10 Shows that deserve to be revamped

In today’s world everyone is turning to recycling as a mean to take something old and re-purpose it into a fresh, new item. The practice of recycling old television shows has become one of television’s latest trends, as television executives continue to look to the past when determining their network’s future.

Remaking a past series is a complete 50/50 gamble for networks, yet they continue to put their chips on series of the past. For networks such as CBS and TNT, they have found success in remakes Hawaii Five-0 and Dallas (respectively), both which bring in strong ratings for the networks. Other networks have failed to have such success in their remakes, just last fall NBC’s remake of series Ironside debuted to terribly low numbers, being pulled from the schedule after only a few episodes.

As the media continues to promote and discuss Disney Channel’s Boy Meets World remake, Girl Meets World, I began to wonder what other shows deserve a second chance at life on television. I scoured through old TV Guides and time slot listings to find ten shows that I’d like to see resurrected from their television graves.

Don’t forget to hit up the comments section below to let me know what show you’d love to see remade/revamped and to debate my list of chosen shows.

    What about Get Smart, The Beverly Hillbillies, The Fugitive, The Munsters (Adams Family would be better though), Bonanza, The Streets of San Francisco, The A-Team, Columbo, Magnum PI? I am surprised there arent more dramatically in-depth shows in your list. Its not a bad list, but not a realistic one, at least for remakes and reboots.

    little FYI. Addams Family was revamped on TV in the late 90s. I remember cause one of the episodes had Brendan Fehr from Roswell in it and my sister had a huge crush on him and would watch anything he was in over and over

    I cannot imagine why there has never been a movie or a rework of “Hogan’s Heroes,” unless no one wants to bring up Bob Crane’s mysterious murder. The show has so many possibilities, and would not have to be a repeat of the campy, but popular series of the 60;s.

    The only reason I watched Full House was John Stamos as Uncle Jessie. Have mercy is right. I don’t even mind those stupid yogurt commercials that much. I don’t know about Hercules, but I wouldn’t mind seeing Kevin Sorbo in something better than all those horrible, not even B-movies on Syfy.

    Would love to see Hercules, Xena, Legend of the Seeker, and Merlin. I’m sure I’m missing some other great ones along those lines but with Game of Thrones and Vikings being such big hits right now these would fit right into targeting the same type of audience and should take off with no problem. I know Merlin hasn’t been gone for too long but there was so much more story that could have been played on in a similar series.

    I would love to see Hercules & Xena remade, but I am not sure any one could compare to Lucy Lawless and Kevin Sorbo, I am not even going to go see the new movie Hercules, although I like some of the Rock’s movies lets face it the Rock is no Kevin Sorbo!!!
