Famously— or perhaps infamously— the final season of the show's original run dramatically changed things by seeing the Conners escape their slave-wage working class existence when they won the lottery.
Unfortunately, shaking up the status quo let out all the air in the balloon, so to speak; viewers preferred things the way they were because the family's struggle to make ends meet was part of the formula that made the show a success.
Meanwhile, Cleaver is caught on camera having an affair with the Premier of New South Wales (Toni Collette), causing her husband, the Attorney General (Damien Garvey), to do everything in his power to destroy the hapless barrister.
Meanwhile, Cleaver's nemesis David Potter has been left in a broken Opposition left with many ministerial positions; the major one being Shadow Attorney General.
Cleaver finds his assistant has been stealing money from him and fires her, but promptly attempts to re-hire her after she was injured by a falling Gargoyle.
Fuzz becomes depressed and anxious after Fiona left him for a younger boy at her new school.
Ratings tanked and brought about cancellation and a hasty attempt to wrap up the series.
This controversy resulted in an even more bizarre conclusion when writers tried to Hand Wave the entire last season, only to throw in a bunch of surprise turns of events no one had really asked for, as it was almost like someone took a sledgehammer to a lot of plots that had been central to the series throughout its run.
Cleaver Greene attempts to badly defend Lucy Marx so that she may go to prison for jury tampering after her daughter is found guilty of murder, but things go wrong when he finds that she actually is guilty.
The Healey brothers, Mark (Glenn Quinn) and David (Johnny Galecki) were added to the show as long time boyfriends to Becky and Darlene, eventually marrying them.
The show was also noted for a welcome subversion to the Ugly Guy, Hot Wife rule.
