john, your TV family is the Keatons!

What would we do, baby, without us? Cue the oil painting credits sequence —
your family is most like The Keatons. Hippie idealists with a healthy dash of
conservatism (in the form of Michael J. Fox...), Steven, Elyse, Alex, Mallory,
Jennifer, and even little Andrew are your family's TV soulmates.

Well, there were no conservatives in our family, but my brother and sister are named Andrew and Jennifer, and there's certain similarity between "Heaton" and "Keaton." Good call. Who's your TV family?

In a related vein, my theme song is "All Star" by Smash Mouth. Not necessarily what I would have chosen if I could have picked my own, but looking at the other possibilities (Back in Black, Born to Be Wild, Cowboy, Dancing Queen, Groove is in the Heart, I Feel Good, I Will Survive, Independent Woman, My Way, Walking On Sunshine, What A Girl Wants) I see that it's the best of the bunch.
