Well, on the plus side, Patrick Swayze would be even better in the role this time around.

We don't need another reality show.

Make it about Papa and the fellas and I am in.

Absurdity aside, where do you go from that particular plot point? Do you turn it into a pottery show? Or does it just feature a helping out the dead guy du jour?

Let me guess: they're going to solve crimes together? Ghost cops!

*Googles*

Well damn, they actually made a TV pilot called "Ghost Cop" with Padget Brewster and Alexis Denisof. I may have to hunt that one down.

I want a television sequel to "Titanic". "Stupendous".

Fun fact about the movie Ghost: You know the anguished moaning sound that the shadow demons make when they're about to drag someone to Hell?  The sound effect was created by recording a baby crying and replaying it at super slow speed.

Paramount's TV division came out of Desilu, so let's just be thankful they're not doing an I Love Lucy remake.

Maybe if they made a TV series out of "Road House," I could buy it. How does the Double Deuce recuperate after such an eventful series of events.

That could totally have been on Friday nights on USA network in the 90s, just before Rhonda Sheer hosted Up All Night.

My only unanswered question is how did Demi Moore feel about the fact she, in essence, had a really sensual love scene with Whoopi Goldberg?

Yes, in the movie you see Patrick Swayze, but he was possessing Whoopi at the time.

Blue wasn't the warmest color that day, my friends!

I never knew Swayze was so method.

I had such a hard on for that show.

Sadly it's just going to be 45 minutes of some dude making clay dongs on a potter's wheel.

Up All Night?  Wasn't that where they showed softcore T&A flicks, but edited out the nudity?

Yeah. I kind of picture it as sort of a "Cheers" meets "Dukes of Hazzard." You've got your regular cast of barflies and the eeeevil rich tycoon and his bought-and-paid-for law enforcement. Dalton and his crew are somewhere right in the middle of it all, just trying to keep the peace.

I should be a network developer.

They already did this show. It was called Ghost Whisperer.
 
2013-11-12 11:51:54 PM
Too bad nobody will be interested in watching it.

Oh, this could have been great in syndication.  Except it would be titled something like 'Ghost: Unchained Love' or something like that, and have Kevin Sorbo as the Ghost Man who, after avenging his killer, finds that hell has released him for something or other (and he'll be played by Nigel Bennett).  This only means the Ghost is back, ready to take on the forces of Hell in a major American city that looks suspiciously like Toronto at night, armed with only a psychic (who will be white, German, and possibly from Lexx) and some old wizard/bum guy played by Chris Wiggins.  Oh, and since this is done on the cheap, the Ghost can't really faze through walls as much as he 'can't be noticed by the underpaid extras' and possibly 'have other actors pretend he's invisible when Sorbo's scoring an eightball' or something.

Yeah, this could have been done.  Now, it's going to be CW material.

Guntram Shatterhand: Yeah, this could have been done.


Your description is so vivid that I feel like it  was done. I could swear I flipped past that show while channel surfing on Sunday afternoons in the late 90s.

Yep.  And cheesy horror and action movies, too.
