If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/9/19

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

“Here’s a story…of a lovely lady…” Anyone who grew up in the early 70s probably watched (or at least knew about) The Brady Bunch, and for those of us born in the mid to late 70s, we got to watch the reruns, which were still airing all the time. I lived out in the country and didn’t have cable, but I got to watch it. I can still sing the theme song with all the right lyrics. So when I saw that HGTV was coming out with A Very Brady Renovation, featuring all six of the Brady “kids” along with a slew of HGTV renovation stars (like twins Drew & Jonathan from Property Brothers), I couldn’t wait. And it’s finally here. In addition to the Scott brothers, Barry Williams (Greg), Maureen McCormick (Marcia), Christopher Knight (Peter), Eve Plumb (Jan), Mike Lookinland (Bobby), and Susan Olsen (Cindy) are joined by Mina Starsiak Hawk and Karen E Laine from Good Bones, siblings Leanne and Steve Ford from Restored by the Fords, Jasmine Roth from Hidden Potential, and Lara Spencer from Flea Market Flip to demo, reno, and replicate the Brady Bunch house!

There were over 9,000 hours of work filmed, all of which has been edited and condensed down to a single short season, starting with tonight’s 90-minute extended premiere. One cool thing is we’ll see/meet Florence Henderson’s (mom Carol, who passed away in 2016) son and daughter, as well as the children of the show’s creator and the granddaughter of the actual owner of the house itself, all of whom will show up for the reveal.

On tonight’s 90-minute premiere, “Honey, We’re Home!” the Brady Bunch kids have an emotional reunion at the famous Studio City, CA, home before beginning demolition.

Don’t miss it tonight on HGTV at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching So You Think You Can Dance, Kids Baking Championship, & Whose Line Is It Anyway.
