Married With Children is in my Top 3 list for favorite Shows of all time. Seinfeld and The Simpsons are among that group. I think I’ve seen every episode of MWC a few times each. I was saying to myself after watching the 1st season on DVD that I wish the 2nd season will hopefully get released soon and now it has! I hope Season 3 gets released quickly too!
From the 2nd season on is when the show got REAL GOOD. I think the 3rd & 4th seasons were my favorite though. The Bud Bundy mullet years if you will ha. There’s a lot of classic episodes in those seasons, but the 2nd season has quite a few classics as well. The Just Married…With Children episode is probably my favorite of the group. Seeing Al and Peggy torture each other and not give a crap is classic good fun! Putting a TON (no pun intended, yeah okay it was intended) of fat women on Al was brilliant. It’s cruel (For Al hahaha) but you have to laugh! Also funny episodes include Al has to use a bike since he got his license taken away, When Marcy loses her wedding ring down Zorro’s pants, Kelly trying sneak out to see a concert when they have to sleep in the shoe store, and when Al battles with a mouse. I could go on and on about how much I love this show.
Married With Children exceeded comedy boundaries and raised the bar on what you can on say on TV. I don’t know why people are so uptight when it comes to TV shows though. If you don’t like what’s being aired, don’t complain about it, just turn the damn channel! So what if they talk endless about sex, or lack thereof or about stealing, and other non ethical things. I find this stuff hilarious, and glad FOX decided not to kick the show off the air or anything just because of a bunch of housewives who had nothing better to do than to complain to TV networks all day.
But anyway, back to the DVD. The quality is better than the first season. It looks like it was cleaned up a little better but it still shows it’s age. The audio sounds fine too. Throughout the DVD, there’s 13 easter eggs featuring the cast reunion and them talking about the show, and particular episodes. They could have done a lot better job with the Extras but this DVD is a must buy for Married With Children Fans. The episodes alone is what’s going to make you want this DVD anyway.
