Peg and Al have been together, for better or worse, for more than two decades. How they survive their relationship is the basis for "Married...With Children." The sitcom represents a distinct departure from the saccharine-sweet television families viewers have known since the days of "Father Knows Best." With unflinching honesty, "Married... With Children" paints a painfully funny picture of a not-so-typical middle-class American family.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment hasn't announced the title yet, but an Amazon pre-order listing
went up today for Married... with Children - The Complete Series
on DVD! All 11 seasons of the show are already available separately, as Sony has released them as season sets between October 2003 and October 2009. But this will be the first time the entire run of the show has been offered all together!
The sitcom debuted in April 1987, and has been considered by many to be THE key part of the Fox Network's original primetime line-up. The cast of the show, set in Chicago, was Ed O'Neill (Modern Family
) as "Al Bundy," Katey Sagal (Sons of Anarchy, Futurama
) as "Peg Bundy," Christina Applegate (Samantha Who?, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
) as "Kelly Bundy," David Faustino (Star-ving
) as "Bud Bundy," Amanda Bearse as next-door-neighbor "Marcy," David Garrison as her first husband "Steve Rhodes" and Ted McGinley (Hope & Faith, Happy Days, The Love Boat
) as her second husband "Jefferson D'Arcy."
Since Sony hasn't officially announced Married... with Children - The Complete Series
, we must currently depend on Amazon's release listing for our information. The e-tailer shows the package art shown below, and is accepting pre-orders at a (nicely!) discounted cost based on a list price of $250.95 SRP. The ship date currently shown, though, appears to be off: it says November 29th
at the moment, but that's a Monday. DVDs that sell at general retail always have street dates that fall on a Tuesday, so this one appears to be off somewhat. We've requested clarification on this from the studio, but we haven't gotten the answer back from them yet. Stay tuned, though, and we'll update you further as more about this title becomes clear!
