Rated TBC by the BBFC


American domestic comedy series from the late '80s. Set in the suburbs of Chicago, 'Married with Children' aimed at being the antithesis of the safe, wholesome, comedy shows on offer at the time, epitomised by 'The Cosby Show'. Al Bundy (Ed O'Neill) is a low-paid shoe salesman, chauvinist and patriarch to his dysfunctional family. His wife Peggy (Katey Sagal), hates housework, cooking and anything else that gets in the way of her make-up regime and appalling fashion sense. Daughter Kelly (Christina Appelgate) likes to help out her fellow pupils with their sex education, and little brother Bud (David Faustino) is a criminal-in-waiting. Episodes include: 'Pilot', 'Thinergy', 'But I Didn't Shoot The Deputy', 'Whose Room Is It Anyway?', 'Have You Driven A Ford Lately?', 'Sixteen Years And What DoYou Get?', 'Married. Without Children', 'The Poker Game', 'Peggy Sue Got Work', 'Al Loses His Cherry', 'Nightmare On Al's Street', 'Where's The Boss?' and 'Johnny B.Gone'.
