    RIP Norman Lear

    101 is a pretty good run. I didn’t know he did a Latino reboot of All in the Family a few years ago.

    A legend. I grew up with All In The Family and loved every minute of it. Boy the way Glen Miller played. 101 is a full life, for sure.

    Even if his hits were Brit rip offs, Norman Lear WAS 1970s American TV - for better or worse.

    Thanks for the laughs as well as the Hmmmm, moments.

    RIP Norman.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    the original Hom(er)age was great but Lears cameo and comment here took it up a notch years later.



    RIP man who defined my childhood in many ways

    He and Lucille Ball brought more diversity (awareness-wokeness) to television than anyone else in the 60s and 70s. And Lear did so in hilarious fashion!

    My father in law was Archie bunker. So I guess that means I married Gloria.

    101 is amazing and he was still doing stuff like the Live productions of AITF, Good Times, Facts of Life, etc during covid

    The Latina reboot was One Day at a Time (w Rita Moreno) not AITF btw

    Amazing list of hits and characters. Truly an icon of entertainment and keen observer

    Plus he had a cool hat
