Is Al Bundy a Commie???

Well not exactly (geeze the Hertz people should really be paying me for saying that all the time)...

Actually, I don't know and don't care. But the reason I'm writing is to share with you an article from the NY Times about a Russian adaptation of the greatest sitcom ever Married with Children.

You can find the link to the article here (you might need to register with The Times). If you don't have time to read the article here is are two videos. One of the show in Russia, "Schastlivy Vmeste,” (translated:“Happy Together”) and one from our American version.

Either way I think that this is not only a great tribute to one of the finest shows (and most original for that matter) ever to grace American television but it also opens up an interesting window on modern Russian tastes and social life.

Can't get the NY Times video to play but you can see it here.
