In reply to: The show's glory years were about the first 3 seasons, after that it was pablum. 's message, ""Archie Bunker" was one of those characters who should have faded away after about 7-8 seasons. But 13 seasons, and mutliple retoolings, its endings were forgetable." on Friday, June 21, 03:49:34pm

O'Connor obviously got past that with the TV version of "In the Heat of the Night."

A saddened Norman Lear actually called Stapleton to ask if it was OK to kill off Edith Bunker, who pointed out that she was a fictional character. His response: "Not to me, she isn't."

I'd think most performers would love to be associated with a character. (NT)Stapleton seemed to think she was better than most others...Saturday, June 22, 10:06:09am
