How is it compared to MWC? I can't believe that was on for 5 years. Do they have a forum? :) I have never seen one episode. I just heard that they tried to do MWC over and I thought that's a little like doing another Sistine Chapel up, you know why bother?

It had some similarities, of course, having the same creator and some writers etc. Compared to MWC it's very inferior, no doubt. But I found it to be hilarious and I love most of the characters. I mean, Mr. Floppy is a fucking riot. One of the funniest characters in sitcom history.

Hi Shoe Dick...
You could plug in your headphones and grab a beer and some pretzels..?

*** Hi Shoe Dick... One of the best shows with Mr Floppy was the one
where the Malloys were selling used or stolen toilets on the Black Market
after the Reduced Flow toilets flopped...
Mr Floppy was dressed up like a Mafia Don and called himself the "Consiglieri"

Yeah, I remember that episode, I love it when Mr. Floppy gets to dress up a little. Always a hoot.

Hi Shoe Dick...
Strange that the headphones do not work either...
Did they ever work?
Have you clicked on the little speaker in the lower right corner and gone to the main audio control panel? It could be that something is Muted or set to
a very low volume..

How is it compared to MWC? I can't believe that was on for 5 years. Do they have a forum? :) I have never seen one episode. I just heard that they tried to do MWC over and I thought that's a little like doing another Sistine Chapel up, you know why bother?

===========================================
Hi Dr Shoe,

I actually like Unhappily as much as MWC.... mostly because of Mr Floppy
and Tiffany who dressed like a Hooters Girl or a high priced escort to go to school. Anything was better than going through withdrawal after MWC ended.

Did you notice that the first floor layout was almost a copy except for where the stairs were located and the Bundys did not have a fireplace or a built-in
Oven.

Did you know that the guy who played Jack Malloy (father of Tiffany)
had a cameo in the MWC episode where Al and Peg went on the Quiz show with
the tickets they stole from Steve and Marcy?
He was the other husband contestant. (Geoff Pierson)

I just finished watching this and he never called Unhappily Ever After a piece of shit show unless I totally missed that part. He referred to MWC as a piece of shit show when he was speaking for someone else in charge of Saturday Night Live who probably thought it was. He was discussing SNL having a problem with him hosting it and mentioned that Tracy Ullman hosted as well and that she was more cut for the job, or something like that.

I loved the interview, very refreshing that they devoted time to a lot of things in his career, they didn't stop at MWC and never stopped talking about it, they covered his whole career and we got so many funny anecdotes.

Hi Arman,

The cast of Unhappily is always dissing other stars...
One time Jack was busy selling cars and doing very well...
He had a call from a customer....Kirstie Alley and commented that she had a butt too big to haul around in a Geo Metro..
