Apparently the new producers wanted to turn it into an action series rather than a Sci-Fi series. It quickly jumped the shark.

AS much as I would die to see a reboot of Sledgehammer, I don't think it can be done, the lead was born to play that role.

Titan A.E. would make a great TV series!

Humanity has interstellar space travel and has interacted with many alien species. After inventing "Project Titan" Earth has been destroyed by the Drej, an energy based species. Project Titan was hidden.

Many years later humans are few and an oddity in galactic civilization. The son of the Project Titan inventor works at the salvage yard in an asteroid belt. A space ship captain finds him and tells him a map to Project Titan is embedded in a ring his dad gave him.

Adventure ensues trying to escape the Drej and find the Titan, which turns out to be a device to create a whole new earth-like planet.

Funny I just re-watched that a few months ago. I think I saw it half a dozen times in theatres.

That would be a fantastic series.

Wild Palms. The original was only a mini-series, but I'd love to see more in that story-world, updating it for current politics and technologies.

A Remington Steele reboot (still with Pierce Brosnan) would be a lot of fun.
Also, The Grinder was brilliant and should never have been cancelled.

I was going to also say 'V', and then I saw that they did do a remake of it in 2009.

They did, with Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet from Lost) and Morena Baccarin (Inara from Firefly) and Scott Wolf (someone on Party of Five). The first season was pretty interesting. The second season was terrible.

The second season of V wasn't good, but the cliff hanger ending to that season was fracking amazing.



They used the thrall weapon on all of humanity. The good alien daughter had been killed and replaced with a clone I think and she'd murdered her boyfriend who was I think the son of EM.


That show had a solid cast, I really liked it at the time.


Sorry I went back and read a review. Lisa the daughter had been replaced with another daughter, who had sex with Erica's son and then murdered him Anna had employed Bliss on most of humanity, but some had escaped it in an underground command center and the last scene was of Anna and Amy, the evil queen and her daughter watching the Alien Fleet as it moved in to probably start harvesting.


I loved that finale.

Not mentioned yet but I liked Almost Human with Karl Urban. Really wish that one didn't get cancelled.

Cartoon-wise, Invader Zim and Eek the Cat. Maybe Ren & Stimpy, but I heard there was some unsavoury allegations against the creator.

I think I heard something about Undergrads coming back.

That Firefly reboot sounds like an abomination.

There are a lot of great shows that you can't realistically reboot because the cast was a big part of what made the show great, and it just won't feel right with different actors. There are still others that worked then, but won't work now (I strongly suspect Night Court will ultimately prove to be in this category).

Highlander is a good suggestion... I feel like the 90s is the sweet spot here because there were good shows or good concepts that were just undersupported. I think if I could pick one show that would have been so much better if it had been made in a modern TV environment, it's Babylon 5. And I didn't think most of the cast was even all that great, subject to a few exceptions (cough Peter Jurasik cough). It had all the drawbacks of low budget 1990s sci fi TV. But can you imagine that show with the budget and backing of The Expanse? Come on.

Yeah, no. No way that show works without its original cast, especially Will Smith.

Babylon 5 is a tough one. There is enough basic lore that you could make some structural changes and really send it's quality into the stratosphere. More of a concentration on politics, archaeological discovery and class struggles (all of the things that they touched on lightly because the audience wasn't ready for it). You could plan out a five to seven year series that would be must watch.

The hard part would be casting. Andreas Katsulas and Peter Jurasik gave almost irreplaceable performances. Steven Brust and Bruce Boxlietner roles would be hard to recast but not impossible. The rest of the cast was good, but could be replicated.

All in all, it would be up to J. Micheal Straczynski if he would want to do it.
