Why Some My Wife
And Kids Fans Feel
The Show Was
"My Wife and Kids" might not be the most popular sitcom out there, but the ABC series produced five seasons between 2001 and 2005. However, there are some fans out there who believe that the show deserves more praise, claiming that its balance of hilarity, warmth, and emotion is underrated.
A Reddit thread saw many commenters discuss why the show doesn't always get the credit it deserves, despite its many qualities. One Redditor said, "This was one of those shows that no one watched until it went into syndication, then it became the show you always stopped on when you were scrolling thru the channels late at night."
Other fans felt that the show needed to be promoted better and deserved more recognition as it promoted strong values and was unafraid to touch on serious subjects for both young people and adults. Reddit user, u/Self-Love-Light, wrote, “It showed the way a family should run and was one of the ways I got to see how a real man fathers children.”
