    Sexist? So what? Men were men and women were women. Their roles didn’t mix. There was no anarchy, no confusion, and no homosexual activism. Times were better. Expectations were clear.

    People claim this is a sexist show. But the women are presented as intellectually superior. The wife clearly runs nearly every aspect of the house. The title Father Knows Best is a sarcastic title. If anything, it emasculates men.

    BTW: Look at dad’s horribly fitting initial jacket. And Bud’s monster sandwich. Hilarious.

    Jeez, Betty is poking at 8:22 . Armon’s car is cool. Jane Wyatt is smart, wise, gorgeous, and loving…perfect!

    FTW: Lead poisoning!

    My volcabulary is limited, I just had to see if “zain” was a real word. Zain, n. A horse of a dark color, neither gray nor white, and having no spots. –Smart.

    I’m a fan of Robert Young. I do enjoy watching his films and television series. Somehow i think that Robert was “overlooked” during his career. I beleive he should have been even more recognized for his talents than he actually was.

    Yes. I had to crank the volume all the way up to hear the show, then all the commercials were way too loud.

  12. fromthesidelines Says:

    This episode originally aired on December 5, 1954, under the sponsorship of Lorillard Tobacco [Kent cigarettes].

    Pretty much. Although there were certainly things that needed correction in the past, they threw the baby out with the bathwater and the family has been suffering ever since. Realizations like that are what may me transition from very liberal to very conservative in the past year.
