From 1-10 stars, how would you rate the sixth season of Married... With Children?

Also, if you'd like you could also give us a small review of the season.

After three more or less perfect seasons (seasons 3-5), all of which earned a 10-star rating from me, this took a small step downwards in quality. There’s no big explanation as to why, the episodes usually just isn’t up to par with the standard that seasons 3, 4 and 5 set the last three years of this show. Really, with those past seasons in mind, who can blame it? You can’t expect a show to keep that kind of quality forever; sooner or later there will be a dip in quality which is exactly what happened to season six.

There’s an unusual story arc in this season that goes on for 11 episodes. Peggy and Marcy both get pregnant by their husbands Al and Jefferson. The moms to be are filled with joy, of course. Al and the kids on the other hand are devastated while Jefferson is ecstatic, at first. In the 11 episodes that deal with their pregnancies we get a large amount of laughs at the heartbroken Al, Bud, Kelly and ultimately Jefferson. The pregnancy storyline had to be dropped when Katey Sagal (Peggy), miscarried in real life. They explained it away brilliantly, spoofing Dallas by blaming everything on a dream Al had, meaning Peggy was never pregnant. During this time, the infamous Bud persona Grandmaster B is introduced to us viewers for the first time and was kept on for a couple of more episodes.

This is the first season where Ted McGinley (Jefferson) is a full-fledged cast member of the show and is for the first time included in the opening credits. His friendship with Al is clearer in this season (Al: “I actually get the opportunity to play a board game with two people I can't stand and Jefferson?”) and they would remain good friends throughout the show. Jefferson even cheer on Al when taunting Marcy, though he does it behind her back to avoid being yelled at or simply getting beat up. Another important change in this season is that Kelly’s modelling school shuts down, so she gets a job as The Verminator, a job she’d return to a few seasons later. The highlight of the season for me is when we get to see the return of Steve Rhoades for the first time in two seasons. It’s the first of four guest appearances by David Garrison.

Despite not continuing on the streak of seasons 3, 4 and 5, it is still a very enjoyable season and earns an 8-star rating.

Favorite episodes: Al Bundy, Shoe Dick, Rites of Passage, The Egg and I, Cheese, Cues & Blood & The Gas Station Show

Another 7/10 season for me. The highlights are Jefferson's character being firmly cemented into the show, the intro of Grandmaster B and especially Kelly as The Verminator. I think "The Goodbye Girl" is probably my favorite of the season.

Season 6 gets 8 stars from me. Seasons 3 to 5 were as close to perfect as a show can get, and maintaining that standard is just impossible. There are still mostly classic episodes here, but there are also more fair to good ones.
