Are there any fresh ideas left in Hollywood?
Do they have to take every show, whether good or bad or indifferent and put it through the ringer?
We're putting our foot down with 13 shows that should never get the reboot treatment.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended on a completely perfect note. Sunnydale was destroyed, every future Slayer was awoken, and Buffy was finally free of the bondage that she always felt as the one Slayer. To reboot the show would be foolish. There can only be one Buffy: Sarah Michelle Gellar. (Let's pretend that movie never existed.) To revive it would cheapen the impact of it's perfect ending. Let's leave this perfect piece of television history alone.
Sex and the City
Sex and the City was a great, campy look at four gal pals and the ups and downs of their sex lives. When it ended, Carrie Bradshaw had more or less gotten happy ending but if it were to be brought back, where would it go from there? The women as part of married couples complaining about their lack of sex? Would Samantha suddenly be the new Blanche from the Golden Girls? Best to let it go...
Burn Notice ended on the perfect moment of Michael and Fiona raising Michael's nephew, and him telling him the story of his life with the opening line from every episode "I used to be a spy...". It was poetic, touching, and perfect. Let Michael and Fiona have their "happily ever after" and leave them be.
How I Met Your Mother
How I Met Your Mother. They ruined an entire 9 season run in the series finale. It should remain dead and buried forever.
Despite the fact the ending of The Sopranos was clear as mud, there was beauty in the ambiguity that allowed for viewers to determine the true fate of Tony and his family. And with the passing of James Gandolfini, The Sopranos should rest just as he is.
The Golden Girls
The Golden Girls are seared into our memory and portrayed to perfection by the original actresses. While there could be different characters, we're never letting go of Dorothy, Blanch, Rose or Sophia.
