a breath of fresh air,
This review is from: Married With Children: First Season [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This show was originally titled 'not the Cosby's.' Considering the sentimentality of American sitcoms in the late 80s and networks insistence that 'life lessons' needed to be learned each episode you can fully understand why Married With Children was such a hit. This show cares about nothing other than the misery of Al Bundy. It is rude, obnoxious, world weary, depressed and hilariously funny. Al Bundy has more witty, cutting and insightful one liners than most sitcoms together. If you thought edmund blackadder was sarcastic....
This is an exaggerated, but fundamentally truthful, vision of married life and in spite of the bickering and family battles the love is evident. The beauty of MWC is the characters reluctance to express this love directly. Instead they exchange insults. This really is comedy at its irreverent best and it ran for 13 years. Check it out.
