Cinematical Seven: Sci-Fi Series That Need Movie Reboots
I haven’t been a fan of Hollywood’s “Let’s Remake Everything That Was Ever Popular!” plan, but I was pleasantly surprised by the reboots and reincarnations of Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, and even J.J. Abrams’ new Star Trek movie, which is out on Blu-ray and DVD today. I’d argue that maybe science fiction is immune to the remake syndrome, but then you have Michael Bay’s two awful Transformers movies. So that sort of shoots my theory in the foot.
Whatever the case, it’s been great to have so much quality science fiction to choose from lately. There’s also a hell of a lot out there that deserves a second look. Forgotten series from the 60s and 70s that have classic storytelling, great characters, and a lot of elements that make up truly good sci-fi: robots, spaceships, and time travel. So while you’re enjoying that slick new Trek Blu-ray (even the menus are amazing!) and waiting for James Cameron’s Avatar to hit screens, here are some classic science fiction properties that need some new life.
The Time Tunnel
