1. Family Ties (1982-1989)

Winner of multiple Emmys and other awards, ‘Family Ties’ is a comedy-drama sitcom created by Gary David Goldberg. Featuring the Keaton family, the drama showcases the difference between the liberalism of 1960s America and the Conservatism of 1980s America. We have liberal parents Steven (Michael Gross) and Elyse Keaton (Meredith Baxter) and their kids, the eldest Alex (Michael J. Fox), Mallory (Justine Bateman), second-youngest Jennifer (Tina Yothers), and the youngest Andrew. Alex is a staunch Republican trying to mold Andrew according to his conservative ways. Mallory is materialistic and apolitical, and Jennifer is more or less inclined toward the values imbibed by their parents. The basis for the comedy is the cultural divide and, by extension, the conflict between the parents and the children. The show’s popularity resulted in numerous references in pop culture across the decades, including Marvel’s series WandaVision, which referenced ‘Family Ties’ in its fifth episode.
