Millennium. Lance Henriksen is only 81, which I'm fairly sure is the same age he was in the original back in the 90s.

Confabulat: jasonvatch: WKRP in Cincinnati

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.


So now it would be The Les Nessman Show.

It's still so damn funny. This is probably where I learned how everything is absurd so don't sweat it.

"What's Happening", with everybody all grown up and on the latter end of their successful careers as lawyers, IT professionals, and in IT.
Shows can occasionally flash back to original episodes, if the writing is clever enough to craft a contemporary plot in a way that the flashbacks weave in nicely, not in a corny way.

Showing African American success stories like this - especially from meagre beginnings - would be inspiring. Cosby Show used to have that role, but no longer.

gunther_bumpass: jasonvatch: Night Court

I didn't get the Markie Post thing when I was a kid.
I get it now.


Same here. I also didn't realize how "gifted" she was because she always wore those business suits on the show.

Burns and Allen.  I know they're dead, we'll just dig em up.

If we're limiting it to shows with actors that are still alive, I'd be interested to see Scrubs' take on covid.
