Unforgettable, classic TV

'John en Marsha', humbly speaking, is the Philippines' answer to foreign family TV classics such as 'The Honeymooners', 'Bewitched', and the like.

JEM is the definitive family TV sitcom: poor and prudish man John (lovingly played by Dolphy) marries rich sweetheart Marsha (the late Nida Blanca) much to the dismay of the bride's doting mother Dona Delilah (Dely Atay-atayan). The situation escalates when John shelters his family in a dilapidated house, and he rejects all the financial help Dona Delilah insultingly gives the family.

Filipino audiences embraced 'John en Marsha' with open arms because it naughtily and lovingly reflected the life of the typical working class family during its time. Add to this the comical situations insults exchanged by John and Dona Delilah equals a weekly problem-buster for the entire family.

All other family sitcoms that came after JEM are imitations, solely because JEM already covered all aspects of the family sitcom. Being the classic it is, 'John en Marsha' will always be the best family sitcom ever seen on TV.

Now the question remains: when do we get to see episodes of this show on DVD?
