Do we need a Max Headroom reboot?
July 29th, 2022 under Revivals-Reboots. [ Comments: none ]

Max Headroom was one of the most talked about television shows of the late ’80s. In fact, we are still talking about the computer-generated newsman. So much so, AMC Networks is considering rebooting the series that was set in the future, according to Deadline.

The site also says that they want Matt Frewer to reprise his role. That is a good thing because, for me, whenever I see Frewer in anything, I see him as Headroom.

The bad news, for me, is I tried to watch the series a few years ago. Sadly, it doesn’t hold up. Therefore, I don’t think a reboot will do well. But I could be wrong.


Does Ellie Kemper think an Office revival will happen?
July 19th, 2019 under Andy Cohen, Revivals-Reboots. [ Comments: none ]

Ever since The Office ended in 2013, fans of the show have wanted to know when it will be coming back. NBC even hinted it was thinking of reviving the show. Yet the cast says they know nothing about it.

Yesterday, when Ellie Kemper was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, a caller asked her if we will ever get a reboot? She told them, “I would love there to be a reboot!” Then she added, “But I don’t think there will be so that is a sad answer.”

Are you sad because of her sad answer? Or are you like it ended when it needed to end?


Would Julianna Margulies check into ER again?
May 28th, 2019 under Revivals-Reboots. [ Comments: none ]
Up until a few months ago, ER was the longest-running medical drama on television. Therefore, it makes sense that people, like me, would want to see the show back on the air. However, is Julianna Margulies one of them?

Extra’s Tanika Ray asked her just that. Now, if you believe the rumors about her, then you would think she would say no. Believe it or not, she said yes with one condition. If George Clooney, Noah Wyle and Erik LaSalle were up for it, then so would she. Of course, she did not mention Anthony Edwards because his character was killed off.

Should we take her yes seriously? Since Clooney could not even do his own Hulu series Catch-22, then I think we have our answer. To be honest, I would be OK if the show came back with Wyle, LaSalle and a few of the people from the latter seasons like Laure Innes, Goran Visnjic, Maura Tierney, Scott Grimes and Alex Kingston. Too bad Paul McCrane would also be out of a revival. Who can forget his character’s death?

Do you want ER to check back in on our televisions?


File this is under a random reboot in the works
November 20th, 2018 under Revivals-Reboots. [ Comments: none ]
Remember when NBC announced that they were doing a Coach reboot and you were like no asked for it? That is how I feel about the report that CBS is working on a Northern Exposure reboot with Dr. Joel Fleischman (Rob Morrow) returning to Cicely, Alaska for a funeral.

Back in the ’90s, this was a hot show, but I don’t even think that it is playing in syndication anymore. In order for a reboot or a revival to work, it needs to still be in people’s memories. Without it, you will have another Coach. Where is that reboot?


You take the good. You take the bad. Do you want to take a Facts of Life reboot?
August 3rd, 2018 under Jessica Biel, Leonardo DiCaprio, Revivals-Reboots, The Facts of Life. [ Comments: none ]

Since it seems like every sitcom from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s is being rebooted these days, why wouldn’t someone want to do the same for The Facts of Life? According to Deadline, Sony is working on one.

You will never believe who is producing it? Leonardo DiCaprio and Jessica Biel. That is as big of a story as the show itself. I mean shouldn’t he be working on Growing Pains and shouldn’t she be pitching Seventh Heaven? How did they get involved with this show?

Let’s get back to the sitcom, you cannot bring it back without Charlotte Rae, Lisa Whelchel, Nancy McKeon, Mindy Cohn and Kim Fields. Without them, it is just a show about kids going to an all-girls private school.

Why call a show a reboot when maybe all it will have in common with the original is that the school will be called Eastland? I am so over fake reboots that are more their own show than the one it is based on.
