My father thought this was hilarious. So did I.

Though it makes me a little uncomfortable now – too many memories – it’s excellent. It’s brutal at times. Scathing cynicsm. Raging hormones. Sexual frustrations. The boredom of marriage. Having a job you hate…

It seemed to be a warning about what the human world was really like.

Now that my life has become like the life of Al Bundy I do not feel like watching it again.

It’s a sitcom, it’s not real, but it stands for the reality of the lives of all too many people. A dead end job. Seeing the same people day in day out. Nothing exciting on the horizon. And the most adventurous most fulfilling days behind them. A reality that cannot be faced and must be denied or one would simply run out the door screaming.
