Failure to Launch enters a new year by going BACK IN TIME! Synergy!
This week we drop back to 1992 for a pilot that takes us to 1775, aptly titled ‘1775’. Someone at CBS thought the year before the violent, bloody American Revolution would be a good setting for some Married with Children alternate-universe fanfic, so that’s what we’ve got.
The eldest daughter’s kissing boys oh dear, Dad’s a dud root, Mum hates him and there’s two other kids but who gives a shit about them. It’s set in 1775 though, so they run a tavern and Dad’s cousin is George Washington (Adam West).
