Okay, it isn’t as bad as all that, maybe. But it seems there are shows I fondly recall from my younger years that get ‘reboots’… and some of those reboots suck!
GI JOE REAL AMERICAN HERO: the first two seasons, which I believe were put out by Sunbow… loved the animation, the story lines…and the continuity. Season three… the animation changed, and very few of the old favorites were still there…and they weren’t exactly the same, either. Renegades came out in 2010. It seemed they tossed cannon completely, and I wasn’t too crazy about the animation, either. Between the two, we had SIGMA SIX… which, in my opinion, stank completely. Scarlett looks all of about 13 the way the animation was done!
DRAGNET was a serious show. The movie that came out in 1987…. cheap comedy.
DUKES OF HAZZARD: Luke, Bo, Daisy, Uncle Jesse, Cooter, the General Lee, Roscoe, Boss Hogg…. lords, did I love watching the Duke Boys! The movie that came out in 2005 was NOT the same good fun.
Even STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE got an overhaul. Instead of children, Strawberry and her friends come across as teens… yet the target audience is still under 8.
Yuck. Every time I hear about a reboot, I get nervous. The only one that seems to have kept the promise was DR WHO!
