Firstly, can I just say that the word “reboot” is really weird when you say it over and over in your head just a few times. Secondly, do you guys remember that Saturday Morning Cartoon (yes I capitalize that!) ReBoot? That’s not the show they’re rebooting, although that would have made for an excellent segue. Instead, we are looking at a new Charlie’s Angels tv show.
Melrose Place 2.0, 90210 2.0, Matlock 2.0 – I don’t think this fad will ever end. It’s like when reality tv shows started catching on. And now? We’re PLAGUED with reality tv. At any rate, Charlie’s Angels 2.0 is a show I might actually watch. Of course, I think I already watched a revamp of it in the 90’s under another name (She Spies).
ABC News has reported that Drew Barrymore has been talking about developing the show, and ABC seems like they’d gobble up the pilot. Barrymore was in the Angels movies, but I doubt she’d be in the show. As fun as the show COULD be, it demands we face the question…are we really so badly out of ideas that the most promising shows are ones we preface with ‘the new’?
Now that you’ve had time to digest the idea… does the idea of a Charlie’s Angels reboot appeal to you? Would you even be willing to watch one episode or do you turn your nose up at this entire business? Is this a lot of questions? Shut up, now tell me where you got those shoes!
