Editorial Reviews

America's most outrageous family comes to DVD!

First I'd like to say that I certainly understand why all the low ratings for this DVD. The stars don't go towards the show itself, but more towards the fact that this isn't a complete season and a lot of people were hoping for that. I understand and I admit I'm disappointed as well. However, I love the show and have absolutely no problem getting these DVDs for the meantime until they finally (and I know they will at some point) release the entire seasons.
Despite the obvious complaints, I was still able to enjoy this collection of Married with Children episodes. This really brings back the old memories, being that I used to watch this all the time when I was little. Now it's even more funnier being that I'm older and am now able to understand all of the jokes. And hey, who couldn't love Al Bundy?? The man rocks!
The DVD includes 5 episodes, 1 of them being a lost one that was deemed "too raunchy" for TV. The episodes are as follows: A Dump of My Own, You Better Shop Around Parts 1 and 2, No Chicken No Check, and I'll see you in Court. All of them are funny as hell, but my favorites have to be the two shopping episodes where the Bundy Family actually LIVE in the supermarket since it is a MUCH cheaper way of staying cool. (In fact, I would've paid the price just for those 2 episodes alone!) But they're all great, as far as I'm concerned. And they're not in any order, so some of the shows are older while others aren't as old.
The DVD really doesn't have much to offer, other than the picture looking very good for being television shows. There's a few bonus trailers, but even those aren't that spectacular. And, I wished that they would've included a few more episodes. 5 just isn't enough.
All in all, the "Married with Children Vol.

This set would've gotten 5 stars had it had It's A Bundyful Life featuring the late Sam Kinison & Ted McGinley playing (Norman Jablonsky, peg's husband). I hope it sells good so we might get season sets like they did with Friends.
5 Episodes including:
Episode #40. A Dump of My Own - Al plans on building his dream- an executive's type of bathroom in the garage.
Episode #45. I'll See You in Court - The Bundys and Rhoades are taped having sex at a hotel. Peggy and Steve decide to sue, but only the Rhoades get money. **This episode never aired in the U.S. because FOX considered it too controversial, although it aired out of the U.S. several times. The cable channel FX has aired this episode on June 18, 2002 after years of being unaired in American syndication due to its controversial content (i.e., the hotel videotaping couples in their private moments). This UNAIRED episode was finally aired on the FX cable channel on June 18, 2002 at 8:30 central.**
Episodes #101 & 102. You Better Shop Around - The Bundys move into a grocery store when Al doesn't want to pay for an air condtitioner. They cut in front of Marcy at the checkout stand and win the $1,000 shopping spree prize for beign the millionth customers. The Bundys and D'Arcys face off to see who can spend the $1,000 shopping spree first. Meanwhile, Bud and Kelly bother the beaver store mascot (Jerry Mathers as Himself).
Episode #163. No Chicken, No Check - Kelly and Bud save their money to buy a car they can share. Also Bundy trival buffs know Bud's middle name "Franklin" is revealed in this episode.

As said by everyone who is smart enough to know that this is the greatest sitcom of all time: THIS SHOW NEEDS SEASON BY SEASON SETS.
Now, while greedy executives and foul bureaucrats do push these lame "best of" collections in the hopes of squeezing more blue-collar blood out of our wallets, these "best ofs" also serve another purpose.
Yes, this is an attempt to get more bread out of us. It's the George Lucas trick (first release Star Wars, then Star Wars with extra footage, then Star Wars in widescreen with extra footage, then Star Wars with even more footage just made up, then Star Wars with everything plus a plush toy of George Lucas with money in his hands and going "yippie-yippie").
However, these "best ofs" also serve to test out the market for this title. If MWC "best ofs" sell well then the fat cats will release season boxes because they will see that it is profitable. Sure, we fans known it would sell, we recall that MWC was a huge sucsess, but these producers have short memories, they only understand the profitability of immediate trends. They have no respect for classics the way that we do.
So we have a catch 22 here. Buy it and you are giving in to marketing ploys. Don't buy it and you may be dooming the world's MWC collections to home-recorded television reruns only.
In all likelyhood this show, and every show that was ever sucsessfull, will eventually come out in season by season sets.
But for now this is what we get (and Most Outrageous Volume 2 is in the works as I write this).
As for the disc itself, it does feature very little, but the episodes themselves are well picked. They are some of the greatest, funniest MWC episodes ever. I will at least give the DVD that.
You'll just have to decided for yourself about this purchase.
