27 – Top 5 TV Families

February 14, 2018

Lovable. Relatable. Dysfunctional. They are just like us!

TV families come in all shapes and sizes but we love them all the same for making us laugh and cry on the small screen at home. They make us forget about our own lives (and to be honest – take a break from our own families) and bring us to a world of pure entertainment. While there are many great families on television, there are some that blow the rest out of the water! Join Tuong La and his PodCavern Family Taylor Fleming, Axandre Lemours, and Reba Ollerhead as we rank the very best TV families.

Ground Rules

  • As long as the family has it’s own TV show (adapted) it’s fair game. Whether it came from a book or movie first does not matter
  • Nominations can’t be “so close it’s like family” ie FireFly, Dunder Mifflin
  • If adopted into the family it counts (ie Brian Griffin – Family Guy) or is somehow a very core member (ie Geoffrey – Fresh Prince)
