Family Ties - The Blog-o-Rama Thanksgiving Show A Day.

No Nukes Is Good Nukes.

I know, this is a strange title for a Thanksgiving episode.  But, that's what this is.

Family Ties is a sitcom starring Michael J. Fox that aired on NBC from 1982-89. The show also starred Michael Gross, Meredith Baxter Birney, Justine Bateman, and Tina Yothers.  The basic joke that ran throughout the series was that Fox was a conservative Republican while his parents were left wing liberals.


The title of this episode makes sense when you read the plot:  Steven and Elyse are arrested on Thanksgiving when protesting nuclear arms. Alex is pro-nuclear weapons, though Jennifer's questions shake his reasoning. Mallory just wishes someone else could do the protesting and leave their family peace. Steven and Elyse are given a chance to leave prison if they sign a document promising never to protest and swearing they support the arms race. They refuse it.

Watch a Family Ties Thanksgiving and enjoy!
