** The entire sitcom is transformed when you realize Archie isn't ''that'' bigoted. He just plays it up to annoy a son-in-law he despises. ** Supported by the fact that in ''Series/ArchieBunkersPlace'' Mike is gone and Archie has a Jewish business partner and a black maid. He loves his Jewish niece he is raising and he dates a Puerto Rican after Edith's death. He is still ignorant of other cultures and believes stereotypes but he isn't nearly as bigoted as he seemed when Mike was around.

Added DiffLines:
* HollywoodPudgy: In the episode "Archie's Weighty Problem," Archie is treated and talked to as if he is morbidly obese and will drop dead if he doesn't start seriously dieting immediately. He really only appears to be slightly overweight, with more of a stocky-framed, muscular build.

** Archie twice shows surprisingly progressive opinions on the fur trade, which is in deep contrast to the rest of his family, who in one early episode can't stop admiring Edith's mink coat --->'''Gloria:''' They bredd those animals, daddy. --->'''Mike:''' That's right, Arch mink is not an endangered species. --->'''Archie:''' Oh, geez. Them minks hangin' around your mother-in-law's neck out there, they'll be glad to hear that, that they ain't endangered, just murdered.

Added DiffLines:
* HarsherInHindsight: Archie's prank on Pinky Peterson in "Beverly Rides Again" involved Pinky's girlfriend breaking up with him. At the time it seemed pretty cruel but not outside of Archie's wheelhouse. Then in "The Draft Dodger" it's revealed that Pinky's only son was recently KIA in Vietnam. This pushes the prank into almost MoralEventHorizon territory.

* SeasonalRot: The episodes after the departure of Gloria and Mike more or less take all the tension out of the show and aren't as well liked. Cranked UpToEleven with the AfterShow ''ArchieBunkersPlace'' which saw Archie grow as a person and have a social circle full of ethnic diversity. Sure he was a nicer guy but comedy with a bunch of folks always getting long isn't exactly good television.

Added DiffLines:
* FridgeHorror: Archie was mentally and physically abused by his father, yet he remembered him admirably and spoke of him quite fondly in "Two's A Crowd." Would Archie be the same kind of father if he had a son instead of a daughter?

* ValuesResonance: The debates on political issues of the day between Archie and "Meathead" still seemed appropriate in the 2000s NickAtNite reruns.
