Both my wife and I considered the (admittedly unplanned) end of Quantum Leap to be one of the best series finales ever.

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.


NONE - Originals should NOT be remade.

If any thing old shows should be brought back (better than all the reality show garbage on TV) with some of the old cast and others recurring with their kids being in the shows now too.

Black Sheep Squadron.

With specials effects these days, this would be amazing.

Now that's one I hadn't thought about. In this day it would be unique programming. Good idea and good memory!

Today's CGI silliness would ruin that show. The show was done the way it should have been done. Live action, real stunts mixed with actual battle footage. Anything else would be an insult.

Agreed - it would have to be the right kind of CGI. Done the right way, it could look incredible (a la BSG - or even Michael Bay's movie Pearl Harbor - that CGI looked great to me). I personally always thought the real combat footage spliced in with the show looked kinda silly. Don't get me wrong, I love watching documentaries with real combat footage, but the mixture of the two just didn't do it for me.

Ba Ba Blacksheep was one of my favs back in the day. I for one would love to see that one remade.
