Storyline

A slightly cleaner take-off of "Married with Children" with overstressed father Jack, whose life consists of a lousy job; a law-breaking, sex-starved wife; a skimpily dressing daughter with her eyes on an Ivy League school; an idiot son; and Mr Floppy, the epitome of Jack's raging schizophrenia, physically embodied in the form of a boozing, chain-smoking, perverse stuffed gray rabbit with whom Jack consults for advice in the rabbit's basement playpen, where Jack inevitably secludes himself. Written by Duke, corrected by Kiokya

Perhaps a Guilty Pleasure
21 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

Frankly Unhappily Ever After can be considered a guilty pleasure. The show esstentially played out on a trashy level (i.e. in terms of its seemingly inane storytelling) and perhaps the acting had a tendecy of being relatively amateurish. Unhappily Ever After tried to coast as far as it could in terms of references to popular culture and to a certain degree the show benefited from it. Perhaps that was the only thing the show had to fall back on but the references managed to come out on a frequent basis and were fairly interesting never the less. Perhaps Unhappily Ever After can considerably be labled as "low-rent satire." You're viewing something that's can be juvenile on a frequent basis but at the same time will make a fun out of numerous things in popular culture.
