Married With Children conti... more »nues to reign as one of the most shocking TV comedies ever produced and the seventh season continues the tradition. The Bundy family ? led by ever-scheming Al (O?Neil), lazy housewife Peg (Sagal), promiscuous yet naive daughter Kelly (Applegate), and sexually frustrated son Bud (Faustino) -- lives their lives in complete disarray. This season, there?s a new man in the house when Peggy?s relatives leave their young son with the Bundys. Al takes a job as a topless bartender to help with bills, Kelly buys a motorcycle, Bud starts his own fraternity to meet girls, and Peggy spends so much that Al can?t retire.« less
"Ok, ok, I know, Seven sucks. Gotcha. No argument there. But, I can ignore the scenes with him, read a magazine or something, until the king, the hero, the shoe man comes in to save us from the misery of Seven. Al Bundy is the funniest, greatest character I have ever seen, and even the weakest season of Married With Children still beats the heck out of the lame, tame, canned-laughter, seen-it-before tripe that networks spew out now, hoping we won't remember recycled jokes from the 70's and 80's. Kelly and Bud are getting older now, and can have more adult situations now that they're out of high school. That only adds to the humor. Besides, Seven is only in a few episodes, not every one. Less than half. Strangely enough, The first disk has Seven the most, and it has the weakest episodes. Once Seven disappears, disks 2 and 3 have some hilarious episodes. So even though this DVD has crappy theme music, even though there are no extras at all, it still earns 5 stars from me. And, best of all, for season 8, no Seven, and.. the start of "No Ma'am!""

"Even though that little snot Seven appears this season, he doesn't last long...so anyone who's hesitating to buy this 3-disc set in order to avoid the plague known as "Seven," don't fret...he's completely gone by Disc #3...and he's not in that many episodes on the first two either! "Seven" is to MARRIED WITH CHILDREN what "Cousin Oliver" was to THE BRADY BUNCH...except MWC lasted four more seasons, while TBB got cancelled!
Now, that being said, this season features guest stars Bill Maher, Bobcat Goldthwait, Brian Doyle-Murray, Charlene Tilton, Corey Feldman, Dan Castellaneta, David Garrison, Jamie Luner, John Sebastian, Linda Blair, Mark Lindsay, Melanie Chartoff, Peter Noone, Richie Havens, Robby Krieger, Spencer Davis and Vanna White. The ROCK OF AGES episode with the Sixties Rock stars ain't as bad as some may think...if you remember, Al always listened to the Oldies station in his Dodge and the storyline fits in with his love of that music.
And, for the guys, lotsa hot ladies with names like Muffy, Toni, Corky, Heidi, Mindy, Lulu, Mandy, Candy, Sandy, Tania and Dee Anna!
Even with weak storylines, this show always makes me laugh; and when I'm not laffing I find myself smiling throughout each episode! The Bundys act the way we wish we could, and get away with it to boot. So buy it, revel in it, forget the world's problems and just bask in the glow of ridiculousness that is MARRIED WITH CHILDREN.

"Looks like I found some other true MWC fans! I am looking forward to getting my Season 7 DVD set along with Seasons 8, 9, 10, and 11... OK, we've established that Seven's character was not a great idea, but who cares... There were too many laughs, even with him there. However, the show when it was Seven's birthday is Classic MWC... I love a good Bundy brawl.
The show evolved. The characters changed. Bud and Kelly got older. This is all good. If everything had stayed the same, they would not have been around for 11 Seasons! We would have gotten bored and moved on... We (the true fans) kept watching because the cast became more outrageous and gave us even more to laugh at.
Al's life continued to get more and more pathetic. Kelly's brain continued getting smaller and smaller (cudos to her for playing that role so well)! Bud tries harder and harder to get a date. And Peggy... well Peggy does nothing... And she is really got at it! MWC is a show to make you laugh. If you try to analize it, you will not be able to enjoy it..."

"You've gotta admit, that kid Seven ruined a perfect show. Luckily, he didn't last. I still give this season 5 stars, simply because the rest of the cast were very funny. Looking forward to season 8, (no Seven!!) < that lil' turd!"
It's still a good season

"I am subtracting 1 star because -as mentioned before- Seven absolutely sucks. The rest of the episodes are still great though. I love the one about the Senior Olympics and the regular cast is still as funny as ever. "
