Maude: The Election (S5EP7)

The Election: The eve of the national election offers more than political worries for Maude as she meets Carol’s latest boyfriend.

about the show

Maude is an American television sitcom that was originally broadcast on the CBS network from September 12, 1972 until April 22, 1978. Maude stars Bea Arthur as Maude Findlay, an outspoken, middle-aged, politically liberal woman living in suburban Tuckahoe, Westchester County, New York with her fourth husband, household appliance store owner Walter Findlay.

Maude embraced the tenets of women’s liberation, always voted for Democratic Party candidates, strongly supported legal abortion, and advocated for civil rights and racial and gender equality. However, her overbearing and sometimes domineering personality often got her into trouble when speaking out on these issues.

The program was a spin-off of All in the Family, on which Beatrice Arthur had first played the character of Maude, Edith Bunker’s cousin; like All in the Family, Maude was a sitcom with topical storylines created by producer Norman Lear. Unusual for a U.S. sitcom, several episodes featured only the characters of Maude and Walter, in what amounted to half-hour “two-hander” teleplays. Season 4’s “The Analyst” was a solo episode for Bea Arthur, who delivered a soul-searching, episode-length monologue to an unseen psychiatrist.
