    At least CBS didn't get ahold of this. Then Doogie would be a medical prodigy and police consultant.

    The Good Doctor is about a doctor who is an autistic savant. Doogie Houser is about a doctor barely through puberty.

    Yeah, but they still come across as rather similar premises.

    I want to see a show where a cat is hired as a consultant to Animal Control. With Toon Bottoms help Animal Control is able to capture the most violent animals out their and put them in the pound where they belong.

    Evidently the Flight of the Navigator reboot is a go at Disney+, with Bryce Dallas Howard directing.

    Saved by the Bell does not belong in this thread as it IS NOT A REBOOT! It's a CONTINUATION! Get it right and get it out of here.

    Is it necessary? Many of NBC's alleged sitcoms were bad enough in prime-time. Your harshness confirms you're a fan....but of what?

    Maybe Foxhot can ask the mod to insert the word "continuation" into the thread title. Meanwhile, who shit in your Wheaties? :rolleyes:

    Wow. That came out of nowhere.

    Continuations made years later bringing in new casts are a form of reboot.

    Flight of the navigator? Huh.. Paul Reubins still available? :beer:

    And apparently a The Bodyguard is getting redone.
    Or only have a female bodyguard with a male singer..

    For you Gundam fans .. New series called Witch of Mercury is coming in 22.. No details yet.

    If we're getting a female led version maybe we'll get the female equivalent which would be ... um, Kristen Schaal?

    ^ Comedian with distinctive voice that would appeal to kids, she was who came to mind.

    That is not a reboot. S.W.A.T., McGyver, Magnum P.I, NuBSG, The New 52 (DC Comics) are reboots. A continuation such as Punky Brewster and Saved by the Bell are not the same and are not reboots.

    The Star Trek movies are not reboots. Nobody has ever called Star Trek: The Animated Series a reboot.

    Regardless, your reaction was way over the top, in both this thread and the "Next Canceled Show" thread. You doing OK?

    Why would they? Same actors and creative folks are involved.

    My favourite example of a continuation is with Degrassi. In the 80's and 90's, there was this show set in a high-school, Degrassi High. Some of the more popular students from that ended up on a new series (in the 2000's) as the parents/teachers of a whole new group of students at the same school, and even continued with some of the storylines. Internally, it was even treated as having a season count that followed on from the previous series, ie season 10 vs season 1.
