I played a game with a friend where we had to keep a straight face while watching Family Ties. I was surprised to discover I lost.
This show is really funny, even today! Does anyone know why it got cancelled in 1988 or something?

My goodness your a busy beaver today Licky!
I have all of Family Ties on VHS and am currently in the process of putting them onto DVD-Rs.
Its what launched Michael J. Fox from a 1 room (not bedroom, 1 ROOM - the bed came out of the wall) apartment to where he is today. Its a great show, just like alot of older shows.
I still chuckle at Happy Days, MASH, I Dream of Genie, Bewitched, Soap, Family Ties and I Love Lucy (note: some of these shows aren't on TV right now, I just got them on DVD or VHS heh).

But, yeah. Family Ties is great!

Used to love Family Ties. Found the ep with the suave Erkle a bit distrubing though.

The show was never CANCELLED it finished with Alex graduating from College and going to a Wall Street brokerage firm. By the end, once Michael J. Fox's Alex left the show there was little point in continuing the show it went from 1982 to 1989, 180 episodes.

Yes, but I watched Family Ties too. Is it still showing here these days? They used to have re-runs in the morn/arvo.

I loved family Ties. I still cry in the last episode where he leaves then runs back into the kichen to hug them all again, :(.
Wasn't there something about Alyses preganacy being the fastest one in the history of TV. She found out one week and had the baby about a month later...

Couldn't agree more. I love his work. Adventure/Sci-Fi doesn't get much better than the Back to the Future Trilogy.

I heard he filmed Back to the Future Part 1 during a season of Family Ties. Spent the day filming Family Ties and at night would go off to shoot Back to the Future.
