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
Like I said in my season one DVD review, I don't feel like going off and complaining about the horrible picture or audio quality. Read morePublished on Aug. 8 2007 by D9230
DA BUNDYS WERE PART OF MY UP BRINGING AND THE EARLY SEASONS WERE DA BEST,SEASON 2 IS GOOD BUT PLEASE BRING OUT SEASONS 3 AND 4 BECAUSE THESE ARE PRIMO LAUGHS ALL DA TIME.Published on July 4 2004
Season 2 is not jam-packed with great episodes, but there are a few good ones. It's amusing that Kelly is pretty smart in the early going of the series. Read more
I have to agree with most of the other people out there who have wrote reviews. Married with Children is a classic sitcom the same as Andy Griffith or I Love Lucy.... Read morePublished on May 16 2004 by Ben Rhymer
I can't wait to have all the seasons in my hands. Why is it taking so long to have them all available? "Married With Children" is like "I Love Lucy"... a classic forever... Read morePublished on May 7 2004 by Minghia
This show is easily the best there's ever been. The later seasons tend to get a bit too silly and cartoonish, but the first ones are just terrific. Read morePublished on May 6 2004 by G. Kroener
