1. The Golden Girls
In this First season episode, the girls enter a bowling tournament which splits them in teams of two and reveals the competitive side of Rose. They also have wonderfully matching bowling shirts that a Williamsburg hipster would die to find in a thrift store today.
2. Parks and Recreation
While Leslie Knope is campaigning, she has a “get to know Leslie bowling event” primarily to win over the vote of one citizen. It’s one of the most recent bowling episodes I can remember, but then again, it is set in Pawnee, which is kind of like being stuck in the ’80s.
4. Designing Women
The women all went bowling to get in good with a prospective client. Trying to “fit in,” Mary Jo acts like a foul mouthed and vulgar bowler and the potential client is revolted and winds up hiring a group of gay men who are good sportsmen. Note: It must have killed some of the gay men to go bowling since your shoe size is printed right on the back of the shoe.
5. Malcolm In The Middle
This was a pretty popular episode where it showed how one trip to a bowling alley turns out when you go with Dad and how it turns out when you go bowling with Mom. For me, I always preferred going bowling with Dad- because he would give me sips of his beer when no one was looking.
7. Married With Children
Al takes Peggy to Bowlarama for her birthday where he hopes to beat his arch rival’s high game score of 220. Al beats the score, but minutes later, Peggy bowls a perfect game (300), destroying Al’s chauvinist self-esteem! Ah, The Bundys are a family that looks like they give birth to their kids in a bowling alley!
