11 Reboots Of Classic Movies and TV Shows That We All Wish Didn't Happen

- Page 1

There were a lot of shows from our childhood that were so amazing. So many of the movies and TV shows that meant a lot to us growing up are now thought of as outdated and poorly made. At least that's what Hollywood thinks, so they keep trying to remake them.

As it turns out, some things should just be left alone. There have been so many failed reboots of classics that honestly should not have been allowed to happen.

Charlie's Angels


There was a moderate success with the movie, at least enough to make a sequel. But the new TV show only lasted four episodes before it was canceled.

Knight Rider


You don't Hassle the Hoff, and you don't try to redo his shtick. He is talking about trying to make a new version himself, but without him this reboot was canceled extremely quick.  

Red Dawn


This film had a rough go, it was delayed for YEARS before finally releasing in 2012. It tried to capitalize on two of their stars sudden spike in fame, but even Josh Hutcherson and Chris Hemsworth couldn't save this film.



Try all they might, but it just was nothing like the original and no one seemed to like it.

Melrose Place

The CW

Even though the 90210 reboot did fairly well, the remake of Melrose Place did not have the same success.

Bionic Woman


The original show was so iconic, that it's pretty reasonable that nothing was going to compare. They tried, but was cancelled pretty quickly.

They keep trying, but they all keep failing.

'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory' Star Returns To TV And Everyone Was Freaking Out

Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid was basically a requirement. Pretty much everyone had to watch it, otherwise everyone else would think you were crazy. Seeing all those bratty kids roam around the chocolate factory, demanding Wonka explain all of his eccentric genius is one of those things that I think was supposed to make me think Wonka was being mean, but really it just made me hate those kids - even Charlie. I know he was technically the hero of the story, but even he broke off from the group and invaded a space he

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.


'Murphy Brown' Revival Reveals Who They've Cast As Her Son But We're Still A Little Nervous

It was just a couple of months ago that we all got both excited and a little nervous for the Murphy Brown reboot. Sure, we loved the show when it originally aired, but as a rule, reboots are never as good as we want them to be. The show was unlike any others of its time. First of all, the lead character was a woman. Second of all, she was a woman with a controversial history. The recovering alcoholic was a career-focused woman, but she also made huge breakthroughs for women on television. She was a single mother, one who


'Growing Pains' Stars Reunite To Reveal Their Favorite Memories From The Show We All Loved

Watching Growing Pains was one of the highlights of our week when we were kids. The Seaver family meant a lot to us, and it was such a sad day when it ended. Alan Thicke was the amazing patriarch of the family, but it was the kids that we all cared about. Kirk Cameron's character, Mike, was stealing hearts, Tracy Gold's character, Carol, was inspiring students, and Jeremy Miller's character, Ben, was causing trouble, but we loved him anyway. Recently, the three iconic and original Seaver children got together to share some of their favorite moments, and it makes us
