Family Ties is my favorite sitcom ever. In the 1980’s, I would immediately stop playing Barbies or admiring my Lisa Frank stickers as soon as I heard Johnny Mathis and Deniece Williams start singing the Family Ties theme below.
Even now, I would leave a pile of laundry to rot if I caught it on TV. Really, any excuse to do that to my laundry would do. But, sadly, I am mad at "Family Ties" and I have been for a while. Here are 5 reasons why:
#1: It was cancelled. This one should be obvious. It aired from 1982 to 1989. Seven years wasn’t long enough. I am one that gets hooked on TV shows and never want them to end. When Felicity ended in 2002? Dagger in my heart.
|Apparently, this dramatic change wasn't good for Andy/Brian either.|
|I may change my name to Mallory, which means this blog|
will change to Mallory's Break Room. Still sounds okay,
#4: It never told me it was going to be featured on The Today Show in 2008. As a devoted fan, I thought the least they all could do was text me to tell me the special was airing. I would have had a huge party, made everyone wear ties, gotten nametags with "Alex P. Keaton" written on every single one of them, alerted everyone I knew, rented a Blimp with the message "TURN YOUR TV TO THE TODAY SHOW NOW!" blazed across it and everything. I missed the reunion and I'm still sick over it.
|I'm telling Steven!|
Whew! It felt good to get that all out. I'm not mad anymore.
