    The Family That Put FUN in Dysfunction Returns!

    MARRIED…WITH CHILDREN:
    The Complete Fourth Season
    Debuts on DVD on August 30, 2005

    The Season Where Steve Finally Decides to Chuck It All and Leave Marcy and the 'Burbs…

    Culver City, Ca. (June 20, 2005) – Television’s favorite dysfunctional family returns August 30 with the fourth season from the classic 1980s sitcom parody Married…With Children on DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. All 23 episodes from the fourth season of this sharp comedy are available in one three-disc set. MARRIED…WITH CHILDREN: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON will sell for $39.95 SLP.

    The offbeat Bundy family features patriarch Al (Ed O’Neill), wife Peg (Katey Sagal), daughter Kelly (Christina Applegate) and son Bud (David Faustino) living in total disharmony. While they try to survive a generally miserable middle-class existence, neighbors Steve and Marcy Rhoades attempt to keep their property values from plummeting.

    When the show premiered in 1987, the series changed the face of family sitcoms forever with its bawdy humor and campy characters. It continued to rank among the most popular shows on television for 11 seasons. Married…With Children still reigns as one of the most outrageous TV comedies ever produced. Now fans can add this new collection to their TV DVD library for the ultimate in classic comedy.

    Reminder, according to early reviews, seven episodes in this set are the edited syndication versions.

    If this is true then CHTV is really shooting themselves in the foot. I will NOT buy this set if this is true. Fat chance of CHTV rectifying the problem too... [​IMG]

    Why edit seven of them? Is that for censorship?

    No one knows for sure but it just seems like a (dumb) mistake. If they intended to use syndicated prints, then probably all the episodes would have been syndicated. Maybe the syndicated prints of those episodes were easier to find? I'm sure they're not going to too much trouble for the release.

    Yeah, that would be great, but what would really be special would be to have some sort of decriptive text on the discs, like, I don't know, "disc 1 side A". It's probably too late to request that special feature though.

    Well let's see: They didn't use the original theme song (again). They don't indicate each side of each disc. They give us seven edited episodes. And probably won't fix the problems. Now they expect to sell these DVDs to an unsuspecting public. Gee, I wonder if I should buy this set.
    Sorry, Sony. You can take this set and ......

    I understand that fans are getting frustrated with MWC's DVD releases. I still don't understand certain episodes being syndicated and others are not. Strange. Perhaps it was a mistake or they feel the quality of the syndicated versions looked better. I'd still like an answer.

    I would, however, like to ask everyone to please stop griping about the theme song issue. In this case, the right thing was done (in a difficult situation) by replacing the theme song. They were being asked to pay a high fee for that song, which most of us skip past anyway. Do you want to pay higher box set prices for a song you won't even listen to ? Doubtful. Plus that famous theme is included in both of the "best of" releases and the first 2 season sets. Plus they at least say the theme had been replaced on the packaging. How many times does that happen when a release uses edited episodes ?
