Of all the TV remakes, "The Fugitive" is probably the best one.  I have
seen a couple of the old episodes of the series, and I honestly liked the
movie a little better just in the fact that it was more condensed and
much easier to swallow.  Plus, I am a sucker for Harrison Ford and Tommy
Lee Jones  :).

Gilligan's Island hasn't even been made yet, has it?  Who has been cast?
I have seen the two Addams Family films.  Very funny, I thought.  I was
disappointed in The Flintstones only in that the plot and everything
wasn't that great, but I really enjoyed the special effects in creating
the Flintstone world and the casting was pretty good (although I thought
Rick Moranis was the weakest of the four).  I haven't seen the Beverly
Hillbillies, but I was never a fan of the original series.  They are
making The Brady Bunch into a movie with Shelly Long as Carol and Gary
Cole as Mike.  I heard all the original actors were offered cameos, but
Florence Henderson turned hers down because she was offended by the
nature of the character.  Is this true?  Do you think we'll finally find
out what really happened to the first Mrs. Brady and Carol's husband?

How about a live action Scooby Doo??
