Married with Children... All Things Episodic
Episode: 0308 - IíLL SEE YOU IN COURT
Reviewed By: John P. Stevenson
Well, this is it, the one that American fans have heard about since 1989... the famous
"Lost Episode" has finally aired in the U.S., giving most of us our first new MWC since the
seriesí cancellation. Was it worth the wait?? Well, yes and no.
Donít misunderstand me. Itís a very good episode, from one of MWC's best seasons. Itís
well written, and very, very funny! And itís NEW!!! It doesnít get much better than this for
MWC fans (other than an MWC reunion!). Is it a great episode, on a par with such classics as:
JUST MARRIED... WITH CHILDREN; A PERIOD PIECE; or ITíS A BUNDYFUL LIFE? No, itís not at that
level, and I donít think that anyone has ever said that it was. It is what it is, a very good
The best thing about this episode is that it reminds us just how far the envelope was
being pushed by the show. Now, when the hottest show in the country features an aging, Walking-
Commercial-for-Donít-Do-Drugs rock star cursing at his (BLEEP)ing dogs for (BLEEP)ing all over
the (BLEEP)ing floors all the (BLEEP)ing time, we can forget just how strait-laced network TV
was not so very long ago. The thought that this episode was actually banned from airing is,
well, just (BLEEP)ing incredible!
Rating: **** out of 5.
