Poll question: Which TV parent do you like best?
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 08:50 PM by HypnoToad
:crazy:

Originally meant to cover a pointless "Cliff vs Roseanne" argument, I ultimately decided 'what the heck!'

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

4. I recall an ep of Sanford and Son
Where somebody makes a tv show out of their lives.

HILARIOUS.

4th season, I believe...

I'm tempted to buy the first 4 volumes, it was rather a funny show...

10. Rosanne was the "realest" by far
She was believable as a mom.

13. Who said James Evans?
I :loveya: you!!

The Evans' made GREAT parents. Thelma was okay and Michael ruled. JJ was an irritant though, but the parental values were great. But all the elements make for an interesting, if not occasionally surreal, show. Even JJ. :-) (he was self-contained in season 1...)

17. My mother was a mix of Al Bundy and Roseanne
with a higher IQ and work ethic than both combined, but those two were the closest to her actual parenting style.
