It’s the done thing in movies these days. If a movie isn’t getting a new film adaption then it’s getting a reboot on the small screen. It’s a great way to revive old blockbusters and see your favourite characters reimagined. But why isn’t this happening for TV shows? There were so many great shows that deserve another shot at your TV watching time. What do you think? Is there a show you would love to see modernized?
Clare, I couldn't agree more! I would love to see Wonder Woman rebooted or Xena, or Buffy. Strong female roles are hard to come by but epic when they are done right. There has been rumors of a new Wonder Woman movie, and I'll be curious to see what they do with it.
I personally think that any kind of "reboot" is a lame excuse for entertainment. Why can't writers come up with something new and original? We now have the technology to make anything anyone imagines look relatively realistic, why would we revisit the past when the future is limitless?
I'm looking forward to seeing what happens with the Charmed reboot! Fingers crossed the cast and crew can nail it - definitely hoping for a Hawaii 5-0 style, rather than a Charlie's Angels style, reboot. Charlie's Angels only lasted 7 episodes :(
It's sad how quickly new shows get canceled these days, they don't even get time to grow an audience before getting canned. I'm hoping Charmed gets a fair shake, I wasn't a huge fan of the first series, but I saw the potential.
I know it would NEVER be possible, but some of the TV shows' I loved as a kid, & growing up were..........
77 Sunset Strip
Bourbon Street Beat
Cisco Kid (met Duncan Renaldo in 1960!)
Any Roy Rogers' movies
The Mouseketeers'(met some of them in 1960)
Perry Mason(some films made about 20 or so years' ago)
Rin Tin Tin
Hawaii 50-the original!
I loved Knight Rider. Kit was my all time favourite and I adjusted my driving abilities because of 'Kit' who has the ability to scan the road ahead whilst being vitally aware of all going on aorund 'him'. I learned to scan the road and conditions much more, to be more alter, to take more notice, pay much more attention, and also to use my side and rear-view mirrors much more than I ever would have done, withut watching Knight Rider. It was a great driving application teacher for me.
