Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
Season three, episode eight, "I'll See You in Court", which was due to air on February 19 1989, was long known as the "lost episode", remaining unbroadcast in the U.S. until 2002 (though it had been seen in other countries) when an edited version aired on FX. It was held over, due to its content, about the Bundys and Rhoades being recorded on a motel sex tape.
With rare exceptions, the end credits are played over a still of Peggy and Al (looking disgusted) sitting on the couch.
US syndicated prints use a shorter version of the opening credits on most episodes, omitting a gag showing Al handing out money to his family. Most episodes in syndication are also missing additional scenes in order to fit in more commercials, but these scenes are being restored for DVD release. The episode "I'll See You In Court" has never been shown in its complete form on US television. It was initially banned by Fox, and when it eventually turned up on the FX cable network, a scene was cut for commercial space. The 2002 R1 DVD release marked the first time Americans ever saw the complete episode.
