I saw the thread title, and that it was CalMeacham, and started thinking "A sequel to The Stars are Alive?" Was that a movie, or a book? Asimov maybe?

Sadly, no. (Although it would be a good alternate title for Frank Herbert's Whipping Star)

Maybe I'll write something with that as a title one of these days.

I like this.

The entire cast of WKRP in Cincinnatti is alive! I would watch a remake.

They did do a remake. Nobody watched it. Well, not as many as needed to keep it running for very long.

Note that Jan Smithers at 70 is the youngest of the survivors.

Just for the hell of it, I'd like to see Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito team up again. Most people would want to see a Twins II, but I'm partial to a remake of Junior, which ended with Schwarzenegger giving birth (what a setup for jumping ahead 25 years!) and which costarred Emma Thomson and Pamela Reed.

Or how about bringing Arnold back as Conan, this time in a Lion in Winter story, with Grace Jones as his consort, and his children fighting over who will inherit his domain.

YES! We all need more Henry Winkler in out lives. I would love seeing the Fronz having turned into someone like Winkler's recent characters.

Like Riverdale, Power Rangers, and the Banana Splits remakes, let's make it dark and edgy: Happy Days: Chuck Returns!
