As long as they also reboot Hooterville, I'm okay with it.

Beloved by whom, exactly?

/Did you know you can sing the the words to the TV theme song for "Green Acres" to Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze"? It fits seamlessly.

I think Tom Lester ("Eb") is the only original cast member alive.
This can't help but suck.

I don't know if Green Acres can survive a gritty reboot, but okay.

But who plays Betty Jo, Bobbie Jo and Billy Jo?  That's the important casting.

I've been calling a Petticoat Junction reboot for years.


Now, for the bigger question: Why no Fall Guy reboot? No unemployed stuntmen in Hollywood? Everything greenscreen now?

The upshot is that the town is riddled with meth labs instead of moonshine stills and Aunt B is being played by Kate Upton.

Also, there's a serial killer on the loose.

Barney is in charge of the SWAT team, but they still only let him carry one bullet, and Floyd the Barber is gay. Well, okay, at least some things haven't changed.

Had any of Uncle Joe's get-rich-quick schemes involved short shorts and chicken wings, the Shady Rest would have probably had more than one guest at a time.

Had NO idea there was a radio show.

I could see it as a Broadway musical. Otherwise, what's the point?

that damn water tower.  sweet jeebus, I wanted to wallow in that thing.

actually it's how Lisa pronounced "Hooterville"
 
2014-05-03 07:46:05 AM  
Small town full of moonshining hillbillies? Isn't that like half of Discovery's, TLC, and The History Channel's lineup?
/Too young to have grown up with Hooterville. Sounds fun though.
//Didn't help that my parents didn't have cable. Grew up with the crap on PBS kids. I think that may have screwed me up.

Green acres and Petticoat junction are both spin offs from the Beverly hillbillies and take place in Apalacia. the Andy Griffith show takes place in central North Carolina.

as far as I recall, the shows are not intertwined

Oddly enough, The Andy Griffith Show was a spin-off of The Danny Thomas Show. Danny was arrested & spent time in Andy's jail cell when passing through Mayberry.

Yep!,

And I must apologize profusely for misspelling "Appalachia" but the Farking Community had a laugh with it, So I am happy to help provide a chuckle. .
