Amazingly Christina Applegate Bouncing Up & Down Is Not The Best Thing In This Episode
31 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another 10/10 episode of "Married With Children" in season five.

Plot In A Paragraph: Al cannot afford to buy an air conditioner for the hot summer. After an attempt to install an old experimental model, (which results in a neighbourhood blackout) Al moves his family into the local supermarket.

Ed O'Neil is one again the star of the show as Al Bundy. Whilst all the cast are great, it's O'Neil who holds it all together. Katey Sagal is fun as Peggy. The gorgeous Christina Applegate has never looked better, and she looks superb bouncing about in her pink bikini. David Faustino is at his brilliant best as pervy Bud. No Ted McGinley as Jefferson, Amanda Bearse has two scenes as Marcy

Season 5 of Married With Children is the show at the height of it's greatness.
