Here's 2 things. After Jefferson (Ted) got there, the show just continued to peak. You can always argue things getting worse but that show maintained s consistent slapstick humor till the end. I like the one episode where Peggy and Marcy keep score of how many times the guys fall off the roof trying to fix it. All sorts of hilarity that is unbeatable.Parker Lewis and MWC are awesome. I never watched the others.
But getting back to writers striking and quality of script. Ive watched a lot of MWC reruns lately. The actual scripts arent even that great. It's the awesome acting from the cast (especially Ed Oneill) which makes those lines funny.
Next time you watch a comedy show, just think of the lines said. Most of the time it's not even that clever. But the actor makes it shine (Al Bundy mannerisms).
Here's a deep cut. There's actually a Spanish version of that called Casados con Hijos. Absolutely hilarious and basically takes the formula and applies the Spanish (Argentinian) twist.
