Jefferson was a show about a time and season that I would just as soon forget. Jefferson might have been Black but the writers where White and it showed. I found it sometime fery not funny and sometimes painful to watch. I was a different time and a different season.

Now jefferson on All IN The Family was very funny. Bunker could Not be on TV Today with New Shows. We would Not Stand for nor allow what went on in that show to be filmed today. But for its time and season it was very funny.

The Jefferson and Bunker characters made fun of bigotry, prejudice, crazy family dynamics and made us all take a look how we were thinking and living. It was an important part of society's transition. Now we need a show that mocks the over-PC society we've become!
