One of the funniest episodes
14 October 2010 | by PWNYCNYSee all my reviews

This episode of Married With Children ranks among the funniest and most clever episodes of the series. The story is hilarious as the Bundys become the subject of a sitcom. Hence, a sitcom within a sitcom, with extremely humorous results. George Wyner is extremely funny as the sitcom director and the entire cast is in top comedy form, especially Ed O'Neill as the indefatigable Al Bundy. When it wants to, Hollywood can put together a really upbeat, humorous story. This episode offers nonstop laughs as the Al cannot get enough of a TV show that confirms everything he's always said about marriage, children, work and life itself. This is great comedy and deserves praise.
