    Griswolds TV Series In The Works

    The Vacation film franchise – after five theatrically-released films and a TV movie – is set to make its serial television debut for the premium cable channel’s 2020-launching platform, HBO Max, with a spinoff titled The Griswolds. Interestingly, one of the driving forces behind this small screen venture is a former member of its eponymous family, Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki (who played young Rusty Griswold in the third film, 1989’s National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation), who’s set to executive-produce the series.

    I'll second that, feeling safe in my assessment.

    Well most of the Vacation movies sucked. Only the original and Xmas have held up.

    Vegas was so bad that National Lampoon took their name off of it!

    Vegas is ok but that is it. The remake/whatever from a few years ago was horrible. Need to rewatch Xmas vacation 2 but I remember it being total shit.

    Never saw the second Christmas one. The first one is a classic. Christmas Vacation has grown on me, though at the time, I was annoyed that they watered down the franchise to appeal to families. European and Vegas have their moments, I think that Vegas actually aged better. The remake was shit.

    VEGAS must be really cheap to license because it's on TV all of the time. I think it's pretty lame. Some good moments with Cousin Eddie. EUROPEAN is actually pretty decent for its first hour, but it falls apart during the climax. XMAS and the original are classics. The remake tried way too hard to be raunchy.
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?
