It seems to me every time they remake a show it suffers from "we loved the show so much, we had to change it completely."
Having said that. I can see a lot of good options if the show was remake. However their biggest problem will be explaining the passing a new planets every other week.
People are a lot more space savy these days.
If they can fix the warp-speed issue (which they did try to explain at least twice in the first season) this could be really interesting.
Of course, I'd also love to see a re-imagine of UFO (for which Space:1999 was originally intended as a quasi-sequel).
if they achieve what they did with galactica, we'll have at least 2 good seasons
i want a chineese medical officer who plays with acupuncture to heal whatever comes through
And yet another remake... Y'know, I'm beginning to believe that there are too many remakes. I mean, some shows were too good to make a remake, spinoff, sequel, prequel, or anything with it. Just leave it there, in peace and dignity.
I'm not saying that Space 1999 is such one (which I'm sure there are some who see it as such), I just think that the whole remake-business is destroying legends in general.
they dont care. it brings money every single time. that's the fantastic world we are living in. nobody likes it except the ones who get the money
I mean, in a way every James Bond movie is a re-imagining, after all. Heck, there's even an Internet theory that says James Bond isn't the character but the code name for a succession of agents (ie - each actor really IS a different Bond, all sharing a single cover story).
Still, I think since we're safely past 1980 and 1999, remaking these two properties could be seriously cool. And thanks for the head's up on that UFO site. Had NO IDEA that was in the works!
But, in BOTH cases they'd better keep the damned theme-song, or have something really like it!
although I could see the warp issue being covered with an "experimental" lab issue on the moon going awry and sending the moon off.
