Pretty much nailed it. Who wants to see the same show where they just switch the gender of the main lead?

I doubt they'd get someone as good as Neil Patrick Harris or can write an equally funny ensemble again (at least in the first seasons).

They are just making a copy of the same show and probably won't even have the original cast drop in from time to time (maybe for sweeps episodes once in a while)?

This has bad idea written all over it and the original show should have ended at least 2 seasons before but i guess the ratings were still strong and the studio/network pushed for a continuation (and it got so bad that even some actors from the show all but said out openly they're fed up and want to leave).

I might have gotten behind the idea of they took the Mother whom we now now and told the same sequence of events from her perspective (maybe as a running gag have the now adult kids sit on the couch) and have original cast members just walk by in the picture or sit at McLarens in the background.

I might see that for a time if the writing is good but somehow i doubt the showrunners have it in them anymore.. they overstretched a good idea and now it's just about money.

I've never heard of her before... she looks like Gillian Anderson. Wow, she's younger than I am!

The title doesn't quite have the same ring to it. I'd have thought they'd use 'Father' instead of Dad.

Dad is bad. Even daddy is better than dad.

How about Pops or Spermclown?

There is some issue with the acronym HIMYF I heard.
