Egads, this could be worse than Friends or Gilmore Girls.

Marcia, Marcia, Maria!

GET IT RIGHT YOU STUPID....

OW MY THUMB!

But at least we'll always have whiney submitters to complain about it.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Cool! I can not watch it again!

nearly this.

I'm okay with Vince running this, he will do this fine. And am the right age to have a fond memory of the original show, the movies nearly wiped those memories, maybe this will make up for the movies...

/I get lots of real dumb in my real life, once in a while some fluffy frothy dumb on tv helps me laugh at the real dumb.

SilentStrider: But at least we'll always have whiney submitters to complain about it.

No doubt about that. I could not care less personally. Never have seen even a second of the new Hawaii Five-O and this will be added to that list I am sure along with others like American Idol or Survivor. Might give it a try if it ever hits Netflix streaming, but I have yet to see any good reason to get any type of "live television" feed like Satellite or Cable again.

I don't know how "sacred" The Brady Bunch was in the first place.
 
2012-07-31 10:04:32 PM
Wait. The Brady Bunch was "sacred?"

F*cking hell. The best things to come out of that show were the movies making fun of that crappy show.

I'm willing to bet that submitter was born twenty years after the show stopped shooting. That show was awful.

I didn't see the second one but the first one was actually pretty farking funny. And it had nothing to do with the humor in the TV show. It helped that Gary Cole elevates everything he's in.

Doesn't that just mean he's using his money? Surely he'll hire some good writers, a good director and then just sit back and watch the thousands of dollars roll in.

jaylectricity: Doesn't that just mean he's using his money? Surely he'll hire some good writers, a good director and then just sit back and watch the thousands of dollars roll in.


"From producer...." is the lamest farking credit they can give, only behind "From the studio that brought you....".

The producer is the money guy. Steven Spielberg will rubber stamp his name on anything that's put in front of him, that doesn't mean we're getting another Raiders of the Lost Ark every time his name is dropped. "From director...." yeah, that means something. Citing the producer or studio means dick.

I want a gritty, modern take on "Gilligan's Island."
 
2012-07-31 11:45:43 PM
Correct me if I'm remembering incorrectly, but wasn't Vince Vaughn widely considered cool at one point?
 
2012-08-01 12:01:11 AM
Kat Dennings as Alice, three absurdly hot blonde girls I've never heard of, and Connie Britton as the wife. I want a program so wholesome my pants will be blown off 15 seconds into the theme music (written by TMBG of course). If I have to watch it on mute, so be it.
 
2012-08-01 12:05:40 AM
There's probably one thing Vince Vaughan could do to get me in a movie theater and it involves him, a rope and some rafters.

A documentary.

See Vince Vaughn in his final role as he stars in Twilight in Thailand: A David Carradine Story

Thirded. The Brady Bunch sucked the first time around. I don't see how this could be that much worse.

On a network I don't watch (except for 60 Minutes), comes a show I won't watch, that will be here and cancelled so fast
you'll barely notice it. But let a few folks get worked up about the new version raping their childhood.

/Born in 1973. Missed first run but it was on seemingly at all times every day until I was 20.

Mugato: It helped that Gary Cole elevates everything he's in.


Totally THIS. Gary Cole is amazing. Anyone who can do the creepy sheriff in American Gothic AND the pitch-perfect send-up of Mike Brady is tops for me.

Good work, Mr. Cole. Stay away from this new "Brady."
 
2012-08-01 01:08:10 AM
It's not like he's in it.
 
2012-08-01 01:34:06 AM
The Brady Bunch is, and were, always was a kind of crap show. This reboot could only suck the same or be better; it couldn't be any worse than the original.

Walker: Oh wait, I thought that said Vince McMahon.


I thought it was Vince Gilligan myself. A Brady Bunch style sitcom of the White family from Breaking Bad would be golden.
 
2012-08-01 02:00:10 AM
If it was Vince Gilligan producing, I'd watch the shiat out of it.
 
2012-08-01 02:12:20 AM
I hope Johnathan Schneider is the dad and Suzanne Summers is the wife

ksdanj: Walker: Oh wait, I thought that said Vince McMahon.

At least with Vince McMahon producing the Brady Bunch remake, we'd finally get the hardcore Marcia/Greg incest we all know was going on.

And the series would end abruptly when Mr. Brady killed Mr. Brady, choked the children to death, and hung himself with Alice's apron.

From the Onion article on this one:

As part of a programming strategy designed primarily to pacify Alzheimer's sufferers who temporarily forget what year it is

Lulz.

I don't think that show could considered sacred but even if it were, that ship left port after the second porn parody.

FirstNationalBastard: when Mr. Brady killed Mr. Brady


I was thinking you meant to say 'when Mr. Brady killed Mrs. Brady', but I like this version better.

...okay, so Paul Reiser and Greg Evigan are Mr. and Mrs. Brady in this version.

It's not incest, they're not related at all.

I couldn't stand the Brady Bunch as a child.. though I briefly watched an animated version, the Brady Kids. I don't remember anything about it now.
 
2012-08-01 07:54:54 AM
The Brady Bunch was terrible and I liked it. I dig cheesy stuff that isn't self-conscious. The Brady Bunch is like KISS or 80s action movies. Complete crap but occasionally satisfying.

Stewie: Ooh, Vince Vaughn is on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. Here's my summary on every Vince Vaughn movie: 'Oh, I'm incapable of loving another person. Oh wait, no I'm not.' The End. I don't even wanna look at his face.
