Married with Children the Complete 2nd Season
(3 Disc Set)

Probably one of the highlights of American TV is the series "Married with Children" that stars Ed O'Neil as the delightful yet politically incorrect Ed Bundy and Katey Segal as Peg, the stereotyped lazy housewife who revolves around sexual innuendo and one-liners to her husband about his inability to please. They consider themselves the "normal" family where the father works, the mother is the homemaker and they have two children and a dog.

Christina Applegate also stars as Kelly, their eldest daughter with David Faustino as Bud, their youngest. Airing from 1987 to 1997, this is one of the longest comedy series to run in the US and is an Emmy and Globe nominated series that upon viewing this entire series, it's quite unbelievable how much of the content was aired due to its political incorrectness.

This may also be a blight upon how society has changed to the extreme but Married with Children is a true insight into a much more simpler time. The comedy is quite risqué, clichéd and quite stereotypical at times but this is what the magic of the series is all about and the relationships between each family member.

Christina Applegate plays the dumb blue-eyed blonde who happens to be in a different relationship each day, whereas her brother Bud played by the entertaining David Faustino is your classic young teenager who cannot "score" with girls and is always the butt of the families joke.

Most episodes end with Al reluctantly being led to the bedroom by Peg as he must perform the "deed" and even seen so many time, it is still a pleasure to watch his sour face as he is carted away.

The episodes however are quite diverse and entertaining, whether it's the family going on a budget holiday or an episode based on the family dog Buck who is about to neutered for impregnating all the female dogs in the neighborhood, it's classic comedy.

The series also features their Neighbours Marcy (Amanda Bearse) and Steve (David Garrison) with Marcy wearing the pants in that relationship, however Steve always pretends it is the other way around until he gets caught. At the end of the day, it's classic American TV that even though it's considerably quite old in terms of television series, the comedy dates rather well and I still enjoyed myself watching the entire series, maybe a little more so as I now understand the innuendos even better. With 13 episodes, there is little to complain about this classic collection.
