I think Picard will be great. CBS can either get it right or very wrong. I was looking forward to seeing the remake of Magnum P.I. and sure, Tom Selleck and his mustache carried the show back then....but, the remake is painful to watch. I am astounded how The Simpsons have been on for THIRTY YEARS.....I rarely watch them anymore....Even tho it is not sci-fi I was a fan of King of the Hill and as simple as it seemed they dealt with many real world contemporary issues. I would like to see that upgraded somehow.
As far as show with real humans, I would like to see remake of M.A.S.H but set in a contemporary Middle East setting.
I’m a sucker for classic cartoons like Scooby Doo, which has had plenty of remakes running the entire spectrum from ridiculous and goofy to dark and intense. I’d love to see other Hanna Barbara shows like The Flintstones and The Jetsons get the same treatment. And bring back some of the Cartoon Network originals like Dexter’s Laboratory (which was an early Seth Macfarlane project).
Rocko's Modern Life will be back for a special next month:
I wish it was more than a single episode, though. :)
I'm already getting the series I've been wanting to see revamped.
This was such a great show, part of The Jim Henson Hour from the late 80s. Both the John Hurt season that had European folk tales and the Michael Gambon season that did Greek myths were so well done. Putting the remake in the hands of Gaiman, who is one of the most talented storytellers alive, as well as a modern master of folklore and mythology, is the best thing that could have happened to it.
That's awesome! Are you excited about the new Dark Crystal series coming to Netflix?
On a separate note, I remember really loving The Baby-Sitter's Club growing up, and now it's coming to Netflix too!
I got hooked on Netflix's remake of Lost in Space, even though it is a little soppy. And they are working on season two right now, which should be airing at the end of this year or by early 2020.
The Dark Crystal looks absolutely amazing. Both the trailer and the behind the scenes video they premiered at Comic-Con show how much care they're putting into the series. I have so much respect for the Jim Henson Company. However far CGI advances, it can never truly duplicate the authenticity of something physical. And while CGI can be impressive and help to create a more immersive environment, I've always felt that the level of craftsmanship that goes into animatronics and set design leads to a far richer experience. But that could just be my background in theater set design skewing my opinion.
