masterpiece
24 July 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In my opinion, a masterpiece of television writing, quite likely the best "Married" ever. Almost every line made me laugh. Sam Kinison as Al's "Guardian Angel" was great, he was perfect- dealing with the existential question; What is the purpose of my life?...What would the life of my family and friends be like if I never existed?... a great truthful twist on the original Christmas movie; "It's a Wonderful Life"

  • Of course, in Al Bundy's interpretation, it's a horrible life.




A television masterpiece of comedy writing.

I doesn't get much better than this, right up there with the Seinfeld "masturbation" episode, or the "Hello Ball?" Honeymooners...
