Classic honest American Comedy
Married with Children allowed America to laugh at its own shortcomings, failures, and family dysfunction, and that was a VERY good thing. The sit-coms of the fifties set impossible standards with the mother figure serving breakfast, hair coffered, and wearing pearls. This was completely and utterly dishonest. Sweet perhaps, but non-existent.
Married with Children WAS honest, to a fault, and it was hilarious. Two dimensional characters, so predictable, yet we tuned in every week to see what unbelievable stupidity they would “do” now.
By any standard that I know, any television show that ran for over a decade HAD to, by definition be good, very, very good. And Married with Children exceeded that benchmark, and in such a delightfully crass, crude, tasteless way.
Loved every vulgar moment. In short, the show was so “bad” it has earned the right to be called CLASSIC.
