Ill start off by being completely honest with you. I shudder at the thought of reboots - theyre usually an excuse for some money hungry TV execs to bring back a much-loved property with the sole purpose of rinsing it for everything its got. Just the mere mention of the word reboot sends a sharp stabbing sensation through my cerebral cortex with memories of recent classics such as Mockingbird Lane, Dallas, 90210, Knight Rider and V coming to the fore. Admittedly these problems can usually be attributed to Hollywood. Their fear of new properties quite often means they revert back to something they know (as we see with countless movies), so its no real surprise it happens with TV shows as well. It stifles creativity and variety of content, but from a financial perspective often makes sense. A real bugbear of mine (from a British perspective) is their fondness of taking our shows and remaking them for an American audience - Red Dwarf, Fawlty Towers, Coupling and Spaced have particularly fallen foul of disastrous remakes, as well as this little gem. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNca7IsC8qE&feature=related So, with such a strong position against reboots in the first place, why have I decided to write this? Well, theres an exception to every rule in life - and here I present to you 5 of them. Theres a mixture here of dramas and game-shows, all of which Im confident would work if they were brought back in 2013. To be clear, this is not a list of my favourite shows of all time, merely a list of ones that I'd bring back if I could without desecrating any TV institutions. The simple fact is, with the prevalence of utter tripe on our channels these days, surely we cant go wrong bringing back some classic entertainment institutions? The BBC have been most successful recently with a reboot of Come Dancing, and with a special episode of Jonathan Creek coming in Easter as well as the amazing success at bringing Dr. Who back, they have shown that if its done properly it can be amazing; they just need to pick carefully which ones next. On a side note, it's frightening how many shows I've considered for this list that, upon further research, actually already have reboots in the pipeline (for example The Crystal Maze) - as far as I can be certain, none of these 5 are currently in that process. Without further ado, here are the 5 TV shows we wish theyd reboot.
