My Wife and Kids didn’t air for years, but some sitcom fans still remember it fondly. BUT Reddit The thread saw many commenters discussing why the show doesn’t always get the recognition it deserves, despite its many qualities.
According to you / floydisi, the series did not find a wide audience until later. While this may have hurt the show’s chances of success early on, viewers were enamored with it later on. “It was one of those shows that no one watched until it hit the syndicates, and then it became the show you always stopped at while browsing the channels late at night.”
This sentiment was supported you / onion eater, who felt that My Wife and Children could have been better promoted. “I feel like this is one of the shows that didn’t get much attention in [the] USA, but is a “classic” outside of it.”
Other fans felt that the show deserved more recognition as it promotes strong values and is not afraid to tackle serious topics. “It was [underrated] and touched upon the necessary topics for both youth and adults”, u / Self love wrote. “It showed how a family should work, and it was one of the ways I saw how a real man has children. Humor, compassion and love reigned in this family.”
