'A League Of Their Own' Is Coming To TV And We're Hoping It's A Home Run

We all learned that there was "no crying in baseball," but apparently there is a lot of laughter, because A League of Their Own is coming back, but this time as a half-hour sitcom! The classic 90s movie about the baseball league that was created during the second World War stole audience's hearts, and they are hoping that there are still a few home run stories to tell with a new show. It's kind of a reboot, so I get it if you're hesitant, but even if you don't like the new show, there's always the original movie to go

'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

Steve From 'Blue's Clues' Wants The Thinking Chair Back, And He's Willing To Fight For It

Hosting a kid's show is probably pretty fun, but I assume it gets a little bit tedious. I mean, even Sherry Lewis must have gotten annoyed by "The Song That Never Ends" after a while. It's a lot of repetition, and reviewing a lot of really basic skills, but I guess seeing the smiles on all those kids faces makes it all worth it. Blue's Clues was one of the biggest kids shows around, and millions of kids would sing along with the "Mail Time" song multiple times a day (much to their parent's annoyance). The host of the show

Fox Really Wants A 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' Reboot, And Honestly We'd Rather Get Staked

Bad news everyone, the reboot train is still chugging along, picking up unwilling and unwanted passengers along the way. At first the reboots were cute. It was nice to have those little reminders of our past. Sure, tell me what happened to the Tanner sisters, I'll admit I was curious. Or remake my favorite Disney movies with real humans instead of cartoons, because I can very easily ignore those and just watch my old VHS versions a hundred times. I know I shouldn't be too precious with the past, because a lot of things we grew up watching were remakes

The New 'Roseanne' Opening Has Been Released And We're Having Serious Flashbacks

Over the last few months we've been waiting for the Roseanne revival, and now that we're getting down to the wire, we've started to see even more of the new season of the classic show. When the show ended, everyone was a little bit confused and sad. Dan was gone, and we were all pretty upset that we wouldn't be spending some time with the Conner family anymore. They were one of the great TV families and for some reason their dysfunction made our crazy lives feel normal. It was one of those shows that you could curl up on

'The Oregon Trail' Is Back And More Portable Than Ever, And We Can't Wait To Die Of Dysentery

Growing up, we didn't really have the same advanced video game as kids today have. We had to use our imaginations. Sure, looking back it was a little bit less than impressive, but honestly, we had more fun playing those simple games than almost any of these extremely complicated ones. Oregon Trail is perhaps one of the most notorious and iconic games that we played during computer class. It seemed to be loaded up onto every school computer, so that we could learn all about traveling on the frontier, including the struggles that came with it. Sure, about 90% of

The Preview For The New 'Grinch' Movie Is Out And We Can't Decide How Angry To Be

Listen, I get it, remakes are easy money. You've got a built-in audience who will try to support it no matter what, but there comes a time when enough is enough right? Sure, the Jim Carrey version of How The Grinch Stole Christmas was already a remake of the original cartoon that we all grew up with, but then we had both. One perfect cartoon that gave us the exact telling of the book, and then one amazingly hilarious live-action version that expands the world we already loved. That was enough though. One of each. Live-action, perfect. Cartoon, classic. That's

'Blue's Clues' Is Coming Back, But You May Not Like The New Look

We all remember watching Blue's Clues right? Sure, a lot of us were older, but personally I remember the kids I used to babysit being obsessed with it. "There's a clue!" the children would scream at the top of their lungs, and I would cringe, because I knew that Steve wasn't going to hear them. They would only scream louder, but he would pretend like he couldn't see the big blue paw print in the middle of his cartoon house. This would go on for many, many minutes. Steve took care of Blue, while solving the mysteries that she would

Time To Get Back To Work Because '9 To 5' Is Getting Remade, And You'll Actually Be Excited For It

Watching 9 To 5 as a young woman was always a fun experience. There was something so satisfying about watching these three smart women work together to take down their corrupt boss .Sure, we could argue about the legalities of them holding their boss captive, but what's the fun in that! He was a bad man who was lying, blackmailing, and was just all around evil, so the fact that they had to trap him to find out that he was embezzling money from the company is not the point. My main takeaway, as a younger girl who didn't understand
