Re: The Twilight Zone being rebooted by Bryan Singer and CBS

I'm not against remakes, but this is one where I don't even know why they bother trying.

The original had SO many great things going for it-- Rod Serling's brilliant writing, the stark and inherently creepy black and white imagery, all those great character actors of the 60s who were compelling as hell to watch, the fact most of those stories hadn't been told before, etc-- that there's no way a remake could even come close.

Unless they got, like, Vince Gilligan to run it or something, who would be allowed to be as dark and edgy as he wanted. But I doubt that would ever happen.
