The Jeffersons: The Complete Fifth Season

The Jeffersons was a groundbreaking show during its time. It was the first show about a middle class black couple who have an interracial couple as friends. This was probably the most successful spin-off from the "All In The Family" series. Its popularity had a lot to do with Sherman Hemsley's loud-mouthed, bigoted and stubborn character of George Jefferson. Even though he is politically incorrect you will still find yourself laughing when George calls Harry a "honky" or Alan a "zebra who lost his stripes". On the more serious side the series also addressed such issues such as interracial marriages, male impotence, mental illness, and father-son relationships. The series did so well that it lasted 11 seasons.
