TV Shows - Family Ties

Family Ties is a television sitcom that aired on NBC for seven seasons, from 1982 to 1989. The sitcom reflected the move in the United States from the cultural liberalism of the 1960s and 1970s to the conservatism of the 1980s. This was particularly expressed through the relationship between Young Republican Alex P. Keaton (Michael J. Fox) and his hippie parents, Elyse and Steven Keaton (Meredith Baxter-Birney and Michael Gross).

1 Sorry TMC1982, but the link does not work[not that JTS exists now as was anymore...] Got too much to be the M JFox show..:) -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on September 22, 2015, 12:45 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I liked this show for about the first half of the first season, when it stuck to its original premise of a pair of middle aged ex-hippies now living a middle class existence with three varied children who did not share their ideals. But then it became "The Alex P. Keaton Show", everyone else was relegated to background status, and I stopped watching. -- Submitted By: () on May 29, 2014, 2:04 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Baby Andrew aging a few years with no explanation why the rest of the family didn't age as quickly is a total btf moment. I liked the earlier seasons and thought it was a very good family show, but the show got much worse in later seasons and they would resort to completely unrealistic cartoon gags and flat humour. I always thought it had more flashback episodes than any other tv series in history (which is just plain lazy on the writers part.) -- Submitted By: (JMoose) on November 30, 2012, 4:10 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I thought Alex' best GF on this show was the character played by real life wife Tracey Pollan. When she left and was replaced by Courtney Cox, the show got very contrived. Didn't like the subsequent "love triangle" or the other "hippie-ish" girl involved in that, which was even more contrived. Can anyone seriously see Alex P. Keaton being "torn" over that one? Between the two of them Courtney was a no brainer. The hippie would have driven Alex insane! But I just didn't like Courtney's character on this show. I didn't find it believable. Seemed like a real stretch for her. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 11, 2012, 4:31 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Fit the 80s stereotype of complete cheese TV, but Michael J. Fox made the show much more tolerable as Alex P. Keaton. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on December 6, 2010, 2:46 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
6 At least they've never attempted a reunion movie. The "Family Ties Goes to England" TV movie was bad enough and best forgotten! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 6, 2010, 10:06 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

8 I could never get into this show. The ONly reason I watched it for awhile was that strangers on the street kept telling me "You look like Skippy from Family Ties." Guess I had to see what it was all about. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on February 15, 2010, 1:36 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Michael J. Fox rocked in his breakout role here. I liked Alex that tried so hard to mask his humanity via a crass exterior yet anyone who saw him interact with his family,friends and girlfriends knew his Napoleon complex was something he used to try to bluff himself more than anyone else. When I saw Tom Hanks and Geena Davis appear here, they'd both become major stars! The only problem here was that none of the other characters were more than one-dimensional (e.g. it would have been interesting to have found out that Stephen and Elyse were secretly greedy capitalists or that Mallory was more than a mall rat). -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 2, 2009, 5:53 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
