What parents need to know
Parents need to know that The Bradshaw Bunch is a family-themed unscripted series featuring sports analyst Terry Bradshaw and his family. It contains some innuendo that will go over young viewers’ heads, and some strong language, ranging from words like "crap," "d--k," and "t-ts" to bleeped curses. The sudden death of a spouse is also discussed. Terry Bradshaw’s brand logo is visible on clothing, and logos for organizations like St. Jude’s Children’s Fund are sometimes shown. References are made to drinking alcohol.
What's the story?
THE BRADSHAW BUNCH is a reality series featuring former NFL quarterback, singer, and current sports analyst Terry Bradshaw with his family at his Texas ranch. Bradshaw currently lives in a sprawling race in Texas with his wife Tammy. Living close by is his oldest daughter Rachel, who is building a career in real-estate, and Erin, who, along with her husband, train quarter horses. Also dropping in is his daughter Lacey, along with her husband and two children, including young Zurie. There’s never a dull moment when they are together, and they never forget that the most important thing in life is family.
Is it any good?
This positive, family-themed series features Terry Bradshaw engaging in lots of crazy antics to the delight and consternation of his family. The banter between them is mostly lighthearted, but it usually revolves around the patriarch in some way. Meanwhile, Zurie frequently shares screen time with her grandfather, highlighting the obvious close relationship they have with each other.
Like most unscripted series, there are moments that feel rehearsed or pre-planned. Nonetheless, Bradshaw’s often-goofy personality makes him likable, and occasionally genuinely funny. During the show’s many heartfelt moments, he never misses a chance to tell family members how much he loves and supports them. No matter how silly or staged The Bradshaw Bunch is, you can’t help but feel that it still offers something genuine.
