Tomorrow (April 5th) will be the 25th anniversary of the pilot episode of the show we all love so much - Married... With Children. I remember we talked about watching some first season episodes on this date last year, but we seem to almost have forgotten it!

So, is anyone here up for a 25th anniversary Pilot Episode viewing tomorrow, Thursday the 5th of April 2012? I know I am! Report your interest in this thread and watch the episode at one point during the day in question. Feel free to share your thoughts on the episode and the show in general when you're done watching it.

It's a fun idea, but I'm going interstate today (it's the 5th for me already) and I won't get a chance.
I'll recite it all in my head, how's that? Original pilot AND aired pilot. :)

I'll be watching today!
But hey who were those actors who first played Bud and Kelly before David and Christina.
I'll be watching the one with David and Christina of course just came to my head to ask this.
I remember some brunette Kelly. I'm glad they changed cast to what it remained.

That's too bad. I hope you'll have a good time though. See you when you get back!

Anyone else getting ready for this? I'm about an hour or so away from popping in the DVD.

Just got finished watching this classic of an episode that started it all. I can't imagine how many hours of laughter I've spent in front of the TV watching MWC and I'm glad that number is just going to get higher and higher. My life sure would be a whole less funnier if I didn't have MWC to count on whenever I need a good laugh. I don't even need to watch an episode to be entertained by the show, I know it by heart. It always has and always will be my number one favorite show of all time.

God bless Married... With Children - and see you here again in 2037 for its 50th anniversary!

WOOOOOAAAAAHHHHH BUNDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, not Italien per sé, I don't mean he sounds like the local pizzeria owner, Luigi. Not that kind of Italian accent. As I mentioned in another thread, a New Yorker with Italien roots.
