Dynasty: 5 other 80’s shows that need a Reboot

Before the return of Dynasty on Netflix, Amy Walker presents several other classic 80's shows ripe for the reboot treatment...

M*A*S*H

A dark comedy that followed the United States Army Mobile Army Surgical Hospital during the Korean War. A careful mixture of standard sitcom humour and frank discussion about war and death.

A reboot of M*A*S*H wouldn’t necessarily need to be a direct remake. The basic premise could be used to adapt it to a more recent and relevant setting, such as the Gulf War. With people being more politically aware than during the original run of M*A*S*H, a reboot would allow for interesting discussion on politics–both at home and globally–the nature of war, and the effects that war has on those involved.

M*A*S*H wouldn’t be the easiest of choices to bring back, but it’s one that would allow for a broad range of tone and social commentary.

  1. This isn’t an 80s show but I would love Jonny quest would be awesome to bring back.

    Maybe gummi bears for a cartoon and then maybe a new wonder years a show set in the 80s.
