Oh that's easy for me!!! Lassie!!! :)

I would love to see fantasy island re-made.... Although, again, I'm afraid our present-day, can you top this - nothin is off limits mentality would make it something completely different....

Little House on the Prairie might be good if they got right. Goodnight Johnboy, LOL. Not risque enough for today's audience though.

Baa Baa Black Sheep was good, McHale's navy, F troop.

For a movie I think I would like to see how a remake would turn out would be for The Breakfast Club. I do not think there is a "Brat Pack" in todays world, and I am not sure the original could be beat but I would be up for seeing what they could do with it.

Oh, and loved Grizzly Adams and his bear Ben, that was a great show. These were shows of simpler times. I think some shows I have mentioned would fail today with the in your face shock value to get ratings. I love a good, simple right from wrong type drama. You know, tv that used to teach people something about morals.

That certainly was not All in the Family back in the day.......LOL
There is no way a show like that could make it on TV now a days and a todays remake would not be the same. I remember watching that with my Grandfather when it first came out.
Carroll O'Connor certainly played up the part.

Today's shows still have morals. They are just different. They can all be boiled down to just one: its OK if you just don't get caught.

I used to like the fist fights in old TV westerns such as Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, the Cisco Kid. These fights were over with quickly and no blood! Also the gun fights. No blood,
and the shots were always to the shoulder ("its OK, its only a flesh wound Tonto")

I would love the old Seinfeld gang to get back together--Seinfeld, George, Kramer and Elaine... I got a little bit of a reunion on Curb Your Enthusiasm, but not enough! I loved that show!

I love that movie! My older cousin took me to see it when I was little.

I'm with Rob, nothing could touch the original M*A*S*H. I even got my kids addicted to it. Before the fire we had the entire series on DVD. I enjoy finding some of the old shows on Netflix. It's amazing how some of them aren't quite the same for me anymore, whether it's because I've changed or if the change is in the technology or something else.

They've already done a remake of Dirty Dancing....it's called Dirty Dancing: Havana Night. I'm not sure if it's an ACTUAL remake, or if its spin off.

They remade footloose and i've heard it's pretty good.
