Default Show that you'd like to see rebooted or bought back

With the success of Cora Kai. what show from your youth, or movie franchise would you like to see bought back or rebooted on the small screen.

Give your show, your premise, and the original opening theme song of the show.


Mine

Buck Roger's in the 21st Century

The premise doesn't change but I would remove the cute elements of the original TV series. No cute droids, no disco scenes.

Buck Roger's launches from Earth in a deep space probe in 1995, the Earth is dying and Buck's mission and several other astronauts is to find and new home and resources to save humanity. He goes off course and his life support fails, and he is discovered in the 25th century and returned to Earth. Humanity has had a brutal history, endless wars over resources lead to a nuclear exchange that devastated humanity, what's left lives in a domed city called New Chicago.

Earth does have enemies, an off shoot of humanity that fled earth hundreds of years ago has re-emerged as a brutal empire driven by the idea of humanities survival at all costs. They see the humans on earth as weak.

Of course Buck and Earth Defense colonel Wilma Dearing lead the defense of Earth. Unknown to Buck, one of the former Emperors of the Humanity First Empire is a former friend and Astronaut from the Ranger program who was discovered and thawed out and created their philosophy. This series would feature tons of battles, and intrigue as Earth's survivors desperately defend their home.

Community movie please... jerks.

Unpopular but Game of Thrones continuation of the main timeline under different writers. Still so much world to explore.

Reaper - Got silly near the end of the second season but ended too soon.
Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles - Same as above.


I want to say WKRP but I'm sure they would butcher it, the original is still funny today.

"Night Court". It could tweak the humour a bit, or go to a network that would allow it to be use some of the off-colour stuff like "Shameless".



Also, Friday the 13th the Series was good. They didn't finish finding all of the cursed objects.

Game of Thrones - last couple seasons ruined it. Just start over. HBO needs the subscribers. Might as well.

Captain Power - Great show that should be rebooted for modern superhero audiences.
