What’s a family without a little dysfunction, right?
Depicting a modern day family on TV isn’t a new concept, but only a few fully grasped the chaos that ensues between parents and children. While The Brady Bunch and The Cosby Show often come to mind, it’s Married… with Children that shook up the cookie-cutter dynamic.
In 1987 the iconic series was introduced to the Bundy family and left a lasting impression for 11 hilarious and controversial seasons.

Ed played the head honcho of the family: Al Bundy.
Al is a semi-happily married father of two who often battles with his former glory days as an all-star football player and his current reality of being a women's shoe salesman. His favorite pastimes include going to strip clubs and drinking beer.

Again, Ed is playing the patriarch of the family. His life gets a little crazier when he marries his outspoken Colombian wife Gloria and becomes the step-father to her son Manny. The Pritchett family is full of quirky characters.
