Married with Children

Comedy
 

Married... with Children follows the lives of Al Bundy, a once glorious high school football player turned hard-luck women's shoe salesman; his obnoxious wife, Peggy; their attractive, promiscuous, and clueless daughter, Kelly; and their girl-crazy, wisecracking son, Bud. Their neighbors are the upwardly-mobile Steve Rhoades and his feminist wife Marcy, who later gets remarried to Jefferson D'Arcy, a white-collar criminal who becomes her "trophy husband" and Al's sidekick.

  • Howard Rosenberg

    The scripts are one-line oriented and sometimes an ugly howl, and the central characters are perfectly cast. The growly O'Neill and Sagal -- who has a terrific mincing walk that she may have picked up from her days as one of Bette Midler's Harlettes -- were born to insult and perform bowling-ball humor. [4 Apr 1987, p.C1]

  • Robert P. Laurence

    Fresh, sharp and witty...It certainly offers a brisk antidote to the syrupy sentimentality that has lately taken over "The Cosby Show." It's "The Honeymooners" with an '80s spin, a sardonic look at a couple who love each other -- except for when they don't. [5 Apr 1987, p.TV-6]

    San Diego Union-Tribune Full Review
  • Clifford Terry

    A lead-footed imitation of that fine old radio show, "The Bickersons," which featured Don Ameche and Frances Langford, Married . . . with Children spotlights still another couple trading verbal tweaks and brusque banter. [3 Apr 1987, p.5]

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • John J. O'Connor

    Loud, coarse and life-of-the-party vulgar...Pure blue-collar shtick, dressed up with the usual sexual-potency and bathroom jokes. [3 Apr 1987, p.30]

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Tom Shales

    A nasty-minded, overacted and poorly cast sitcom, Married ... With Children gets the schedule off on a rousing limp. [4 Apr 1987, p.C1]
