Archie's Aching Back (#1.3)
7 March 2016 | by rbrooksie12See all my reviews

Upon coming home from his work driving the cab, Archie reveals to the rest of the family that he was involved in an accident that was nothing serious. However, after hearing Lionel Jefferson's parents opened up a dry-cleaning store with the money they won in a lawsuit, Archie decides to pretend to be hurt to see if he could receive some money.

This episode so far out of the first three is probably the worst. While Archie has his usual funny prejudiced lines, the other three characters do not really shine as much as they did in the first two episodes of this series. Although this was not a bad episode by any means, it was sure not as funny as "Meet the Bunkers" or "Writing the President" was.
