Has anyone watched the satorially dysfunctional 80s television show
MARRIED WITH CHILDREN? This show was the total antithesis of the 1950s and early 1960s television shows. In this television show, the husband/father is an extremely disgruntled shoe salesperson, the wife/mother is a gadabout who really just does not care, the son is the only seemingly normal one, and the daughter is "extremely popular" with the boys and intellectually challenged. They JUST BARELY tolerate each other at the most.
The show was very popular and was on the air at FOX for about 11 years. One thing you left out was the wife always wanted sex from her husband who apparently saw it as another chore to be avoided at all cost. Ironically it outlasted shows like "The Cosby Show", "Family Ties", and "Growing Pains" from the 80s. The guy who played the husband/father on "Married With Children" is now on the hit show: "Modern Family" on ABC.
Trivia: Michael G. Moye one of the creators of Married With Children is an African American. He had written for shows such as The Jeffersons, Diff'rent Strokes, and Good Times. Michael and his co-creator for "Married With Children", Ron Leavitt are often credited for saving Fox Telivision who was at that time a struggling network.
Of course I watched it. Kelly Bundy was every teenage metalhead dork's dream girl back in the late 80s!!
Yes. It is still on in the early mornings. My husband and I get a few laughs out of it every now and again. Also, most of the seasons are on Netflix. At least, I believe so.
This has been & always will be one of my favorite shows ever! In their 11 year run there are no episodes I haven't seen dozens of times over. Peg is the most pure example of the anti-house wife. Bud/Grand Master B as he proclaims himself in a few episodes THINKS he is gods gift to women, but can't get a girl... then when he does the family never believes him.... and Kelly? Well.... she is the walking/ talking epitome of "dumb blond" for the most part.... and Al? Well.... The things I have learned from Al "4 touchdowns in a single game" Bundy have stuck with me to this day.... and because of him I end this e-mail with one thing to say.
"Hooters. Hooters. Yum-yum-yum...... Hooters. Hooters on a girl that's dumb"
I've have a vote as the best answer already?... In the not so immortal words of Al... GREAT CEASER'S GHOST! ........ and remember, its not so much that life passed me by so much as it sat on my head. (I ripped that off from Al as well, but oh well)
One can say that Peggy Bundy is the anti-Edith Bunker!
I still watch the Bundy's on late night TV. They were dysfunctional but you knew they were united when they all gathered together as a family and shouted, "Yeah Bundy"!!

I have been watching American Idol off and on this year, and I think the only thing I like is that Ellen is on. But, she isn't as much fun as I hoped she would be, but she does have her moments. The rest has just been...
