Re: So bloody sick of weekly TV reboots

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.

Re: So bloody sick of weekly TV reboots

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

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

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

Re: So bloody sick of weekly TV reboots

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

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

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

And have NBC reboots of Bionic Women and Knight Rider beamed up to the Satellite of Love.

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".
