Namely Nostalgic: Bud Bundy's Comeback

In 2009, "Married With Children" star David Faustino partnered with "Parker Lewis" star Corin Nemec for the web based series "Star-ving." The show chronicles the daily unfortunate downtrodden lifestyle of Faustino's self-titled character in his hopes for making both an entertainment and financial comeback. His days on "Married With Children" unfortunately didn't leave him with the kind of opportunity as he would have hoped for after such a successful run.

"Star-ving" is partly biographical and partly fictionalized. It's over-the-top ridiculous at times yet consistently, charmingly entertaining. During the eleven episodes such guest stars included former co-star Ed O'Neill (who can be seen on the great ABC show Modern Family) along with the rest of the main cast of "Married With Children", as well as Coolio, Gilbert Gottfried, Alan Thicke and the list continues.

If you've been wondering what Faustino has been up to these years and are disappointing he's not doing more, I think you'll get a real kick out of this series. Each episode is between five and eight minutes. It's enough time to get your laughs in without the risk of overstaying its welcome. A new season is certainly welcomed.
