And the Latest “Reboot It, Reshoot It” Award Goes To:

The CW Network (yet again) for their planned reboot of Babylon 5:

J. Michael Straczynski Explains Why Babylon 5 Had to Be Rebooted (Gizmodo Article)

“You cannot step in the same river twice, for the river has changed, and you have changed.”

The above image from TVSeriesFinale.com was actually attached to an article about why Babylon 5 will never be rebooted. THAT was 2018 though, and they failed to account for the CW Network’s obsession with reboots (and DC Superheroes). Yes, announced a day and a half ago, The CW is indeed working on a reboot of Babylon 5.

Never let the tackiness of whipping a dead horse stand in the way of pandering for profit. You name it, the CW (and CBS) will reboot it.

Will it be the same without Jerry Doyle (and the other originals)? Questionable. Such is modern TV (and movies, music and even video games).

*sits back and waits for the announcement that Buffy and Angel are being rebooted… or maybe FIREFLY!*

Reboot It, Renew It, Reshoot It!!

Yakko, Wacko and Dot were more on target with that song than I thought. Yet another CBS program has been rebooted, putting them in a tie with DC Comics for most reboots ever, LOL. Who is our unlucky victim this time? A cash cow that CBS decided could be milked further:

‘CSI: Vegas’ Gets Series Order at CBS

15 years wasn’t long enough, so here we go again. O_o 😀

The new series will feature a few of the “old guard” from the original series mentoring a new group of CSIs using cutting edge technology to help solve crimes.

I’ve got to admit, I liked the old show (not loved), but another reboot in the CBS line up? When is enough enough? Even half of Netflix’s shows are reboots anymore. I’m wondering when Zorro is going to be rebooted by Disney anymore…
