Their Family Feuds Always End in Ties.
|Steve and Elyse Keaton (Michael Gross and Meredith Baxter-Birney), once 1960s radicals, now find themselves in Reagan-Era America trying to raise a traditional suburban family. Son Alex P. Keaton (Michael J. Fox) is an ambitious Young Republican and his sister Mallory (Justine Bateman) is a shallow victim of the corporate culture, obsessed with music, clothes and boys. Their only normal kid is young Jennifer (Tina Yothers), a bit of a tomboy.|
This four disc collection includes all 30 episodes from The Fifth Season of Family Ties!

Editor's NoteMichael J. Fox catapulted into superstardom--and created one of the most beloved television characters of all time--in the 1980s sitcom FAMILY TIES. Created by TV impresario Gary David Goldberg (LOU GRANT, THE BOB NEWHART SHOW), the series offered a clever take on the generation gap through the family interactions of two former '60s hippies, public-television producer Steven Keaton (Michael Gross) and his architect wife, Elyse (Meredith Baxter). Together, they struggle to retain their leftist ideals while raising three radically divergent children in suburban Columbus, Ohio: tomboy Jennifer (Tina Yothers); ditzy mallrat Mallory (Justine Bateman); and, most notably, Wall Street Journal-reading young Republican Alex P. Keaton (Fox), who served as the series' main comedic foil. A fun and warmhearted throwback to the greed-is-good decade, FAMILY TIES is resurrected in this collection of the series' fifth season in which Alex enters college.

"When else could a boy with a briefcase become a national hero?" asked the show’s creator, Gary David Goldberg, during the program’s final season on the air. And so it was that the “boy with a briefcase,” Alex P. Keaton (Michael J. Fox), would vault into the public’s consciousness as a conservative actually capable of human interactions without throwing Bunkeresque fits....read the full review|
