Product Description

Loud-mouthed. Obnoxious. More vulgar than ever. We wouldn't have them any other way. Make room on the couch for Married With Children: The Complete Fourth Season, another hilarious helping of demented domestic dysfunction as only as the comically crude Bundys can deliver. Loaded with 23 envelope-pushing episodes on a three-disc collector's set, this deluxe collector's edition features uproarious classics like "Hot Off the Grill," "Dead Men Don't Do Aerobics," and special two-parter "It's A Bundyful Life," as Al, Peg, Kelly and Bud manage to turn domestic bliss into a battlefield, while nosy neighbor Steve finally leaves Marcy and the 'burbs for good! Starring Katey Sagal ("8 Simple Rules"), Christina Applegate (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy), and Ed O'Neill (Spartan) and sexy guest stars like Traci Lords, Tiffany Amber Thiessen, and Ted McGinley, Married With Children: The Complete Fourth Season reminds us why those darn Bundys are too hot to handle after all these years!

It's fitting that the producers of Married...With Children--The Complete Fourth Season were too cheap to pay for the rights to the show's classic theme song, the jaunty Sinatra tune "Love & Marriage," replacing it with some crappy instrumental. Not because the season is lousy--on the contrary, the show's crass and cynical wit is in full bloom--but because if the Bundys themselves were putting this out, they'd blow off the theme song as well. One of the longest-running sitcoms ever, Married...With Children portrayed American domestic life as bitter, sleazy, and perpetually hungry, yet bound together by the loyalty of the mutually damned. Emasculated shoe salesman Al Bundy (Ed O'Neill, Dutch, Spartan), his lazy and unsatisfied wife Peg (Katey Sagal, 8 Simple Rules), his dimwitted slut of a daughter Kelly (Christina Applegate, Anchorman, View from the Top), and his horny, conniving son Bud (David Faustino, The Trouble with Frank) all bicker and scheme to achieve any meager improvement of their lives. For example, Peg wants to buy an idol of Tubro, the fat Panamanian god of money, hoping that good luck will help her win the lottery; so she sells Al's beloved Playboy collection, launching Al into the depths of despair until he musters the shreds of his manhood and orders her to retrieve them. Or when Al, feeling suicidal on Christmas, gets a glimpse of how happy his family would be if he'd never been born and decides to live to keep their lives as awful as his has been. But it's not simply the parade of suburban atrocity that makes the show funny--it's the zest of the cast, who wallow in their white trash characters with gusto and commitment. Their glee gives the show a sardonic bite that transforms the squalor into something strangely giddy and transcendent, a vivisection of human pettiness that an 18th century novelist like Thackeray would appreciate. The fourth season features a startling array of guest stars, including Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element), Joe Flaherty (SCTV), Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (Beverly Hills 90210), screaming comedian Sam Kinison, and former porn starlet Traci Lords. --Bret Fetzer

2) Dead Men Don't Do Aerobics - Peggy wins a week with Jim Jupiter, the healthiest man in Chicago.

3) Buck Saves the Day - Bud and Kelly attempt to raise money to attend a concert.

4) Tooth or Consequences - Excruciating pain has Al going to Marcy's dentist and finds out that he likes his assistant.

5) He Ain't Much, But He's Mine - Peggy thinks Al is more attractive after a visit to the beauty parlor.

6) Fair Exchange - Al and Peggy get $500 to house a foreign exchange student and Kelly becomes jealous of her popularity.

7) Desperately Seeking Miss October - Peggy sells Al's Playboy collection.

8) 976-SHOE - Al gets a $50K loan from Steve so he can have his shoe hot-line (Dr. Shoe), it turns out to be a bust and Steve gets fired.

9) Oh, What A Feeling - Al is looking to buy a new car and has been saving and hiding his money in the backyard. When he looks in the box his money almost gone and he finds a "red" hair.

10) At the Zoo - Steve is supposed to be looking for a job but he is spending his time at the zoo and the aquarium.

11 & 12) It's a Bunduful Life (Part 1 & 2) - In this 2 part episode, Al can't get to the bank in time to get money to buy Christmas presents and in an "It's A Wonderful Life" type scenario, Al finds out what it would be like if he had never been born.

3.0 out of 5 stars Set contains 7 Syndicated episodes August 26, 2005
Well Sony blew it with this set.7 episodes are the syndication episodes-Edited! Yes i'm planing on buying this set,because not all the episodes will be cut,just 7-I would not mind if it was 1 or 2 episodes,but 7!! that is dumb! 5 stars for the show,3 stars for this DVD release.
Update-go to to find out why Sony use Syndicated episodes on the 7 episodes.Also if you bought the 2 best of sets of Married...with Children keep it, as it contains the uncut episode of Raingirl,one of the episodes that gets the syndication treatment in the season 4 set.

3.0 out of 5 stars They're really testing our paitence... August 31, 2005
I thought there was no way they could top themselves with the release of the Third Season DVD by changing the opening and closing credits music. However, I've got to hand it to them, they managed to figure out a way to make us hate them even more... Syndicated episodes! Seven syndicated episodes that have been edited down and they include;

0402 - Dead Men Don't Do Aerobics
0403 - Buck Saves the Day
0410 - At the Zoo
0414 - Rock and Roll Girl
0416 - You Gotta Know when to Hold 'Em, Part 1
0421 - Peggy Made a Little Lamb
0419 - Rain Girl <- This episode is available uncut in on another DVD set.

Now Sony's excuse states that the uncut prints didn't have enough audio tracks to edit the theme so they had to go back to their syndicated episodes. But come on... It's 2005, how hard can it be just to slap some new music over the theme without changing the episode? Couldn't Sony have just used the intro and closing theme footage from the syndicated episodes and slap them on the uncut prints? What kind of operation are they running over at Sony? Someone's being lazy...

As for the episodes themselves, they're great. Five stars all the way. The series had already established themselves by season three and in this season the show goes off in an even more goofy tangent. Some highlights of the season concern Marcy's dead aunt's ashes, Al's shoe hotline, and Steve's stunt at a zoo. There's cameos by Milla Jovovich, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen and an awesome appearance by the late, great Sam Kinison. So now I'm just left wondering, how will Sony top themselves for Season Five? Perhaps they could put a small SONY watermark on the bottom corner of the screen during the episodes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Show, Horrible Rip-Off DVD set August 30, 2005
By rawk
I love this show more than most people should love a show. I'm a hardcore fan with No Ma'am and Property of Polk High t-shirts and a framed Christina Applegate poster from 1990. I love this show and that is why I am so appalled at how seven of the episodes in this set (including the Christmas classic It's a Bundyful Life) are cut episodes, aka syndicated cut shows!


I am outraged that this set claims to be the complete fourth season when it is edited. Edited and complete are f**king antonyms!!!! This is flagrant false advertising!

Sure, it's good that the set didn't get the royal flush job that ROSEANNE did, a set that contains nothing but syndication butchered episodes, but nonetheless this is a let down. The other MWC sets, though seriously lacking in special features, at least contained the complete seasons (minus the opening theme on set three). Even the insipid little "Most Outrageous Episodes" discs contained uncut episodes, some of which re-appear on the season four set in cut form. What the heck is that?!?!?!

It's been explained that since Sony can no longer afford/are to cheap to afford to the rights to the "Love and Marriage" song, they've had to dig deep to search for various audio tracks, including dialouge tracks from the originals that were lost. They did, however, have the cut reruns tracks, so they used them. Rather than piece together a mix with new music, they just left the scenes out. They didn't even include them as rough deleted scenes in a bonus section. Well this is a stretch for me. How come the episode "Raingirl" is in uncut form on the "Most Outrageous" disc two but is cut on the season set? And "Love and Marriage" isn't playing in the course of the episode either, so that isn't the problem.

There is nothing on the box to indicate that any episodes are shortened. I would say to call it "the COMPLETE" Fourth Season" does in fact constitute false advertising. Perhaps if a complaint were to be filed with the Department of Consumer Affairs (or whatever agency... Read More
