“Enemies” (April 14, 1996)

You may recall a late-series installment of Married… With Children that shifted focus away from the Bundys and onto an apartment of young sexy people who apparently despised each other. This was “Enemies,” a kinda-sorta send-up of Friends that never saw the light of day beyond this one episode. Our theory is that it was a reformatted spinoff that at one point was going to star Christina Applegate and that also features a guy who’s totally a stand-in for Matt Le Blanc.

All of this is our take on what would be the Backdoor Pilots Patreon-only bonus podcast that we’re starting this month. Should we do this one? Or should we do Weirdest Episode Ever?

According to Pop Culture References, it looks like The Bob Cummings Show was the first TV show to do a backdoor pilot.

And here’s that 1996 Levi’s commercial that Drew thinks this episode is reacting to.
