Watching films about the ocean or people surfing through the blue is the most relaxing form of media out there, and it’s about time a reboot tried catching some waves.
Our nostalgia wells have been drained dry with all the reboots, re-imaginings, reconstructions and revivals of old movies and beloved TV shows. It doesn’t matter how much viewers complain, it will only stop when someone at the top puts their foot down, like Shannen Doherty.
For once in the history of reboots, revivals and zombie reanimations of beloved classics, it sounds like the forthcoming First Wives Club TV series might turn out all right.
Halfway through the first episode of the much ballyhooed Will and Grace reboot it occurred to me that all the snarking, whining and general complaints I had been lodging silently in my head about the show were for naught. Watching the first three episodes—minus the premiere, which felt like a bad play about the…
You could say this about every remake, reboot, and nostalgia-driven television program being made today, but I’d really like to be clear: Hocus Pocus does not need to be fucked with. Please leave it alone.
As soon as I heard the news that the Riverdale team were taking on Sabrina the Teenage Witch, I joked that it would be grim and sexy as hell. And it’s true!
If you pay attention to pop culture, by now you have undoubtedly heard that Alex Kurtzman’s reboot of The Mummy is all curse, no gift. Currently, it has earned a pitiful 21 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. The nicest thing A.O. Scott can performatively muster in his New York Times review is this: “It is 110 minutes long.…
ABC has confirmed that the rumored Roseanne reboot has been greenlit for an eight-episode run to begin next year. Deadline reports that John Goodman has been cast to return, which maybe means that Dan didn’t die after all, as was revealed on the series finale. Or maybe Dan is dead and he’s just...come back, as they…
It was hinted in early January that Will & Grace might grace us against our will once more. Nostalgia is a hungry beast that demands to be fed.
It’s a given that after you read this news about Queen Latifah teasing a Living Single reboot during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen that the legendary theme song will play over and over in your head.
Out of all the shows they could possibly reboot, never did I ever think I’d be pleased about this one, but here we go: Charmed is coming back to the CW where it rightfully belongs.
Dynasty is the next popular classic to be unnecessarily resurrected for the modern era. The series is getting a reboot with the help of Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.
It’d be great if Hollywood left well enough alone, but because I’m not in charge and other people ostensibly are, a new Heathers anthology TV show is getting a pilot for TV Land.
Nobody puts Jennifer Grey in a Dirty Dancing remake (sorry, it was low-hanging fruit). Although she was offered a role in ABC’s upcoming television movie, she respectfully declined.
Tomb Raider is returning to theaters with Ex Machina’s Alicia Vikander playing Lara Croft, a role made famous by Angelina Jolie. This means there’s going to be a Tomb Raider reboot we don’t need.
I’m going to keep this brief because I don’t need a spike in my blood pressure early in the day, but TV Land order a pilot for an adaptation of First Wives Club—one of the most delightful and re-watchable of all 90s comedies—into a series with a new cast (why bother if Goldie, Bette, and Diane aren’t involved), a new…
