a mile away. I think this show lacked the emotion that All in the Family had. Archie's Place became your basic sitcom and it didn't have anything that really set it off from anything else. It had it's moments, though. But I think Murray Klein (Martin Balsam) was the best character on the show.
