S14:E4 - Married... With Children: Quantum Quartet No. 1 (1993)

Lo, There Shall Come the Bundys!

Nov 23, 2020
This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée share a big cartoon turkey leg while reading Married... With Children: Quantum Quartet no. 1! In the 90s, NOW Comics was printing cash publishing low-effort adaptations of popular IPs for undiscerning kids who would scoop up literally anything. Feeling pretty cocky about their success, NOW decided to jump completely off the rails by mashing together television's lowbrow losers the Bundys with an unlicensed satire of Marvel's first family, the Fantastic Four! It's a cornucopia of corny jokes and wildly inconsistent characterizations, and it probably sold more copies than War & Peace. Plus, a Darkseid's Couch investigative report: Just how underage was Christina Applegate during the show, and should someone be in prison right now?
