Failed reboots/remakes?

We all know nuBSG and Abrams Trek are successful reboots. But what reboots/remakes are major disappointments, both television and movies?

I actually liked Tim Daly's version of The Fugutive, but it only lasted one season, ended on a cliffhanger, and some show called CSI it was paired with stole its thunder.

With movies, there's the current trend of remaking every single horror movie ever made.

Also... Rollerball, The Stepford Wives, Bewitched, Death Race, The Dukes of Hazzard, Scooby-Doo, The Mod Squad, Inspector Gadget, Lost in Space, The Avengers, I'm guessing Land of the Lost will end up in this category too.

You are assuming of course, that many of us don't find RDM's final clusterfuck to be an insult to our intellect.

I haven't seen Trek XI so, I don't know if that is a fuck up or not.

Dark Shadows, Night Stalker, Flash Gordon.

On a creative, artistic level, I can't think of a single reboot that has been successful; which is why reboots are a singularly bad idea.

The topic is not stuff we like/don't like. It's what's not been successful.
