5 TV Families

Happy Friday, friends! We’re loving every second of this European adventure, but being this far away also has us thinking about all the the little things we love about home. One of our favorite ways to end a long day is to snuggle up on the couch and spend a few minutes unwinding together through the form of good television, which leads us to our list of the five TV families we wish we were a part of…

1. The Tanner Family

We mean, who wouldn’t want to live in a house full of love? A Full House, if you will. We’d give just about anything to live in a world where every problem was sure to be solved with some slow saxophone music, a valuable life lesson and a hug-it-out solution in 30 minutes or less. Who wouldn’t want to live in a house where we could watch Wake Up! San Francisco every morning as we drink our coffee, then crack some jokes with Uncle Joey, spend the afternoon shopping in oversized neon t-shirts with Kimmy and DJ, head out for a good, clean night of fun at The Smash Club, and finally be serenaded to sleep by three men who are comfortable enough with their masculinity to harmonize about a teddy bear?! Dream the dream, people. Dream the dream.

2. The Braverman Family 

Oh, what we wouldn’t give to be part Braverman clan. Parenthood is already five seasons in, and Amy has yet to get all the way through an episode with two dry eyes. And who can blame her? We all need to be a part of this family. Just picture it. When life seems crazy or hard or just plain unfair, your parents host a family dinner, and for just a little while, all the world’s problems seem to melt away. A night under the stars. Strands of twinkling lights strung overtop a big wooden table to fill the backyard with laughter and love. Clinking glasses, unfinished sentences and the comfort of home. So much warmth and so much history. Yes, please, sign us up for that.

3. The Gilmore Family

If we could have a meal with any fictional family on the planet, we would choose to sit at Richard and Emily Gilmore’s dinner table. We’d drive to Hartford in our jeep and give the new maid our coat. We’d sip a glass of wine or a mixed cocktail (Martini, Lorelai?) in the sitting room, ask Emily about the latest happenings with the D.A.R, ask Richard about the club and let him tell us how business is going and anxiously await the arrival of Lorelai and Rory, The Gilmore Girls. If we had to watch one television series, and only one, for the rest of our lives, there’d be no contest. We’d spent our nights in Stars Hollow. The brilliant wit, the eclectic characters and the fast-paced banter of this show have us hooked for life. It’s been seven years since the last new episode aired, but that hasn’t stopped us from watching them a million times over. It’s our favorite way to end each night, and we even take the DVDs with us when we travel. Yep, we’ve been Gilmore-d and there’s no going back.

4. The Matthews Family

The Matthews Family from Boy Meets World is an obvious choice for a lot of reasons. For starters, we’d get to have Mr. Feeny as a neighbor, which means we’d get to end every night by walking through the kitchen door to the white picket fence that separates our two yards. We’d tell Feeny everything bad that happened in our day (while he pruned his rose bushes, of course). Then, when we’d finished, he’d give us life advice wrapped in a nice little made-for-TV bow (cue 90’s outro) that would solve all of our problems (cue producer Michael Jacobs’ name) and we sleep worry-free for the rest of our life. We could eat lunch and dinner at Chubbie’s, too! Did you forget about that place? We didn’t! Chubbie Burgers for life! Plus, it’d mean that at some point in our childhood, we’d get to open the front door and find every 90’s boy’s dream: Topanga standing in the rain. And she’d get to stay, because Aunt Prudence saves the day! Need we say more? 

5. The Dunphy Family

We secretly wish that we could claim Phil Dunphy as family. His Phil-osophies are enough reason for us to want to be a part of his Modern Family, but it’s not just Phil we’re after. We want to write poetry with Manny. We want to have a good conversation with Gloria and understand every word of it. But if we don’t, that’s okay. We can just look at her. She’s. That. Pretty. We want to do something terrible and blame it on Lily. We want to go on a double-date with Cam and Mitchell only to be interrupted by a crazy phone call from Claire. We want to help Haley and Alex realize that if they could just get along, they could seriously help each other make better life decisions. We want to hang out with Jay and barely pronounce the J. Yay! Yay! We want to hold picture frames of people holding picture frames of people holding picture frames while upbeat, quirky music runs in the background, and we want to help put the “fun” in Dunphy.

So there you have it, friends! In our dream world, we would be Amy & Jordan Demos-Tanner-Braverman-Gilmore-Matthews-Dunphy. That would fit on our passports, right?

We hope you have a fabulous weekend, and we’re looking forward to hearing what other last names from the world of television YOU would attach to the end of yours! Until then, we’ll see you on Instagram!
