Perhaps the definitive episode of Married... with Children is near the end of the second season, when Al and Peg Bundy (Ed O'Neill and Katey Segal), pretending to be their recently married neighbors, go on a game show that tests how willing each newlywed is to torture their spouse. This episode has everything: The cascade of blithe insults, the cheerful shredding of all dignity, the outright celebration of humanity's worst instincts-- everything that has led self-satisfied arbiters of "culture" to proclaim Married... with Children the most sordid, distasteful sitcom in the history of mankind. In short, it's sheer genius.

As the petty, miserable, conniving, yet perversely vital Bundy family, O'Neill, Segal, Christina Applegate, and David Faustino give performances that walk a fine line between outrageous satire and painful truth. It's the anti-Cosby; family breeds contempt. Children scoff at their parents, parents resent their children, husbands and wives eye each other with suspicion and disdain. Episodes hinge on neutering their oversexed dog, fighting the phone company, and trying to humiliate a high school nemesis in a bowling tournament, but it's all an excuse for squalid delirium. This is not an ironic description of the show; Married... with Children is both ruthless and deeply funny. (Though created by men, Married... with Children was frequently produced, written, and directed by women, which is unusual in the sitcom world. This doesn't necessarily have anything to do with its sense of humor, but its eagerness to skewer and roast sacred cows is shared by such women-driven shows as Roseanne and Absolutely Fabulous.) The jokes are like blunt instruments, yet delivered with a unique panache that got honed to razor sharpness in the second season. If you've never experienced the Bundy clan, this is an excellent place to start. --Bret Fetzer

We need more people reviewing these DVD sets AFTER they've actually bought them. It's easy to review the show and say how great it was, but what about the quality of the DVDs, what about the extra features? Fine, the second season of Married With Children gets 4 out of 5 stars. It's a slight improvement over the first season, and still beats out some of the goofier/sillier/cartoonish later seasons (you know, for example, like where they show episodes about Kelly landing her own TV show in Hollywood, or where Al sees Aliens stealing his socks - the sort of outlandish - but still hilarious - stuff you'd NEVER see in these early seasons of the series).
As for the DVDs themselves, they're average looking. They aren't what you'd expect of top quality DVDs, but they are serviceable. It's not like you're expecting to watch a widescreen presentation of some awesome sci-fi or fantasy show that dwells on visuals. This is just a comedy, meant for laughs, and what you're seeing on these discs is better than what you'd record on VHS. They squeeze 22 episodes onto 3 discs, which is a tight fit. So there's noticeable compression in the overall look of the show, plus it's grainy and blurry at various times. But it's not so noticeable that it takes you out of the stories. You soon lose yourself in the laughter and forget about the so-so look of the picture.
The much talked about easter egg "bonus features" are simply unaired portions of the cast talking during the reunion special they aired in early 2003. Most of the clips are short, between 30 seconds to a minute. Sometimes it's interesting, sometimes it's like, "Huh?" But I hated the easter egg idea.

While the first season of Married with Children was excellent, the second season is when the show really got going! There is not a single bad episode in the lot. There is a major leap in terms of the comedy, plotlines, and the character development, as the show is quickly finding its identity. It is a must own for any MWC fan.
The episodes included are:
1. Poppy's by the Tree (Part 1) - The Bundy's take a vacation in beautiful Dumpwater, Florida (It is as run down as it sounds). At their hotel, they learn of the Axe Murderer that kills the tourists of the hotel they are staying at.
2. Poppy's by the Tree (Part 2) - Al must save Peg when she is kidnapped by the Axe Murderer
3. If I Were a Rich Man - Al goes to the bank with Steve. The day after, one million dollars is missing from the bank. Steve and the Family thinks Al is responsible for stealing the money.
4. Buck Can Do it - The Bundy's get threated with a lawsuit after Buck the dog, umm, gets friendly with another dog. This leads to the family contemplating getting Buck neutered
5. Girls Just Want to Have Fun (Part 1) - Marcy gets into a fight with Steve. To cheer her up, Peg takes her to a male strip club. There, Marcy loses her wedding ring when she stuffs a dollar into the stripper's pants
6. Girls Just Want to Have Fun (Part 2) - The stripper returns the wedding ring to Al, and gives it to Steve. He has to figure out how to approach Marcy about this
7. For Whom the Bell Tolls - A high phone bill causes Al to shut off the phone service in his house, which angers the family and their friends
8. Born to Walk - Kelly gets her license while Al fails his renewal test

Its fantastic that these are coming out. I hope season 3, 4, and 5 all come out within the next year or so. I picked this up the afternoon it came out, went home, and have been enjoying it over the past few nights. It brings back so much of what TV doesn't have today: great sitcoms that make you laugh. You didn't have to think when you watched the Bundy's, you just had to laugh. Tang Wipes, the physical humor, and how can you not laugh at Buck? The hidden easter eggs are outtakes from the reunion special, and while there are quite a few, most are just uninteresting. But the episodes are great. Especially the one where Al and Steve go looking for Marcies Barbie. Just the montage with the Glen Frey song "you belong to the city" is worth the whole price of the set. Go pick it up today, along with the new Tesla Cd, Into the Now!!!!

Better picture and sound. That's what it was hyped on, and that is what we must expect - AND GET.
Columbia/Sony's TV season releases are sub-par, especially in video quality.
I'm not here to praise the show. In its earlier years (the "Steve Rhoades" era) the show was funniest. Or maybe the Ted McGinley era was better. I dunno. Most seasons had their share of great episodes. But I taped a lot of MWC. Why should I buy the DVD, for $30? What should I be getting?
While it's nice to see company's logos look crisp and clear, it becomes a disappointment to see fuzzy TV show afterward. (there is a big difference between the quality of the master tapes/film and the transfer quality. The latter pertains to how the DVD image looks on your screen. Master tape quality is the condition of the tape (a degrading studio tape looks far different than a poor DVD transfer). Many tools and tricks are used to restore picture and sound quality, but all of that time and money spent to clean the episodes by the company is wasted if the DVD transfer is poor.)
Pity I can't post pics...
Season 1 wasn't all that great. For Columbia, it's pretty much standard. Bog standard.
I refuse to buy another Columbia/Sony TV series on DVD until they clean up their act OR make their prices reasonable. Not for the amount of money customers spend... (and just wait until you see these on HDTV...) Should Good Times season 2 be $30? Try $15. MWC season 2 being $34? Try $15 instead. Three's Company season 1 being $13? Try $6. OR give consumers and fans of these shows some RESPECT and push out high quality releases. We work for a living and if we don't put out good material, we get fired and blacklisted. Why should you expect any different treatment?
