Remakes that failed: Bionic Woman, Fantasy Island, Knight Rider, The Munsters, The Odd Couple (with Ron Glass as Felix and Demond Wilson as Oscar) They went as far as to use recycled scripts from the original Odd couple series.
The only remake to my knowledge that succeeded: Battle Star Galactica

This hard because there have been movies(but no TV series) already made of some of my favorite show.
The Brady Bunch
Lost in Space
My Favorite Martian
The Addams Family
The Beverly Hillbillies
Get Smart
Dragnet
Just to name a few

No to remakes/movies of:
Perry Mason
Green Acres
Chico and the Man
Night Court
The Six Million Dollar Man (or would it be Billion today?)

If I can think of any more I will add them in another post.

Mr. Ed. A new version would pale by comparison.

They did a remake of Dragnet a few years ago with Ed O'Neill and Ethan Embry. http://en.wikipedia....s:_L.A._Dragnet Never saw the original, but I thought the first season was pretty good, until they went and changed it.

Dragnet


Actually Dragnet has been remade on several occasions for TV

The first occurred in 1967 and ran for 3 seasons and then it was done again in 1989 and ran for 1 season (thank goodness) and finally in 2003 and ran for 2 seasons.

This show was awsome I wish NBC had given it time to blossom.


With that said I would not like to see Blossom remade, if they did I would not watch.

Mork and Mindy
Perfect Strangers
Family Matters (really, who could be erkle?)
Fresh Prince of Belaire
Full House

A plethora of others, but those are a few I think shouldn't be remade. Either because they shouldn't be remade, or because a remake couldn't to the original justice. :D

In your opinion that is. Only good shows to come out of that era was The Twilight Zone, Dragnet and Adam 12. The rest is all garbage. Lucy, The Munsters, Bewitched and the rest of that crap. Piss poor acting, lame predictable lines, you can write a novel for a 'goofs guide', nonexistant special effects, no violence, no sex, no nudity, no gore, no profanity, yeah all that sounds like a hoot!


Agreed
