Icon post

Wow, that's a while ago D: Well, I hope my post changes the fact there hasn't been any posting lately.
And I will make more icons of course, but I can't find a lot of stills.
Here are 3 Family Ties icons:

(no subject)

I posted a few weeks ago that season 4 would be released August 5th. You can now preorder it from Amazon! Apparently, this season will include the movie, Family Ties Vacation, as well as episode promos and a blooper reel. I can't wait!

The Family Ties cast (Michael J. Fox, Meredith Baxter, Michael Gross, Justine Bateman, and Tina Yothers) reunited this morning on the Today Show! You can read about it here, and that article also has a link to their video interview (and make sure to also watch the video where they answer fan questions). Thanks foxywriter for sharing the link. I'm so happy to see them all together again!

Also, don't forget that season 3 comes out on DVD this Tuesday!

Alex's Attitude Towards Women

I have mixed feelings on the episode Ladies Man. I don't really know enough about the ERA to really have an opinion on the movement. At least, Alex did made it clear that he didn't agree with the hecklers that showed up at the ERA rally - and while he was dishonest about supporting the ERA, I think he truly was sincere about defending Deana's right to speak. I don't think he really dislikes women, and he did mention that he understood and respected the ERA cause - even if he didn't agree with it.

Wht are your thoughts?

A Keaton Christmas Carol

I liked the overall plot for A Keaton Christmas Carol, but I have to admit I was bothered by the futuristic portayal of Alex P Keaton. Then again, the futuristic portrayal of Marty McFly was also a bit disturbing. Neither of them seemed to be especially pleasant people, which is generally not like them. It was also quite disturbing to see the living room modified to show the futuristic Keatons living in an impoverished condition.

Anyway, I guess this is something else Alex P Keaton and Marty McFly have in common. They both nearly avoided having terrible futures. Future Alex seemed so disturbing callous, while Future Marty generally just had a very bad attitude.

Did Alex ever use the word "harmony"?

I'm sorry if this sounds like a silly question, but "harmony" happens to be my favourite word - so I'm just curious. I know Mallory used that word twice in the Thanksgiving episode, when she argued that her parents were being stubborn for their cause because Thanksgiving is supposed to be about "peace and harmony in the family". Then Elyse also used the word in a flashback scene to Alex's birth in Africa.

Considering what I've heard about the episode where Alex manages Jennifer's band - which doesn't come until Season Five - it almost seems like Alex would have to use the word "harmony" in that episode, as it's my understanding that he wants Jennifer's band to be singing old songs three-part harmony style (a la The Andrews Sisters).

Anyway, I'm just asking out of curiosity.

ETA: I feel a little embarrassed asking this question, but it's just something that I'm curious about. Just so you know, I already tried searching Google - and I'm not really finding anything useful. The episode, Band on the Run, doesn't seem to have a transcript online anywhere. I was hoping that someone here has seen that episode and can let me know.
