What about rebooting Dark Shadows?

 

God, no.  Every attempt at rebooting DS has made the original look more and more like "Upstairs, Downstairs."

I actually think a summer soap about young hot people in Cali might be a good idea .



They already rebooted Dark Shadows. I was watching the reboot on Chiller not too long ago.

Good idea, but too many reboots would water the idea down...the rebooted soap should be carefully selected and done

Honestly, I think they should toss all available (that is, not protected by estate issues or other legalities) former soaps into a hat, or at least those they're truly interested in, and do 13 to 26 week novellas out of them.

For Guiding Light alone, both Blake and Ashlee are in the book business, just use the first one or two reintroduction episodes having them VoiceOver the past three or so years and go from there.

The stories are there for all the soaps, it's just whether TPTB are interested in those stories.

I'm sick of young hot people. Most of them are vapid wastes of humanity who are too dumb to breathe.
