The Two Coreys

The Two Coreys
The byline of the show asks: Can two former heartthrobs and a wife share a house without driving each other crazy?

I guess that's up to us to determine in this semi-reality show premiering on Sunday, July 29 on the A&E network at 10pm/9c.

It has been twenty years since the movie The Lost Boys came out and Corey H wants to explore doing a sequel. He sets out to pitch the idea to his friend and former co-star Corey F and so the story begins.

Twenty years is a long time and things have changed -- at least in Corey Feldman's life. He is married (4 years) to Susie, has a son and a cute dog named Jake, plus he has been working all this time and made a stable life for his family.

On the flip side, Corey Haim stumbled a bit (think Lohan) and now is trying to make a comeback.

In the opening episode that I was able to preview, Corey arrives at Corey F's house and promptly shows the differences these three people (mostly Susie) has to put up with -- a smoker and a slob who tracks in mud all over the house, who complains about the vegetarian menus, and breaks the first thing he touches -- a framed picture in Corey F's office.

Yes, Susie is a saint.

We quickly see that Corey H has a lot riding on this project of his. He has arranged a radio station interview for both Coreys and while he shows up, Corey F is busy helping Susie prepare for an upcoming Stuff magazine photo shoot, and he never arrives. Corey H then makes the statement that Susie will never be part of the Two Coreys.

Yup, Susie is a saint.

We get the impression that Corey H is living in the past and sees this remake as a new start to the career he derailed long ago.

later, Corey F had to break the news that Warner Brothers Television is doing a sequel, but without the two original Coreys. Haim was emotional, breaking down at the news.

This series would seem to appeal to those who are a bit older, those who remember the films and the history of these two Coreys. It doesn’t have the intrigue of Big Brother and it doesn’t have the “authenticity” of “Deadliest Catch.” I see it going the way of all such shows that peek into the lives of a family and thinks that is interesting. At least Ozzy’s antics kept us interested for a while, but this one is a mediocre show at best.
