The Formans have a garage sale to earn some extra cash. Hyde doesn't have anything to sell, so he bakes "special brownies" to sell; Kitty, Red, Bob and Midge eat some of the brownies unsuspectingly. ...
Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
Eric Forman is a typical high school student growing up in Wisconsin in 1976 with his family and his friends. Together, they have the same kind of joys and sorrows that just about every teenager has while growing up. This show parodied many of the attitudes, events and fads of the 70s, along with those who grew up at the time.Written by

Lisa Robin Kelly (Laurie) abruptly vanished following the second season, and was cut from the opening credits by the start of season three. Some sources claim she left on her own initiative, others that she was fired, despite being quite a popular character on the show, so there are two very different stories out there about her departure. She returned back to the show toward the end of the fifth season, and appeared in a few episodes, only to disappear again at the beginning of the sixth season, and then was replaced by Christina Moore. Just over ten years after Kelly's last episode as Laurie, Kelly died from multiple drug intoxication (an overdose). See more »

Unlike the 70s sitcom it sometimes mocks (Happy Days), this show has no peaks and valleys, and never "jumped the shark". It's just a rock solid, funny show and has been for the duration of its run (so far). I have watched just about every episode since the beginning, and have never been let down. It's an extremely underrated show which could reach ledgendary status if it runs for a few more years. Everyone in the cast is very funny and endearing in their own way. The best thing is that they never stray from the original characterizations. And you never doubt for a minute that you're back in the seventies, unlike Happy Days, which was set in the 50s yet much of the cast (Scott Baio anyone?) sported contemporary haircuts. This show is a gem. Watch. You won't be disappointed.
