Family Ties

Family Ties
Who doesn’t remember de sitcom Family Ties broadcasted by NBC for seven seasons, starting in 1982 and concluding in 1989. The series dealt with a typical U.S. phenomenon—the move from the cultural liberalism of the 1960s and 1970s to the conservatism of the 1980s. This was particularly expressed through the relationship between young Republican Alex P. Keaton, portrayed by Michael J. Fox, and his ex-hippie parents, Steven and Elyse Keaton, portrayed by Michael Gross and Meredith Baxter. Much of the humor of the series focuses on the cultural divide during the 1980s when younger generations rejected the typical hippie culture form the roaring sixties.
