Archie Gives Blood (#1.4)
8 March 2016 | by rbrooksie12See all my reviews

This episode of "All in the Family" centers around Mike donating blood for a blood drive. During a game of Monopoly, Mike tries to persuade Archie to go to the drive and donate blood with him. However, Archie is worried that the person who would get his blood will not be the same race as him. Finally, after arguing for a while, Archie decides to go donate blood.

This episode again like "Meet the Bunkers" features a lot of funny lines from Archie, especially during the part of the episode in which the characters play Monopoly. This was a great improvement over the last episode because Edith, who barely had a role in the previous one, has quite a few good moments in which she shines through. Also, Lionel, who we were introduced to in "Meet the Bunkers" has some great moments with Archie during the second half of the episode. Overall, this was a good episode.
