    The family couldn't wait for the old jew's body to get cold before they cashed in. Ponderous.

    If the father is still gay and still dies of AIDS, then maybe they can go for a gritty reboot.

    Has anyone watched Vaughn's other show on TBS, Sullivan and Son? It's abysmal. It makes Two Broke Girls look like quality writing.

    I know nothing of television...How many reboots that get thrown at us actually stay? Maybe 1 in 6? We are getting a reboot of the Munsters for the second time. The reboots of Battle Star Galactia and Hawaii 5-0 didn't do so bad.
    Personally, I want a Buck Rogers Reboot, an Emergency reboot, and a Battle of the Planets reboot.

    There were two "Beauty and The Beast" projects last year, I think the one that was actually the reboot of the Ron Perlman series, is the one that didn't get picked up.

    It seems like there's a couple reboots of TV shows every pilot season, but many of them don't even make it out of the scripting stage. Pitch season for TV is in high gear, we're going to hear about shows getting deals every day for the next couple months. I'm sure Brady Bunch won't be the only reboot to get a deal.

    I'm hoping for a Different Strokes remake, they can get this 4'7'' black girl from US Gymnastics team to play Arnold.

    So how did Arrow get picked up an Aquaman not? Both are lame hero concepts. If WB and DC are gonna do hero..go a little antihero..get some heat from the churches like in the days of Buffy and Angel..Go with Etrigan or Fate....Captain Marvel or Isis reboot....hell, even:[video=youtube;qmhRKU5zBS8]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmhRKU5zBS8[/video].

    I actually saw the Aquaman pilot and it was almost as bad as that video you posted.

    Green Arrow, while not amazing by any means, was mildly enjoyable.

    That's what we need. A remake of a sitcom that has been remade before....but with a black friend to hip it up!

    I didn't think the aquaman pilot was that bad. Bad, yes, but not totally unwatchable. Also, it had the benefit of taking place in the Smallville universe, so there were plenty of crossover possibilities.

    I haven't seen it since the first time I watched it. I mostly remember some horrible plane or helicopter crash in a hurricane, something like that. And a lot of really bad acting.

    I don't think it was in the Smallville universe. Aquaman was played by two different guys. One was a bigger guy and the other was its Green Arrow. But it did come from the same producers.

    I'm still curious about what killed Vince Vaughn's career.

    Anyone who thinks this is a good idea should be banned for life from working in television.

    Bring back Beat the Clock with an added twist that they kill off the losers. Live.

    I think with the success of the Dallas re-boot we are going to see a lot of these especially on the cable channels where they won't need as large an audience for the show to be successful.

    Talent and the distinct lack of it.

    How is that a "reboot"? It's just a new family sitcom that they're tacking the Brady Bunch name to.

    They should aim for a more modern writing style. Like story's of Jan's unexplored lesbian side.

    Uncle Peter gets busted for statutory :rap:, again.

    Because Bobby Brady talks to the "crab-man" over a fence about his sexual desires for the step daughters.
