The show is about a fat guy and his wife and their two friends.
Sounds lame. But it's not.
What makes this show special?
It's main character was the inspiration for Fred Flintstone.
Yes and no, yes it inspired the character Fred Flintstone but that's not why the show is famous.
Cause its funny?
Yes and no again, sure its funny (my favorite is when he eats cat food thinking its a fancy dinner and then he tries to sell it as a new type of dinner meal) but that's not why it's a well known show.
No what makes this show so well known and interesting is the one line often said by the husband to the wife.
"One of these days... POW! Right in the kisser! One of these days Alice, straight to the moon!"
Now for you young folks who don't understand olden day slang, I'll translate.
"One day, POW! I'm gonna punch you right in the face woman, one of these days Alice I'm gonna punch you so god damn hard you'll fly to the moon!"
Now that seems like a nice healthy relationship!
Who doesn't wanna watch a show about a guy who threatens his wife with physical violence?!
