    Sliders would be my pick, but it would end up on Paramount+ or something and a season arc would be 'How things would be great if the confederacy won the Civil War!"

    I am in the business of saving lives.

    No it didn't. Nothing like that ever happened. You dreamed it. You saw swamp gas catch fire. It was a weather balloon. There was never a ReBoot reboot.

    Of these choices, the only reboot that has a good reason to get an update is Xena, mostly because presumably now they could just make the subtext of the Xena/Gabrielle relationship text. Also, isn't Daria already getting a new season, or something?

    Geebs has convinced me, reboot xena but they're explicitly gay

    I loved Daria but I just don't see how you reboot that show in 2023.

    And yeah, they're going to try to and I expect it to land with a thud.

    Sliders seems like the best choice.

    Since you’re not limited by a specific time or place you can get crazy imaginative with it.

    and you can't tell me that one of the big streamers couldn't make a great "an immortal fucks and chops his way through history" series, it has everything they like in it!

    We could also take a break on "everything Raijin likes because it's boring and lame," I'd be ok with that.

    Highlander whips, I want more, and it could be like a girl Highlander this time, or whatever.

    It is true. I only like lame things.

    See I am absolutely all about a reboot of Buffy, but a) it got a proper ending and b) I think on its own it wont be strong enough to compete in the hectic world of 2020s tv shows for the same shitty reasons as the failure to launch of the explicitly gay Xena

    So you switch it up on 'em

    You start with Angel, teasing the audience with insinuations to Sunnydale related lore, and then you do Buffy as a spinoff to Angel

    generation remix is back, baby

    Yeah, Javier Grillo-Marxuach wrote a pilot script but Rob Tapert, who owns the rights to Xena, didn't like it for whatever reason and shut the project down.

    I had forgotten that there already was a Buffy reboot in development, but looking it up it was shelved indefinitely. So much for that.

    Highlander is getting a movie reboot, right? Or was that shelved too?

    Highlander could be fun.

    "Javier Grillo-Marxuach"... if that's who I'm thinking... Aw, yeah, glad to see he's still kicking around writer rooms, tho.

    I'm always pleased to see Natalie Morales show up, but damn if it never seems to work out long.
