It's another summer rerun! This time, of our 17th episode, which never really pulled in the numbers we thought it should. We swear it doesn't suck!
“Lez Be Friends” (April 28, 1997)
For many kids watching sitcoms in the 90s, Amanda Bearse would have been one of the first actors they would have known to be openly gay. That’s what makes this episode so special. She’d put in her time on Married… With Children season after season, playing Al Bundy’s sparring partner, Marcy D’Arcy. So it’s sweet that toward the end of the series, she got to play Marcy’s cousin Mandy, who is so down to hang that Al actually likes her — and she’s openly gay.
Are there more than two gay episodes of Married… With Children? Because we did the one where Al and Peggy meet a gay couple. So if you’ve got any suggestions for additional Married… episodes, we’re all ears.
