Familly Ties - Series Review

My hunger for Comic Sitcoms bumped me on Family Ties. It has total of 7 seasons and was aired between 1982 to 1989. I am very impressed with sound track of series, filled with eternal love.
More inspiring characters for me in the series is been Meredith Baxter-Birney as Elyse Keaton who plays role of responsible mother of three (and later four) and working women. Though she rarely loses her temper, but when she does then Michael Gross as Steven Keaton is with her to console. They two are the ideal couple for many in the series.
Then there is Justine Bateman as Mallory Keaton who is funny in her way of not knowing any thing about money but being hard on shopping. 
Michael J. Fox as Alex P. Keaton is most intellectual person in the series, though he is smug about his abilities especially when none of his sister shows any interest in economics.
Tina Yothers as Jennifer Keaton is one darling from series and reminds me of Vicky from Small Wonder. She is absolutely skilled at letting Alex know about his intelligence being of no value for her (some thing which Mallory could never do despite being elder to Alex)
There have been short appearances of Marc Price as Irwin "Skippy" Handelman in some episodes. He plays a dumb head who keeps drolling over Mallory, and Mallory never gives him any chance to come near her barring one episode when both of them were caught in basement.
And there is new entry in series Brian Bonsall as Andrew Keaton, he is not spoken much in series so far and I can only say that he a cute kid.
I am on 5th season of series and enjoying watching it. My rating for this series in 7/10 and two thumbs up for those who want a comic sitcom along with family values it showers....
