Better reboots than rehashes.

I'd welcome a Columbo reboot. Sure they'd butcher it, but at least we'd have a detective show that was about talking to and outsmarting people and not just about finding DNA on something.

As Christopher will no doubt remind us in about ten seconds: there are no original stories. :lol:

Although foxhot still has a point. There seem to be way too many reboots these days. They should dial it back a bit!

@Gaith: Too much goat cheese in salad? :lol:

I've not watched TV in years (analog tech TV), but I was getting sick of "reality" shows by then anyway.

All these TV Shows coming back.

But still no Robot Wars/Battlebots.

C'monnnnn, TV execs! Literally EVERYTHING else is coming back and most of the robots are still around.

C'monnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!

And let me be clear, Wipeout is not a reboot of MXC, it's a RIPOFF! :scream:

I think he's referring to the upcoming spin-off series. Which isn't quite the same, but... :p

It's being redone for some Spanish speaking country, but i wouldn't consider that a reboot.

It's clear no one is, but networks are picking up stupid reboots and passing on what could be good tv.

I dunno, a fair amount of the "original" programs look pretty stupid too. Remakes probably look safe to the networks. Name recognition and its a plus if the property is owned by the network or a sister company they keep the dollars "in the family".
