Networks seems to have a desire to reboot shows and movies that are staples in comedy culture. In recent years, networks have tried to revive projects like, “MAD TV”, “Uncle Buck”, “Rush Hour” and soon-to-premiere,“Lethal Weapon”. But do reboots hurt comedy culture, more than they help? Networks want to revive these shows, in attempt to bring back the feeling that viewers felt, when they viewed the original projects. But it’s best to leave good projects alone.
Rebooting classic shows is like breaking up with someone, getting back together years later and expecting things to be the exact same. It will never be the same. But you have good memories that you can cherish. The casts of these reboots are filled with fantastic actors and comedians, so why not create brand new projects and establish new pieces of history? For example, the cast of the “In Living Color Reboot” included hilarious comedians like Lil Rel Howery and Jermaine Fowler. These two went on to be part of TruTv’s sketch show, “Friends Of The People”, which created it’s own brand own hysterical content.
Also, television reboots paint themselves into a corner by having to live up to the name of the title they’re taking on. So, are comedy reboots a good idea or should hit tv shows and movies be left alone?
