Coach is set to return

http://www.tvguide.com/news/nbc-orde...s=breakingnews

Between this and the X-Files is gonna be looking more like the 90's. I liked Coach but I hope they modernize it some. No laugh tracks at least.

Beat me to it, I was about to post this, after finding it after going to imdb and seeing it there.

I know people are going to complain, but I think it COULD be a good idea. I liked this show a lot, and I am *generally* a sports hater (I watch tons of various Olympics coverage, but except for a VERY few sporadic things otherwise, that's it).

Woah, I take back a lot of my enthusiasm!!!

Though generally I don't like dopey characters, Jerry Van Dyke & Faggerbakke need to return!

I recently saw Jerry Van Dyke on The Middle and he looked like he could keel over at any time. He could have been acting but he looked fairly rough. Guess we'll see how it turns out.

My sister met Jerry Van Dyke once. She said he was actually pretty funny in person. She spent Christmas with him and his family, playing volleyball on the beach in Acapulco.

We used to see Jerry and his wife around here all the time. Would have been late 90s or so. They had a theater/soda shoppe in Benton. They shopped at the small pet store by my apartment. Very sweet people, but his wife's bird did not like men!

Hopefully Van Dyke can do a couple of appearances anyway, I've always liked him.

Just read that 13 episodes will be greenlit and Craig T. Nelson will be reprising his role. Show will be about his son taking on a coaching job at an ivy league school and Nelson coming on as an assistant coach.

I never watched Coach, but was it really that popular when it was on? Popular enough to warrant a comeback?

I watched the original show, but I think I only watched it in syndication. I couldn't tell you what a single episode was about. I just remember the 2 dopie coaches, that others have mentioned above.

I would give the new show a try.

I remember it but can't recall much about it. It did run for ~9 seasons IIRC.

It got 9 seasons and numerous awards. I did like the show and watched many of them. I also think Craig T. Nelson's resurgence in Parenthood most likely got the wheels rolling for this to happen. The whole time I was forced to watch Parenthood with my wife I kept wishing I were watching Coach instead..

It probably didn't help that Coach was essentially competing at times with actual football.

Wouldn't it be better if his son was coaching the Minnesota State Screaming Eagles?

I remember Hayden Fox having daughter, but not a son.

From the WikiLords

At the end of season 7, Hayden is offered a job with a fictional NFL expansion team called the "Orlando Breakers". Hayden agrees and takes his coaching staff with him for the final two seasons. The Foxes adopted a baby boy named Timothy (played by twins Brennan and Brian Felker). Many season 9 episodes focused on the couple's newfound joy of parenthood, as they had been unable to conceive a child together before they decided to adopt.

ok, That explains it. I stopped watching when the show moved to FL because it just wasn't any good anymore.

and now a 20 year old is supposed to be the head coach at an ivy league school? I hope they're smart enough to fudge the time line to make sense.

That last season was pretty bad. I missed the cabin he had in Michigan.

If you told me that an old show was going to be redone and gave me 100 guesses I would never guess this one. And I watched every episode when it was on originally.

Why?
Why bring back Coach?

Nothing against the series but it ran nine seasons. It's not like it got cut short or anything.

Were there a lot of people clamoring for it's return?

I wonder, when a show is resurrected is there any effort made to bring back the original crew, or is a show's crew considered to be fungible?

As long as they modernize it and don't try to make Coach too "Coachy" I think its worth a shot. They need to stay away from that era's style of sit-com and bring things up to date. I'm thinking something along the lines of "Men of a Certain Age." It was funny but a little dark and certainly not "Everybody Loves Raymond." Hope that makes sense. Of course they'll probably ruin it with laugh tracks and all that stuff but wishful thinking on my part. I hope it works.

Probably because of Nelson's excellent performance in Parenthood...the only reason I could stand to watch the show (plus my wife made me).

I'd hazard a guess that you and Ms. Fabares have very different definitions of the word "terrible"

I watched the show to the end, and even I don't remember the new kid! (I do vaguely remember the change of locale.. and IIRC Van Dyke & Faggerbakke's characters followed him, which seemed very strange even in sitcom land..)

Maybe I said this before, but I liked the show, even though I don't like sports generally.
(Have never gotten into Friday Night Lights, another "good even if you don't like sports" show apparently.. I liked the lead on "Early Edition" though!)

That's all I remember too from the last season and perhaps a strong storm of some type. Hurricane perhaps? I live in Orlando though and tend to not care about shows based here.

I think the only way they'd try to bring back any crew members is if they had someone that brought something truly unique to the original show. Someone like a Director of Photography who gave the show a particular look, or a Set Decorator who dressed the set in a signature way. But other than that, I think generally a lighting guy is a lighting guy, a camera operator is a camera operator, etc.

Why would that be strange? It's extremely common for football coaches to have assistants that they prefer working with and for those assistants to follow the head coach when the HC gets a new job.
