Grant Goodeve

Largely forgotten today, but for a certain generation of young men, he created a strange stirring in the young loins.

Other Grant fans?

That show was so bad. Outdone in badness only by Laverne & Shirley.

R9, isn't that Mark Hamill?

by Anonymousreply 1106/24/2016

Mark Hamill was David in the pilot. A car accident prevented him from coming back I think. Kimberly Beck (final girl from Friday the 13th The Final Chapter) was also in the pilot as one of the girls and one other person I can't remember. For some reason the other two weren't brought. I'm not sure if it was Susan "America's Sweetheart" Richardson's role or not.

Was Richardson the one with the melon forehead?

Goodeve is handsome but sooooo boring. I never liked his character on Eight is Enough (though I loved Joan Prather as his longtime girlfriend.) He's on the cast list for the new Twin Peaks series.

David was, along with Family's Willie the two worst most annoying male characters in the 70s. Such angst.

I thought about Grant Goodeve on many adolescent nights. I imagined my nose was buried in a big dark brown tumbleweed (I was in Texas at the time) while my gag reflex was tested. I just started experiencing orgasm. What great memories. Now I'm hot. I'm going to Google images and will type in his name.

There was an ep where David moves into a swinging singles complex and he's at the pool in red swim trunks with that hot gorgeous chest and nipples. Grant Goodeve was glorious.

I loved Grant Goodeve when I was a young teen. I loved the show too, of course, even though I knew it was dopey. I liked the show "Family" a lot too, and desperately wanted to be Willie, but only because he worked at a game show (The Dame Game)! I thought that was so cool.

Ralph Macchio was the only hot one from that show.

I met him at a RAI party once. Rai broadcasts a ton of old American TV and threw a party for them and invited all the stars of the shows that were popular there. This was early 2000s.He was still hot as fuck, He would look at you like he wanted to fuck you, his voice was sexy, was getting aroused just talking to him, After he left to mingle, my co-worker said "forget it - he is a born again." I laughed and said "wouldn't be my first.." But alas. No go.

Handsome but did seem to always exude a Christian vibe. Meaning a boring fuck

During his tenure as an HGTV host, he came into the restaurant I worked in. His friend was all, do you know who this is? Yep. A Dlister. He was smug as fuck, still kind of hot, but way too much attitude for his supposed celebrity.
