I just got done reading a Cracked list of 5 Ridiculous TV Remakes We Wish Netflix Would Tackle Next and it was fine I guess. I mean it was mostly just an excuse to tell jokes about how man How I Met Your Mother was, which is fine, that show really was awful near the end. It however had me asking, what shows would I like Netflix to bring back? So here we go...
It should be noted that I've put zero thought into this and I'm just winging it, I might not ever get to 7!
Better Off Ted.
This show was hilarious and it was only canceled a few years ago and I can't think of anything big any of the actors from it are doing, so logistically it should be pretty feasible. Also it's a sitcom that takes place in an office, it probably costs 20 bucks to make. It would also make a nice companion piece to The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
CBS is bringing back Star Trek for their stupid CBS subscription service, why not bring back Battlestar Galactica to Netflix? You could do one of two things: Retcon away the ending no one really liked where they're stranded on earth a hundred thousand years ago or make another prequel but this time make it closer to the SyFy series than Caprica was.
Hey kids remember Sliders? Yeah, I don't either but from everything I've read it was a cool concept for a show. Just keep Jerry O'Connell and his weird twin like brother away from it.
Law & Order
Tour Of Duty
Man I loved this show as a kid, which is weird because looking back on it I was way to young to be watching a show about Vietnam. Scary thought, we're as far from Desert Storm now as we were from the Vietnam War when Tour of Duty first aired. Maybe they could make a new show and set it during Desert Storm. Considering the mess going on the region now you'd have timely allegories for days!
Ok, you might need to change the name with this one cause I'm not talking about Thor and Iron Man, I'm talking about British Spies John Steed and Emma Peel. Forget that the movie reboot ever existed, set the whole thing in the 60s during the cold war, find a foxy gal to wear Emma Peel's catsuit and you're golden.
Dude, Night Court was so rad. I've been catching reruns on one of those TV channels between 20 and 100 that does nothing but play shows from the 70s and 80s and I am telling that ish was a thousand years ahead of its time. Bring back Night Court.
