What's not to love about Al Bundy (Ed O'Neill), the patriarch of Married... with Children's incredibly dysfunctional family? He's quick to berate his equally cold-hearted wife (Katey Sagal), uses his job selling women's shoes to ogle beautiful ladies who aren't his old ball-and-chain, and wants nothing more than to drink beers with his fellow unhappily married men. OK, so he's basically the genuine article for divorce lawyers of all types, but so what? Married with Children is rude, crude, and damn proud of it. —MB
