There are 9 shows there that I've never heard of.

I just clicked Thundarr the Barbarian and checked out the IMDb. Why would anyone pick that? I'm thinking it's likely to be turned into comedy but I have no idea how such a show could be rebooted in an intelligent way.

It'll probably be my favourite of the bunch. I'm looking forward to Cheers. Very easy to reboot, but will it be as funny? You need a huge pair to try something like that. Good luck.

I've never seen Nightmare on Elm Street series. I got bored of the films by the 3rd one. Another series rebooted? We'll see.

The $6 Million Dollar Man is one I wanted to reboot myself so that will be interesting.

I'm not in this one myself, by the way, but I will be reading.

Hmm, not sure that Cosby Show will get many reads for the obvious reasons. But let's see.

Well, you'll definitely need a deft hand with the writing to impress imh. During my 'research' I've read scripts for Cheers and other very popular comedy series. I discovered they don't actually read laugh out loud funny. Lucky to get a chuckle from the reading and I've enjoyed watching these shows a lot in the past.

All of which leads me to believe a lot of the success of these shows comes down to delivery by some very talented actors and physical comedy.

No pressure but I'll be on the look out for this one too.

Woody, Cliff, Norm, Carla, with their own spin offs? Hmm...
Perhaps a long lost son of Sam Malone.

Friday and Freddys I understand because they are generally anthology shows.
Quite a few animation shows here. I'm curious to see how the the writers re imagine them in a live action context.  Some of these sound really challenging.

I never heard of the anime Monster before and started watching the video clip. This would be very cool live action, if that's the individuals intent.

I think it's cool to dedicate a thread for listing the shows and the research on them. This is why I thought it's appropriate to post this here:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Scree.....tival_run_with_some/

This is someone's TV pilot and people who watched it says it's pretty cool. It's only 25 minutes long. I think it will help inspire us since the page limit is 24. I haven't found the time to watch it yet, but I was able to spare a second to share it with you. Tell me if it's any good.

Family Ties and Saban's VR Trooperswill be added shortly.  I see Becker has been added.  And that is it for tonight.

Exactly my thinking. Besides a whole team adds to jokes in these shows. I don't expect a lot of comedy on the pages but definitely some.
I personally will be looking for a structure, potential, and some entertainment value.

But whoever the rebooter of Cheers is - congrats of thinking of it. One of the best shows ever although I've seen it long time ago.

I pulled the comedy card first round of the WT and it's a crap shoot whether a reader finds something funny or not. So much depends on delivery (e.g. Cheers!) that it can be lost if the writer's mental image differs from the readers. Can you think of any other actor that could pull off Sheldon from Big Bang?

If someone is rebooting a comedy series, I think they really need to make it clear if their using the same 'actor-type' characters. If it's a whole new take with age and era, I suggest spending a great amount of time on detailing traits and tics.

But again, my mental image for most things is, well, quite mental!

Someone's doing Quincy!

Or as I like to call it, CSI: Seventies.

Really looking forward to that one.
