Season 8 will finally arrive in all its glory on March 18th I believe. I still can't understand why this show has taken so long to be put out on dvd. It is my husband's ABSOLUTELY FAVORITE SHOW!! And, I am very excited too as his vhs tapes are simply worn out. Here are the episodes from Season 8 as stated on IMDB:

1: A Tisket, a Tasket, Can Peg Make a Basket?
2: Hood in the Boyz
3: Proud to Be Your Bud?
The other Bundys think Bud has flipped out when they overhear his basement conversion with his 'cool' alter-ego who arrives from another universe and shows Bud the tactics on picking up women. Meanwhile, Al has a personal battle of his own with a voice-over phone service to order a purchase for a new spare part for the Dodge.
4: Luck of the Bundys
5: Banking on Marcy
6: No Chicken, No Check
7: Take My Wife, Please
8: Scared Single
9: No Ma'am
When Al and his friends get fed up with the women taking over their Giggly Room and their bowling night, thanks to both Jerry Springer and Marcy D'Arcy. They form a secret organization called No MA'AM and hold him hostage in his own show in an audience filled with men donning the No MA'AM shirts. They intend to perform television's first sexorcism which includes them forcing him in watching hours of pro-wrestling. They'll also force him to wear a stinky, yellow undershirt and a pair of boxers with the words "It's All Me" until the women who took over their Giggly Room and their bowling night comply to their demands.
10: Dances with Weezy
11: Change for a Buck
12: A Little Off the Top
Al is injured playing baseball with his friends, and ends up in the hospital needing surgery. Due to a mix-up at the hospital, however, Al ends up receiving a circumcision.

Like fine wine, the Bundy's got better with time (Ok, Ok the episodes with Seven in Season 7 were the exception).

Season 8 introduces "No Ma'am", the pose (you know - 4 touchdowns in a single game), and further character development past the Bundy and D'Arcy households. The Bundy's Dodge is featured in two episodes (Al needs a part and the 1,000,000 miles). Then there are more scenes at the shoe store. And finally, Al's football past is revisited.

What I like about this season is that the variety of Season 8 helps us understand - and lends background - to how the Bundy's became America's most laughed at and beloved (or reviled) family.

But if there is one episode of Season 8 that stands out, it is the "Luck of the Bundy's". Only people who are so used to suffering misfortune (like Al), and then see their luck turn around dramatically, can feel the gripping fear of sudden good fortune. Ed O'Neill's character plays this episode to the hilt.

What a season!!!

People are complaining that this season is getting cartoonish.. Is that supposed to be a bad thing?? This show was never meant to be Shakespeare. If this show had to evolve and change, it's at least in an entertaining way. This season we have No Ma'am, more episodes of Psycho Dad, more trips to the nudie bar, Big 'Uns magazine, more 'chicken' jabs at Marcy, and Al even gets to re-live football glory filling in (secretly) for an injured college player. I think the cartoonishness, including the falling stunt dummies, is hilarious. Some highlights include when Al carpools with fat women, the Village People show up and sing YMCA and get mugged by killer housewives, Al gets circumcised by accident, Kelly's boyfriend burns Peg's couch, Al has a chance at a free Dodge Viper, and Kelly's job as The Verminator results in Bud growing boobs. Yes, the plots are definitely getting more insane and cartoonish, but so what? How boring would No Ma'am be if all they did is sit around Al's house? If you want a tame, grounded-in-reality show, when has Married With Children ever been the answer? That's the direction the show was headed in anyway, and it makes it all the more entertaining. Al Bundy's facial expressions, lessons of wisdom, and "a fat woman Godzilla'd into the shoe store" stories are absolutely priceless. You can't listen to his lines and not laugh, such as "so when a fat woman thunders in, a pie wedged under each chin, I'm not supposed to ask if that's the star spangled banner she's belching, so I know whether to stand up or sit down?" That was when he was protesting political correctness.
In the next few seasons, Al will settle on Griff as a second sidekick and co-worker at the shoe store, No Ma'am will be in for more adventures, and Al & Marcy will continue to tangle. Here's hoping there's another release in 2008.

The eighth hilarious season of Fox's MARRIED...WITH CHILDREN introduces viewers to the all-male No Ma'am Club founded by Al Bundy(Ed O'Neill) and Jefferson D'Arcy(Happy Days alum Ted McGinley). The club members are either bachelors or husbands who are disgusted by their wives' demeanors/lifestyles. Afterall,Al doesn't often enjoy the company of his 22-year wife Peggy(Katey Sagal). In Jefferson's case,he's still madly in love with his wife,the former Marcy Rhoades(Amanda Bearse). I'm assuming that Jefferson co-founded the club primarily to give Al moral support. At every meeting,the members wear white T-shirts bearing the No Ma'am logo,which consists of the female symbol,encircled with a diagonal line over the symbol. But sometimes,Jefferson would enjoy the absence of his wife,but not as much as Al! Kelly(Christina Applegate),daughter of Al and Peggy,is still working as a roller-skating waitress which she began doing last season. Kelly's 19-year-old brother Bud(David Faustino),after a brief course in driving school instruction(degree required),takes a job at the DMV(Division of Motor Vehicles) as an instructor. I'll state for the record that Bud received his driver's license during season 5. I'm sure with Bud as an instructor,no one fails a driver's test! Jefferson still works as a waiter at a topless bar,which he began doing last season. As for the opening montage,there's still an instrumental theme similar to the late Frank Sinatra's 1955 hit recording LOVE & MARRIAGE. Reportedly,Sinatra's beneficiaries still refuse to let Sony Pictures continue using L&M. Many reviewers have commented on this,saying Sinatra's family is greedy which I don't believe is true. Possibly,the families of L&M's writers,Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen,are forbidding the continued use of the song.Read more ›
