    The best comedy sitcom ever. Frank starts it off and then it's Al, Peg, Kelly, and Bud. with the neighbors Marcy and Steve, Jefferson. Off to the nudie bar for some fun.

    I heard they're filming a reunion episode.

    I had a HUGE crush on Kelly.

    A quick search finds it missing from most Top 25 lists. I'm stunned. Not really. ;)

    Was the funniest for me! Probably could recite dialogue from those shows, like I can for Star Wars...

    I have to admit I still watch the re runs. I think I've seen every episode.

    My wasted life. I'm off to The Jiggly Room. :wave :hide

    That's because your subscription to "Big Uns" ran out.

    It absolutel could be aired today, it is in syndication. The difference is many will no longer accept Al as some kind of folk hero

    Loved the show. I was a kid not allowed to watch it so I snuck a recording when I could and watch when my folks weren't home.

    They don't make em like that anymore! I remember watching that, 21 Jumpstreet and Tracey Ullman on this new (to me at least) edgy network called FOX.

    He'd be more of a folk hero now than back in the day, as men of his ilk are in increasingly shorter supply. Or at the very least he'd be a curiosity.

    Based on what I have seen posted on TGP over the years, I'm not at all convinced that men like Al Bundy are in short supply.

    don't want to take this thread in the wrong direction but: "married" was the only tv show i witnessed that was spoken up against in church. just another feather in Fox's cap.
    i don't recall seeing a bad or boring episode. hated to see it end.

    It was reasonably entertaining ftmp but not even close to the best sitcom ever...

    The irony of this thread for me is Ed O'Neill is in one of the funniest (IMO) sitcoms around - Modern Family.

    "Connie Bender. Bring a friend, it won't offend her."

    "Peggy Wanker. It's OK boys, you don't have to thank her."

    I loved that episode...

    He also hated the Al Bundy character. He came into the shop one day after MWC was cancelled and I said "Mr. O'Neill, the boss and I are huge fans of your work." and he kinda looked pissed off for a second until the boss says "Yeah, we just loved you in Ford Fairlane". He looked relieved, smiled and started singing and dancing "Booty Time" for us right in the store... Another time he told me that he was glad "that other show" ended because he was sick and tired of playing that buffoonish character...
