ENTER: Media/TV AV Contest: Comebacks

This week's theme:

COMEBACKS: TV shows and films or film franchises that dropped out of sight for a while and have turned up either as remakes or revivals. As usual, no SF&F.

Entry thread will be up for five days.






Just for clarification, the revivals and remakes need not be recent or current...

21 Jump Street

Compared to the after school special quality of the tv series, the movie sucked.

But it was pretty damn funny, and I loved the Johnny Depp/Peter DeLuise cameo scene!

One could argue that The Muppets are per definition fantasy. But I won't, 'cause I so want to vote for that!

I get it. You want me to be the bad guy.

That ain't gonna happen.

Muppets are real to their target audience. So the Muppets stay.
