"... On Fox's Married ... With Children, which began as a cleverly bawdy parody of the saccharine family sitcoms of the 1950's but has become, in the many critic's opinions, an over-the-top parody of itself. 'We don't have any sort of deep philosophical reason for joking about sex,' says Ron Leavitt, the creator of the show. 'Our intention was just to subvert the genre of squeaky-clean family entertainment.'" Again, what a terrific, eye-opening admission of the hidden agenda behind today's TV shows. At the time of writing the show, of creating it, the writers and producers wanted to "subvert" the normal family values. How much more clear can it get, my friends?
"After 10 seasons ... even the character's outrageousness has become predictable. The few jokes that don't refer to the sexual habits of the characters (a sexually frustrated mother, a prematurely ejaculating father, a slutty daughter, a sleazy son) revolve around their bad personal hygiene." Is this the picture of the 'normal' family today? The mother is sexually frustrated because the father prematurely ejaculates, the daughter is "slutty" which means she has sex with just about anyone, and the son is "sleazy" which means the same thing. What a difference from the "Leave It To Beaver" and "Father Knows Best" depictions of the 'typical' family in the 1950's. Oh, how far we have fallen!
