Who wants to watch people in wheelchairs do anything? If people enjoyed watching that sort of thing the paralympics would get much better ratings.

offmymeds: violentsalvation: I didn't even know they were remaking Ironside. They could probably remaster the original, put it on primetime, and get better ratings.

The original series with Raymond Burr wasn't all that good. The NBC remake is probably just as dumb.

/doesn't watch NBC
//ever


The original show was miles better than the remake.  For one, the original Ironside actually delegated work and also made brilliant deductions which he shared with the police.  He also wasn't all PTSD messed up still, at least all the time.  Christ, the remake played it up like this guy can't spend two minutes waiting for a Hot Pocket to microwave without having at least one flashback.

Really though, the problem with the remake is that they're trying to let the premise carry the show without putting in any effort on the plots, characters, or setting.  Underwood's Ironside has all the interpersonal skills of Dr. House with none of the charm, wit, or intelligence.  The most interesting character on the show is the investment banker turned cop who steadfastly refuses to explain how that happened or why.  It's just a disaster all around and I'm looking forward to watching it fail spectacularly.

They could save it by transitioning it into a remake of M.A.N.T.I.S.

Why don't they re-cast the lead with literally anyone else?

Or come up with something original?

Rev.K: That's really too bad, because there just aren't enough crime shows on TV.


Both of these

Original is still better than 90% of what's on today

Everything about that show looked like a terrible idea.
