Russian Married With Children: "You, get married now. Have many children. Need reverse demographic decline. Do for Motherland."

That was actually a fun and interesting read!

The fact Al Bundy has a statue in Russia is the kind of absurdity I need  in my day.

They sort of touch on that in the article.

Wow. Their Peggy and Marcie could easily be Russian twins of the originals.

Strongbeerrules: Does Gena drive a Yugo?


My guess is that Gena would have driven a Izh 2125 from the 70s or 80s since the show takes place in the early 00s when the show was being produced. That would track with Al using an early 70s Dodge Dart that was on its last legs.

That kinda made me want to go to Russia.

I'd like to see the Russian version of the episode with the aliens.

KRSESQ: I'd like to see the Russian version of the episode with the aliens.


I would like to know which episodes were not used by the Russians and how many of the political jokes had to be ditched because the article mentioned that was a big taboo.

One day the mouse that was supposed to run in the wheel lay down and didn't want to get up, and a stand-in mouse refused to work as well. Instead of large pigs that were supposed to lie peacefully, they brought very active mini pigs who wanted to run and make love. One day they brought a monkey who was supposed to put on a character's dress, but unfortunately the monkey had her "woman's day" so the dress was ruined and had to be sewn again.

This sounds like a metaphor for Fark.

The shot-for-shot Russian remake of Malcolm in the Middle is called Super Max.

I was in Russia about 12-13 years ago for some time.  I would watch this show!  No English subtitles but not needed as each episode was a shot by shot duplicate of the US show's episodes.

There were a few other shows like that.  When I was there, there were 3 types of shows - News, Remakes frame-by-frame of US sitcoms, and biathlons, lots and lots of non-rerunned biathlons.

My freshman year of college I had a Russian student as my roommate. He LOVED Married with Children, and would call my old Toyota "the Dodge". I'm sure he must have been thrilled when this show came out.

Russian Kelly looks hot.  That's about all I have to say on the matter.

Representative of the unwashed masses: Russian Kelly looks hot.  That's about all I have to say on the matter.


I dunno, man. Not to be critical of the devotchka, but she's no Christina Applegate.

\ or even Crystal Wilde as the pr0n Kelly Bundy (not that I would know)

Is the daughter braless like 90% of the time?

/I had to compare her birthday with show premiere date and it looks like she was still underage when she started going braless in early seasons
//producers have a seat over there, please

I suggest fast forwarding to the scene where she pays the pizza twins after ordering one with extra sausage. Or so a friend told me.

\ "Hey, you had an organism" could have come from the mouth of the original Kelly herself

There's a fun documentary called Exporting Raymond, about the Russian version of Everybody Loves Raymond.
