Remembering a Legend

According to The Washington Post, Lear revolutionized the sitcom genre by infusing it with thought-provoking social commentary and hilariously blunt dialogue. He introduced us to unforgettable characters like Archie Bunker, Fred Sanford, Maude Findlay, and George Jefferson, who became archetypes of comedy and social satire.
