One of the best sit-coms from the 80's. I loved this show when it was on. All the characters are so endearing, and the actors who play them do so with such skill and warmth, that you tend to forget that you're only watching actors perform on a half-hour sitcom! I have this whole series on a pile of old video tapes, and I can't wait for it to be released on DVD! How can Paramount hold on to such a beloved classic? What are they waiting for? I can't believe it's been over 20 years since "Family Ties" first went on the air. It's continued popularity only shows how love, laughter and family ties (pun intended) remians on the top of our list of important things, decade after decade. I would really really like to see some bonus material. They need to get it done while Michael J. Fox is still in decent health.
