What TV show best matches your childhood family life? Inspired by the thread asking about our childhoods.

Feel free to name other TV shows if they fit better.

Sorry, the TV metaphor does not work. My family was an odd mix. Normal on the surface but some real dysfunctional areas if you pulled the covers off.

I love the Wild West so I picked a Bonanza. The rest I didn’t watch or don’t know them well. But It has nothing to do with my childhood. Pretty idyllic in some areas, non idyllic in some areas. But isnt it life?

None of the above. More like the Roseanne Barr show or" Life Goes On", although my parents were not overweight -- I just grew up a very blue collar working class kind of family.

None. There were no TV shows of any era featuring a single alcoholic mother with 5 kids working as a waitress and desperately seeking a husband in all the wrong places to help support her tribe.

Exactly the same for me.
