Subject: "Family Ties" poll

Written By: Frank on 06/20/09 at 1:31 am

Family Ties is a television sitcom that aired on NBC for seven seasons, from 1982 to 1989. Iy was one of my favorite shows from the 1980's, And Michael J. Fox became a superstar.

My favorite character was Alex. I didn't agree with all his political views, but he acted the part almost to perfection. Didn't care much for Jennifer after season 4, and did not like Lauren.

Who's your favorite character?
Did ya like the show?

Steven Keaton.  I loved his sarcastic one liners.  I wasn't too crazy about him during Season 1 though because I thought he was better with the beard.

Can't wait for Seasons 6 and 7 to hit DVD.  The episode that was filmed like a stage play (with no audience) was voted by TV Guide as one of the greatest TV episodes of all time



In an episode of the 90s sitcom 'Spin City', Mike Flaherty (J. Fox) makes mention that he met "a conservative congressman named Alex P. Keaton" and talks about what a loser he was ;D

Is that the one titled ' My name is Alex" after one of Alex's friends dies in a crash?
Yeh, Steven was better with a beard.

I like Alex P. Keaton. Michael J. Fox is so darn CUTE!  :)

And I'm proud of him foe being an advocate for treatment of people with Parkingson's Disease. And his own public battle with the disease is inspiring.

Well, I didn't pick Mallory, but that is who everyone compared me to when it was on and I was in school.....

I pick Alex P. Keaton.  Matthew reminds me of him a lot.  I just hope in 5 years he doesn't walk around in suits and ties all the time.

I loved the show and did relate to it a lot, Elise (Mom's name?) reminds me of my Mom, so it was a lot like watching people on tv play US.  :)

That was the one yes.  Alex didn't know how to deal with the death of his friend Greg.  If I remember, the stage play sequence was all part of a dream that he had, and it better helped him cope with the loss of his friend.

I did love MJF in that ep where he gets hooked on pills.. that scene in the bed room (from the time he studies to the "intervention" remains my favorite Family Ties moment!
