    This one sounds worse than the '90s reboot. I don't support a female Roarke at all. I'm hoping this doesn't get out of planning stages.

      If it's any consolation, this sounds nothing like the original show in any way. They took the barest skeleton of the concept into something totally different.

        Yeah, that's true. I just hate the idea of it being a "reboot" and destroying the concept in the process. I mean, I just think some shows should be left as they were, no reboots, no anything, just reruns. *shrugs* ^_^

          Me too.
          It is a double-edged sword though. As they take "inspiration" from something old, they also generate interest in the source. Hopefully. I know I started watching Dark Shadows when that movie came out. I didn't see the movie, but I checked out the show.

            True, that's how I am with Star Trek and its reboot. The Star Trek reboot renewed my interest in the original Star Trek series. (I prefer the reboot though)

              Here's hoping for a cancellation.
