This week the Foxes tackle the topic of Television families.
The good ones. The bad ones. The ones that put the fun in dysfunctional.

Which families do the Foxes think of first?
What do our favorite fictional families say about us?
And what does that all say about how we as a culture define the normal family?

Tune in this week, or so help me, I’ll turn this podcast right around!

Paul had a cousin, Jamie had a sister on Mad About You (wikipedia).
