It's Time for Reunion TV to Go Away, for Good

I'll be the first to admit that I watched every single episode of Gilmore Girls with my mom and was heartbroken even after its satisfying ending. I miss the lovable Sookie, the fast-talking mother-daughter Lorelais and their uncomfortable Sunday dinners at the grandparents' mansion. Not to mention a pre-Supernatural Jared Padalecki and Scott Patterson as mommy Lorelai's main squeeze. But, I have zero interest in watching the reunion series. Why dig up an old show to potentially ruin it with a half-baked reboot? Don't we have enough great shows to watch on TV right now that we don't have to make a desperate attempt to revive old ones? I mean, isn't that TV Land is for? 

So no, I can't bother to get excited for the  Gilmore Girls 2.0 (despite its sentimental trailer). And for that matter, I'm not here for a Full(er) HouseArrested DevelopmentGirlfriends, or any other reunion show. Leave that kind of garbage to The Real Housewives of [insert whatever city you want here]. That's where that level of "entertainment" belongs.

And now there's going to be a That's So Raven spin-off/continuation, something like that. I feel the same way as you, I loved Full House when I was young but had zero interest and seeing them all grown up. I liked Arrested Development too, but didn't get into the reunion either, although I'm sure it was pretty decent. There's too many new shows on TV that are great to watch.

LOL. I have to agree. I gave 24 LIVE ANOTHER DAY, X-FILES (reboot) and HEROES REBORN a chance, but they all left me underwhelmed and for the most part wanting.

I think once a show leaves the air, it's probably better left that way.
