Firefly. Remade with more episodes and less network "suit" interference.

2002 counts as "yesteryear" doesn't it?;)


It would count for me! We would love to see more Firefly!

'Emergency' has been remade about a thousand times. Same with 'Adam-12'. Look at all the cop shows and hospital shows (ER for example) and other shows like......



When I point out Emergency and Adam-12, as a remake I mean same charcter names places and squad numbers ect. Not the remake of the same type of show like third watch or hill street blues.

I am all for original ideas and content but the powers that be seem to think that the future of tv is in its past.

I'd actually like to see a show where they took very minor characters from a lot of different shows and put them in an ensemble.

Considering all the remakes both recent and to come, what show from yesteryear would you like to see remade?


I would not mind seeing a remake of Emergency or Adam-12. A couple of favs from my childhood.


Why remake these 2 AWESOME shows Emergency and or Adam-12 when you can watch them in all there glory from NetFlix on DVD or like I have been doing on my ROKU which is now my leading entertainment device. And once HULU jumps on board I will be able to watch S.W.A.T. and the Bob Newhart show on my ROKU :)

Most of my choices would come from '70s TV shows, making them untenable, but give me a little while, I'll come up with some more current choices.

Space 1999, but we would have to rename it space 2099. Maybe Ultraman and the Muppet Show.

As campy as that was, it may have been one of the more realistic space shows ever made. At least they tried to deal with low gravity and no atmosphere.

Actionish:

- A-Team (I really hope the movie does proceed)
- Quantum Leap
- Automan (look it up on Wiki, I think today the show could be done SO MUCH better that it would actually work)
- Airwolf
- Knight Rider. I would REALLY like to see them take what they learned from the season, and started to re-tool in the second half and give it another crack

Comedy:
- My Two Dads
- Small Wonder
- Night Court
- Greatest American Hero
- Dukes of Hazard


In a nutshell, I want to see 95% of these reality shows gone.
Save them for Friday and Saturday nights.

It may be me but a remake is when they take the name of the show charcters of said show and redo the show ala BSG or Bionic Woman. They may add new charcters or make a charcter from the original a woman instead of a man, but it is a remake of the orignal show.IMO Third Watch is no more a remake of Emergency than Hill Street Blues is a remake of Adam-12.

Big Valley!! And wouldn't you just love to see a modern day Miss Kitty? I loved James Arness!! Loved him in How the West was Won as well. Which reminds me, I would like to see a remake of Scarecrow and Mrs. King.

Have Gun Will Travel... but I can't think of anyone but Richard Boone for that part.

Banacek... but who could improve on George Peppard?

Taxi... I'd die for that if they could cast it. Pretty much everyone is still around except Andy Kaufman.

I'd go for that. It was a great show!

the Muppet Show.


Actually, I'd just be happy if they'd release the last two seasons on DVD! Better yet, put all five on BRD and include the songs cut due to the obstinate "rights owners' not releasing their lyrics.

Oh, oh and Barney Miller 2010


Sorry, Barney Miller would just not be the same without the characters like Fish and those wonderfully wide and short neckties!
