However, for our list, we have included families that have most recently been a part of our TV lives. There is one or two throwback's that made the list because those families deserve a proper shout-out.
The Walkers – Brothers & Sisters
Those Walker siblings, Kitty, Sarah, Tommy, Kevin, and Justin, knew how to bring the drama. They yelled, screamed, cried and fought with each other, as well as for each other. Their natural sibling banter, especially in the episodes where all the Walkers were together was priceless. Plus, their gatherings always included wine. They drank a lot of wine on that show which is another reason they are a fan-favorite family.
The Pearsons – This Is Us
Does there really need to be an explanation for the Pearson family? The best part of this family is that at all ages there is chaos, fighting, resentment, laugher, and a lot of tears. Whether the big three are grown adults, teenagers, or 10-year-olds, their connection is unbreakable. It is a sibling bond fans cherish. Plus, Jack is their dad, and Rebecca is their mom. They're the perfect imperfect parents. Who wouldn't want to be part of the Pearson clan?
The Bravermans – Parenthood
Being a Braverman wasn't always easy, but man, it would be great to have Adam, Sarah, Julia, and Crosby as siblings. Parents, Zeek and Camille, doled out the best advice even when it was not wanted. Their backyard was the place for family gatherings, full of laughter, tears, announcements, and a lot of shouting. Even at the worst of times, this family bond is unbreakable, and that is precious. Plus, they have the best dance parties!
The Adams-Fosters – The Fosters
The Adams-Fosters are the most unconventional family made up of biological, adopted and foster kids, but they proved blood doesn't matter. You only need love to make a family. Moms Steph and Lena ran a tight but lenient ship. They let their kids be themselves without judgment and were always welcoming, even in the toughest of times, which included birth parents, brain trauma, death, forbidden love, and of course, teenage sex.
The Barones – Everybody Loves Raymond
The Barone family dynamic is crazy, funny, intrusive, and most of all loving. They yell, don't listen, and resent each other. But they also have each other's backs. Ray and his family are not like the others on this list. They represent real-life family craziness. However, it is the humor of this family that makes viewers want to be a part of them. In the toughest of situations, humor is critical. The Barones are all about the humor, even at the most inappropriate times, and that is pretty cool.
The Walshes- Beverly Hills 90210
The midwestern Walsh family was a fish out of water in Beverly Hills. Even as they adapted to their new surroundings, Jim and Cindy made sure their twins, Brandon and Brenda, never lost their core family values. The Walshes became the family many of the Beverly Hills kids needed. Everyone was family at the Walsh house, even Dylan. The welcoming attitude and unconditional love are what makes their family dynamic so special.
