    The problem is the only people who fondly recall Marcus Welby, M.D. are folks who are collecting Social Security, whereas there are plenty of people my age who remember Doogie Howser with great affection.

    (Yes, that statement was a giant stereotype. But I'm not wrong.)

    I resent that. I'm not collecting Social Security yet.

    I'm no fan of WELBY, but I do enjoy PARTY OF FIVE, ONE DAY AT A TIME and watched a DOOGIE or two. The only way to improve ODAAT would probably be to omit all Mackenzie Phillip's repulsive screeching. So may remakes, so little inventiveness.

    May all of us reach Gepetto stage with relative comfort and no premature croaking.

    If you count ESCAPE ROOM, perhaps they already have. Just like RUN ALL NIGHT remade ROAD TO PERDITION, only in the present day.

    L.A. Law has been revived but it's moving over to ABC. Blair Underwood is the first actor announced to be coming back.

    I've seen the entire series, and quite frankly the show was at its best when Harry Hamlin and Alan Rachins were at war. For (unfortunately) a mere 3 weeks out of 160-plus episodes.

    Whenever or if they try to reboot HILL STREET BLUES, it'll be the most unintentionally hilarious cop show since Joe Friday went to color.

    Of course the NO TIME TO DIE remake/boot/hash is already in the planning stages.

    The Cheers continuation will be about Sam opening a bubble tea shop.

    I am really surprised that they’ve never revived Cheers in some way, be it the odd TV movie, limited series or whatever. Part of me wishes they would and another part is glad that they haven’t, in case they’d just mess it up

    They will bring Cheers back someday. Ted Danson decides to open the old bar back up and before you know it the whole gang is back except Woody and Fraser who shows up in one episode but Lilith will now stick around as a Fraser replacement and you will need more diversity so a ex Boston Celtic whose career was ruined and is black joins as the new Woody. You also have a young Millennial who can make Okay Boomer style Boomer jokes while the gang can also make young Millennials don't understand real life jokes. She is the new Rebecca since Kirstie Alley is old and Republican which is big no no I would imagine.

    Woody Harrelson was attacked yesterday at the Watergate Hotel bar, where everybody might know his name. He struck a rude abusive photographer in his neck after he took too many pics of Woody's kids. He's playing Howard Hunt for HBO, so that mostly explains the Watergate angle.

    Netflix has ordered a spinoff from That '70s Show titled... That ’90s Show. Hope it lasts longer than That '80s Show.

    Which is a bigger time gap than the original series. If they kept the gap the same (22 years between setting and debut) it would be That 2000's Show.

    The best thing about it is that Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith are reprising their roles.

    I’d be surprised if Danny Masterson is back…

    Bonus points to them if they bring in some of the actors reprising their roles from That '80s Show to tie all these shows together (supposedly, Eric and Corey are cousins but I don't know if that ever made it onscreen).
