They did that already with the New WKRP in Cincinnati in the 1990s but they only had Herb, Les, and the Big Guy with the rest of the cast as recurring guest stars.

It didn't last long.

Why haven't they resurrected him? Matt Frewer is still alive and since he's supposed to be CG anyway his age wouldn't matter.

Everything else from the 80s has returned but that one actually seems like it belongs in 2021.

jasonvatch: WKRP in Cincinnati


I'd be happy just to be able to watch the reruns somewhere. I think there's something about the music they used on the show that makes it hard to find anymore (When Johnny Fever plays Pink Floyd, someone wants some money for that).

That was a great show but I imagine not nearly enough people watched it. It had a good enough cast list to cost serious money, and they had multiple overseas filming locations. It couldn't have been cheap.

I'm not sure why they never did a full CGI Max Headroom reboot.

Lancelot Link was produced by the same folks who did Get Smart.  In fact, some of the Get Smart actors stayed on to do voices.

Have you seen him lately? Not in shape.

So now it would be The Les Nessman Show.

Oh, And General Hammond was a paragon of fitness.  I'm fine with pretending that the General's chair adds thirty pounds if it means we can have Stargate back!

I have, and he already made several appearances on Stargate: Universe with his less-than-svelte frame (due to prednisone for arthritis, IIRC). His character's been a general and (essentially) desk jockey for years at this point, so he doesn't need to be in shape (besides, he's 71; he's earned it).

He's still got a way with a one-liner that makes it worth it. Honestly, I'd be happy enough if he and Teal'c just fired a few more golf balls into the 'gate.

Now replacing Cliff Simon? That would be the tough part.

"House"

Just bring it back. Have Wilson miraculously survive, and Cuddy return.

And go back to the "case of the week" stuff, and have House himself not be a complete lunatic like he was in the later seasons.

The first 2 or 3 seasons of that show were so great. The fourth seasons was pretty good. After that, it just went off-the-rails. Most shows start to lose the magic after 3 or 4 seasons at most, but they don't go STUPID like that show did. Laurie was (sort-of) carrying that show on pure charisma for the last few seasons.
