Star Trek is getting a show

1. No
2. Maybe
3. No
4. Absolutely No
5. Probably No
6. Aren't they?
7. Maybe
8. Already getting one, or something along those lines

It's a pretty good list, but the problem is that the reason why a Married With Children reboot will never happen is because of all the people who "need" The West Wing to get them through Trump's presidency. If anyone has seen Married With Children, you'll know that it would drive every single politically correct person insane. I mean, more insane than they already are.

Let's just drop West Wing and replace that with Babylon 5.

A Firefly reboot? I love the show to bits but what made it work was the cast and the chemistry they had, I'd actually prefer they didn't reboot it and potentially ruin the Firefly universe for me (and likely others) with a half arsed job. A new mini series about where the crew got to in the last 10+ years with the original cast might be kinda cool (assuming Whedon was on board and Fox had nothing to do with it).

There's a semi obscure show called Jericho which I really enjoyed but which got cut short after about a season and a half which it would be cool to see a reboot of though. Also Tripods had a decent premise, I imagine that'd make for a good reboot as well.

It may not be Firefly, but we have Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion's antics in 'Con Man'.

1) Never seen
2) I guess? Never seen, but I could see a reboot occurring
3) Remake rather than reboot I guess
4) Never seen
5) Saw a bit of back in the day, can't comment
6) Got Discovery, so it's a moot point. But doesn't need a reboot.
7) Continuation, yes, reboot, no. But the comics are continuing the story anyway (and not in a way I'm fond of), so there's that to consider.
8) Isn't that being made?

Do we really need a Mystery Science Theater when pretty much anybody on Youtube can do the same damn thing?

And its quite lucrative for a certain youtuber:

While I did watched and liked Married with Children but I know for a fact it won't get a reboot due to how sensitive people are! I mean Bud hated and made fun of fat people!

Firefly, continuation, yes.
I haven't really watched the others, except for Married with children.

How about Cleopatra 2525, Dark Angel, Highlander, Lost in Space?

I especially agree with those last two, but I doubt it will ever happen. Though that might be my disdain for network executives.

As for shows I want to see rebooted (or preferably, continued) would cartoons count? There are so many cartoons that deserve another chance...

I can't imagine who we'd hire to play people like Londo and G'Kar now, and Jerry Doyle was irreplaceable as Garibaldi.

Here's my top 5 reboot wish-list:

5. Crusade
4. Jeremiah
3. Carnivale
2. La Femme Nikita
1. Babylon 5 (spin-off?)

I, being the kind of person that LOVES the idea fucking with things via reboot (SEE: Starbuck being a woman and The Doctor falling in love)...

I'd want to let Straczynski B5 give into his full vision.

Maybe do a huge gender swap for shits and giggles?

Salma Hayek as G'Kar; she was INSANE in Everly.

Chlo? Grace Moretz as Londo; she was fantastic in both the Kick Ass movies, Neighbors 2 and Let Me In.

Ron Perlman as Delenn; he's Ron fucking Perlman, he could easy sell that shit of being both hyper religious and logical.

David Tennant as Lyta Alexander; His portrayal of Killgrave and a young Casanova could easily be put into a 'rebelling' nuke.

Then again, maybe Straczynski could find some 'barely know' actors and actress and let them do their own thing.
Shit, half the cast from Defiance or Dark Matter could probably work.
XD

I remember that ALL Bundys made fun of fat people! :P

What about animation series? I would LOVE a new series of Once Upon a Time...

Um... just an MST3K correction here: Frank Conniff (as "TV's Frank") was one of the evil scientists for a number of seasons; it was Joel Hodgson (whose character created the bots) and Mike Nelson (his replacement) who played the hapless guy in space.

that would be pure awesome but id like to add more models and props as opposed to cgi so that it holds up (example: Alien still looks like it might have been made today if it wasnt for a few minor parts)

BTW married with children will never get remade because many shows are even cruder than it was at its worst and to keep up with the times its vulgarity would have to be off the charts

There's nothing quite like a genuine MSTing. Besides, we need SOMEONE monitoring the Satellite of Love.
