- What TV show would YOU bring back?
If you could bring back one TV show from yester-year that isn’t made any more, what TV show would bring back and why?
My choice would be Blankety Blank. I remember watching it as a kid with Terry Wogan and was a bit confused by it all. Only looking back on it as an adult it becomes clear that it wasn’t about winning the game at all, it was all about the guest’s wit. I reckon with today’s comedians on there it’d be pretty funny. ‘Supermatch game, supermatch game!’
Also, they never made the other episodes of ‘The Tripods’ either.
Anyway, over to you.Posted 5 months agothepuristSubscriber
The Fast show.
Nooo – these are great examples of shows that knew when to stop. Better to just do a couple of series then quit rather than limping on with the same tired old gags for ever (looking at you, Mrs Brown’s Boys. Though to quit at the top it’d have to have been pulled before the opening credits of the first episode)Posted 5 months agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
Spitting Image. We need it now more than ever.
Arguably satire is now redundant- as is characture really – how could you exaggerate the features of trump, Bannon, Farage, may, boris or gove for comic effect?
Theres no bubble for satire to burst anymore. Not with the burst boils we’ve got in politics just now. A public squeezing of their own boils seems to be what people need to do in order to get elected it seems
anyway I nominate Jim’ll Fix It. A reboot presented by Jim Al-Khalili and every week he fixes it for someone to be fired around the large hadron collider.- whether they asked him to or not.Posted 5 months agoCougarSubscriber
The Adventure Game
First thing I thought of before I’d even opened the thread. Surely ripe for a reboot with the current rise in popularity of escape rooms? Gronda gronda.
American Gothic, the original one with Lucas, Meryln, Caleb etc.
Something I didn’t realise at the time (and was very confused as a result): The show was broadcast out of order, so continuity made very little sense. Like, they’d kill off a character in one episode only for them to reappear as if nothing had happened next week. The curious thing is, they didn’t bother to fix this for the DVD box set, the episodes are on the discs in broadcast order. The show’s finalé is at the start of disc 5, so you get to see how it all ends and then you’ve got another disc and a half left to go.Posted 5 months ago
