The Family Stallone 5/17/2023 Paramount + Sylvester Stallone Reality Series

He sold out to do a reality series like Hulk Hogan

Maybe if it was on E! I would just skip to the parts where he appeared on the show.

It looks like it might be a Kardashians knockoff though his kids are hotter than the K family but could be just as annoying?

I love Sly but I don't want or need this.

At least Clint had the decency not to ever appear on the E! show and it just it had his last name on it.

I liked the first two episodes. It looks like Seargeoh Stallone isn't going to be part of this series...however, the fact that they never even mention him (at least in the first two episodes) is rather distracting...at least if they want viewers to "buy" that this isn't completely scripted.

Watched the first two episodes. Itís fine enough I suppose. Fairly standard fare celebrity reality show. It helps that the episodes are under half an hour so they go pretty fast. Still not sure if Iím going to keep up with it.

Frank Stallone was in it too if that draws you in but he said nothing

Maybe if it has a lot of Sly stuff and what he does behind the scenes it could be interesting but if the show focuses more on his daughters it will get boring quick.

What is disturbing about shows like this is why the people involved choose to do them. Okay, maybe Frank Stallone needs the money.

But Sylvester Stallone? Google says he is worth $400 million. Do his daughters really need to do this or is it just because they think they can be the next Kardashians?
And people like Al Pacino? He's 85 years old! Cmon man, dont take away the mystery and ruin it for your fans. You're a cinematic legend, nobody wants to watch you on a trash show like this!

Watched the first ep. Not bad, it was interesting to hear Sly say back in the day he loved being away on sets, but now he just wants to be home.

And yes, he is probably doing this to give his daughters some exposure, wanting to take care of them. He won't be here forever.

I don't know if it was the truth but his daughters said Sly likes the Bachelor and watching reality TV.

People that we respect as actors watch those crappy reality shows too and talk about it on the Andy Cohen Bravo show.

I'll allow this show as long as it doesn't take him away from "The Tulsa King"

There was a conversation in Episode 3 where Sly said he was working to move the shooting location for Season 2 of Tulsa King from Oklahoma City (no, most is actually NOT shot in Tulsa) to Los Angeles. Not sure if that's actually happening or not.

If nothing else I got to see Al Pacino run Michael Corleone lines.

I tried to watch the first ep and could t get through it.

Sure looked like Sly was wearing a wig though. Thought I saw that glue seam on the front.

If it is a wig it does not look that bad and probably better looking than the hairstyles of guys with real hair.

I noticed this also. The "glue seam" was visible in a scene then after a cut it wasn't. It's obvious he did something to his hairline after the first Creed film.
By the way, this show is terrible. I think it's purpose is to showcase the daugthers to get people to watch their podcast.

Episode 8 the finale Sly takes him to Philly to revisit the restaurant featured in Rocky Balbo and a trip to the Rocky steps at the PA Museum of Arts.

Maybe it could have served as the series finale too if it does not get renewed.

Re: The Family Stallone 5/17/2023 Paramount + Sylvester Stallone Reality Series

From what I saw the openings would be something interesting, such as Stallone hanging with Schwarzenegger (the bait), then the rest was a fatuous infomercial for his daughters (the switch).

I will say the parts that included Stallone and his A-list pals was unexpectedly eye-catching. Unfortunately the rest was exactly as I expected.
