Family Ties    Looking back 25 Years Family Ties ran for 8 years and starred Michael J. Fox as Alex P. Keaton, the conservative, business-oriented son of liberal parents Elyse and Steven (Meredith Baxter-Birney and Michael Gross). Elyse was a successful architect, while Steven ran a public television station. They lived in suburban Columbus, Ohio with their children: Alex (Michael J Fox, Mallory (Justine Bateman) and Jennifer (Tina Yothers). Another child, Andrew (Brian Bonsall), was added later. The majority of the show's humor was derived from the tension between Alex's conservative, Republican mindset, Mallory's uninformed consumerism, and their parents' attitudes as liberal Democrats, who grew up as hippie flower children in the 1960s. This show gave Michael J Fox his shot at superstardom, and aren't we all glad it did! This show began two spinoffs, Day by Day, which lasted two seasons, and The Art of Being Nick, which was produced as a pilot but never picked up as a series.

One of my favorite shows. Alex P. Keaton was one of television's greatest characters. I loved the episode where he pulled his little brother out of preschool and de-programmed him. Hilarious!

My wife and I always enjoyed this show; when we were trying to figure a name for our unborn son this came on and we both said Alex!!

I remember him talking about his pre fame days not even being able to afford a burger.

I'm still working towards my break but when I do have a hard streak I remember him and carry on.
