"Family Ties Vacation" was an embarrassment. Not only was it unfunny, it was unrealistic. I don't watch "Family Ties" to see the Keatons involved in international espionage antics and being followed by a pair of bumbling Soviet idiots more suited to "Gilligan's Island." The only redeeming factor was Mallory's romantic interest, but I never saw the outcome of that because, frustrated, I turned off the set. No writer who was involved with this fiasco has any reason to be proud. The producers and cast should never have accepted such a trite script. I expect more from such a quality show.
