Get a load of this edit!

First 3 seconds: she's gazing in admiration at her "man":


Split second later:


We weren't fooled for a moment, were we? LOL

That's good to hear.

Although it would be great fun to speculate about what the new, ethnically diverse cast of a GI reboot would look like.

I wonder if Gilligan would look anything like Urkel.

DirecTV = AT&T

I freaking hate AT&T!

When I first moved into the place a year and a half ago, I called Spectrum.  They do not even have service for these homes back here in the swamp.  I was forced to call AT&T,  This place did not even have a phone line for internet service.  I asked them how soon they could get Sat. TV service up and running.

They jacked me around for days and I finally told them to forget the Sat. service.  I called Dish who was out here in only a couple days.  FVCK  AT&T!!

I never even knew they did that.

I thought it started when they cast Will Smith as James West in the crapification of The Wild, Wild West.

Or maybe Eddie Murphy as The Nutty Professor.

FWIU I Dream Of Jeannie came along on NBC a year after Bewitched came on ABC as a kind of copycat show.

The Munsters and The Addams Family were released on different networks at the same time. Maybe one network got wind of what the other was doing and decided they wanted something similar.

But yes, it was part of the early - mid 60's culture. 

Sci-fi, the space age, wacky, out of the ordinary shows were all the rage because we had just come out of the boring 1950's. 

Everyone wanted to be cool and hip and crazy.

Elvis. The Beatles. Dobie Gillis. 

Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello. Beach Blanket Bingo.

All that stuff was fresh and new back then.

Old hat now. Remakes will not rekindle the old magic. 

Everything is the internet nowadays.

Woke, PC racial, non-offensive stuff. 

We're regressing back to the boring 1950's.

It has to be the right time. Bewitched came around the same time as I Dream of Jeannie and the Addams Family and the Munsters, all kind of other-worldly.

Same with Beverly Hillbillies, Petticoat Junction and Green Acres.

And then there were all the Westerns (holy sh*t, there were a lot of 'em) and the secret agent shows and superhero shows. I remember liking Batman and the Green Hornet in the same era.

Oh, Hee Haw and Laugh-in.

What I'm saying is that these shows propped each other up. Bewitched on its own may have flopped.

Rehashes of ideas that struck a chord with society decades ago cannot realistically be expected to strike that same chord again decades later.

It was a different time and a different world in 1964 when Bewitched first appeared and I'm not sure if it did that well in the ratings to begin with. Like a lot of new shows, it might've taken a season or two for people to really warm up to it.

It was the same with Cheers.

Took a good couple of seasons or so before the writing and the actors to really develop the characters and people responded.

And speaking of Cheers.... how long before they reboot that one?

Sam Malone as a black ex-football player. Diane an aspiring... what? Female rapper? Black ballerina? Or would she be white? No, that would play into a stereotype. She'd have to be some kind of hoity-toity black girl with artistic ambitions similar to Shelly Long's original version. 

Carla would probably be a Puerto Rican with attitude and Woody would be the same kind of dumb, clueless white guy he was.

One can only speculate about Norm and Cliff.

Yeah, it's almost like they're telling us that the old show is better starring POCs. But, of course, it usually flops big time.

Agreed.

Let them come up with their own new stuff with new characters and stop thinking it's OK to co-opt our memories.

I think it's just that the traditional "underdogs" (minorities and women) feel they have to herald every achievement they make after centuries of living in a white, male dominated society and social structure.

Not saying i don't find it annoying, but I think I understand it.

I guess if I was in one of those categories, I'd be high-fiving and end zone dancing along with them.

My criteria for judging all this kind of stuff is "What would I do if I were in their shoes?"

That probably has more to do with demographic statistical record keeping.

What percentage of each age, ethnicity & gender are using which resources, etc.

I doubt that these factors are used criteria for anything.

Absolutely, 100% correct-a-mundo. 

And thank you for dropping in to express your thoughts on the subject. Thumbs Up 

Re: the Bewitched reboot.... ugh. Sick

Just ugh. Sick

Elizabeth Montgomery and Dick York will be spinning in their graves 

And Dick Sargent will too, for that matter.
