"The Brady Bunch" will live forever. It's so embedded into the psyches of people who grew up watching it. And it has been alive and well in syndication for ages...and it's still watchable. "Facts of Life"? Pfff...not even close. Too girly maybe?
"Full House" gets compared a lot to the "Brady Bunch." It even cued the music the same way. They also had the same sort of daughter set-up...except that Jodie Sweetin (is that her name?) got uglier as the show got on and Eve Plumb got prettier. Each family also had a dog (Comet and Tiger)...and added on someone younger (the twins and Cousin Oliver).
And "Step By Step" was a messed-up Brady clone. Out of all the shows listed in the poll, it's the hardest for me to watch. Painful.
I actually liked "Mr. Belvedere." <img src="redface.gif" border="0">
Full House!!! Just thinking about that atrocity makes me wanna vomit! My God, how corny can u get????<br />I mean if one of the kids like blew up the house or something that father would just hug them and say "Awww, that okay sweetheart I still love you, we all make mistakes"...Geez, if I did that my parents would grab the shotgun and u wouldnt see me no more!
Interesting tennis sidenote......I kept seeing this cameraman at Indian Wells the last two years (in press conferences) and he looked so familiar. Then this year I figured out who he was. He played the older brother from "Mr. Belvedere". I looked him up on the internet and I guess he is now a "filmmaker" who freelances for some sports shows. And please don't take this as a sign that I watched that imbecile show, lol.....I simply never forget a face <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
How could you not have Gilligan's Island on that list? It was so corny and yet so popular, and is still showing somewhere in the world and people are laughing at it. I think there are philosophy classes on the vital question, Ginger or Mary Ann!
I think it ties with The Brady Bunch for the most well-known theme song,. <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
What about that annoying show with Cousin Larry and Balky I think it is called perfect Strangers. That was by far the worst of the lot. Who the hell thinks of these shows need to be put out to pasture and shot. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
Based on the choices, Full House was the obvious selection. My personal selections were a toss-up between the Beverly Hillbillies and Three's Company. Though, when I read Tia Clara's post, I think I have a three-way tie! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
America is known for its lousy beer--and it's cheesy sit-coms! What a world legacy....
I like that reference to Perfect Strangers. Many years ago, Ronnie and I went shopping for porn, and I like gay porn because the guys are hot. You know how many porno movies are named like a real movie or a TV show? Well, I remember there was a gay porno movie called "Imperfect Strangers" with a couple of guys on the cover who bore a slight resemblance to Balki and Cousin Larry. I've never thought of the TV show in the same way since!!!
