Script vs Screen

Ep. 28 - s3e3 - Married w Children

February 9, 2016

As it is the case with our third episode we take a look back at a retro show, and we are delighted to take a look at the Fox Network juggernaut show Married with Children. It helped make stars out of Ed O'Neil, Katey Sagal, and Christina Applegate. Looking back it is almost hard to believe a show about a dysfunctional white trash family became so popular. But with such a strong cast, and a really lowest common denominator type of humor - jokes that included light misogyny, fat-shaming, and slutty blond references.  Incredibly, it all worked into a fun, highly popular show.
