Rebooted Shows That Should Have Stayed In The Past

You can have a school reunion, but you don't go and hang in the canteen in your 50s. IT'S OVER.

We didn't need the movies, and we don't need the reboot. VALE SAMANTHA! Source: Pedestrian TV

Sex and the City (SATC) is BACK, yo, but with one glaring omission: no Samantha! Our 90s heroines Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte will return to HBO for a 10 part miniseries, 'And Just Like That...' following on from the original SATC franchise. I...am not really for it. They're a four! Do Friends reunite without Phoebe, Scrubs without Turk, The Office without Michael (wait...)? We've talked about TV Shows That Turned Like Spoilt Milk, and a lot of these had to do with killing off the main character. Samantha was my favourite, and it feels insulting and kind of despo to go on without her.


That said, will I hate-watch? 110%.


There's plenty of amazing shows that had great (or terrible) endings and should have left it there. I'm not talking about reboots with a new cast (Dynasty, 90210, ick) but the cast coming back for 'one last time.' Guys, common. You can have a school reunion, but you don't go and hang in the canteen in your 50s. IT'S OVER. That's not shade at being in your 50s - Grace and Frankie is one of the best shows ever - but you can't recreate the magic. It's done.
