Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life.He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.This show is somewhat similar to My Wife and Kids, except that the stories are more centered on teenage issues (dating, school, etc.) Bridget is the oldest child, the one who often dates Kyle, and despite the on-going "shallow teenage daughter" stereotype, she's pretty funny.Kerry is the slightly younger daughter, who's not very popular, but is a great artist.He sold his first short story when he was 16 years old to The Kansas City Star and was paid .00.
It might be sexist, but as a former teenage girl, I can certainly still laugh at it, as can Jim. We lasted about halfway through the first cassette (yes, I said cassette), and I just had to turn it off because it was such a load of sexist crap!!!

Fathers may suspect it's not easy for their daughters to become women, but those same daughters have no idea how hard it is for fathers to stand by and watch. Bruce Cameron, "Having a child mutate into a teenager is a bit like being an airline passenger who must suddenly take over for a stricken pilot and land the plane.
And in this case, the passengers are all yelling, 'I hate you! ' and slamming the door to the cockpit." Cameron has two daughters, so he is doubly aware that raising teenage girls is well, impossible.
