Meme of the week: Bring ’em back alive

It’s the last time meme of the week pops up on a Monday before disappearing to its new Wednesday home, so let’s make it a good ‘un.

Suppose you’re in charge of a TV network – any TV network: what TV programme would you remake? If you’re feeling adventurous, what would be your dream cast? If necessary, the original cast could have been in cryogenic storage since the series was cancelled. Answers in the comments section below or on your own blog if you leave a link.

Remember anything goes: if Knight Rider and Survivors can come back, whatever you want is almost certainly going to be able to make a reappearance.

Me? I’d like some new episodes of Ivor the Engine and Airwolf. You?
