Archie Bunker in the Lock-up (1971)

In the show, Archie Bunker’s son-in-law and a neighbor are off to an anti-government protest in New York City. Meanwhile, the women in the family are horrified that US police officers will savagely beat them for protesting (sound familiar?), so they send Archie Bunker out to bring them back. This sort of thing happened all the time in America during the late 1960’s/early 70’s. Hilarious comedy and well worth viewing in its entirety on YouTube.

Suggestion: Substitute characters Michael amd Lionel for Green movement protesters, and Archie Bunker as an ardent supporter of President Ahmadinejad and the Islamic Republic. Some of the similarities are sure to surprise you!
