I found another good one. Check out the outfit: homie was a "PUA" before PUAs existed.

I remember it was one of the few things my dad and I did together and looked forward to. Watching Al on Sunday evenings. You know, he scored 4 touchdowns in one game.

Greatest sitcom of all time! Bar none. No way in hell the material they allowed would be made today. What does that tell you about how the climate has changed?

And I don't think there's a teen that grew up in the early 90s that didn't rub one off thinking about Christina Applegate!

RE: Al Bundy
One of the pioneers of the contemporary manosphere, in my opinion. One pattern I notice is everyone saying they bonded with their dad watching this show. Same exact situation here. The show had mass appeal.

The appeal even goes beyond inter-generational--My father had friends who didn't even speak ENGLISH, and when they were around, they knew the show and would have to sit down and watch it with us, dying of laughter the whole time.

As others have said, show was WAY beyond its time, and the more that traditional family values are oppressed in the United States, the more I think of this show and how what was supposed to be an extreme caricature has amazingly become quite close to millions' of poor dudes' daily realities.

RE: Al Bundy
When I was a kid, my dad would allow me to stay up a bit longer to watch Al Bundy with him. He still thinks it´s the best series ever made. It also royally pissed off my mum, she hated the show.
She always told my dad "that´s not a show kids should see". His answer: "No, it´s a show for MEN. Now leave us alone and be quiet, woman!".
Best father-son bonding, haha. Also, whenever she told me to help her with some boring household chores I used to say "No Ma´am!" and my dad burst out laughing. I had to do it anyway.
Al Bundy was his last refuge of manliness.

Oh, and it took me some time to realize that I didn´t understand about 75% of the jokes. Angel

RE: Al Bundy
Haha, spot on, Celtic. I had the exact same experience.

The earlier seasons were a lot less cynical (like season 1 or so) and usually had a mostly-happy resolution like a normal sitcom. I guess the writers started pushing the envelope.

Edit: if you want to watch some episodes online, Hulu has all of season 3 for free -- http://www.hulu.com/marriedwith-children

RE: Al Bundy
I remember being 11, 12 years old, around 1995-1996.

I grew up in a typical two-parent North American household; my parents, god love them, had their own shit to deal with, though I found out a while back that it wasn't anything unusual; my dad, making close to six figures, had to put his money into the pool...my mom, making about 55k? My dad's money was 'our' money, but what she made (and it was nothing insubstantial)? That was 'her' money.

My dad, bless his beta heart, would watch it a bit with me when I was even younger, but the henpecking and nagging of my mother must have got to him; I had to seek it out on myself (thankfully this was in the era of the rise of the digital channel guide)

I used to sneak into the basement (and I miss that finished basement, I loved that finished basement; awesome sofas, a fireplace, a big TV, quiet and very-possibly noise-proofed with suitable ambiance...at least 15 girls have screamed and wailed down there while one or both of my parents slept 30 feet away...), around 10 PM, and on OFMT (I think it's called OMNI TV now), I'd bomb a classic Simpsons at 10, a classic King of the Hill at 10:30, the pithy nightlife report that ended at 11:07 and then, Married with Children, which always cracked me up.

I didn't fully understand why I laughed my ass off then, but I do now. As soon as I get my own pad, with a killer system, I'm heading to Amazon to buy the complete series.

And Christina Applegate...yeah I'd still fuck her, but only if I'd exhausted every and any available leads, but Kelly Bundy? Shit yeah.
