    This just in - Hollywood rapidly running out of ideas. What's next, a two hour episode I mean movie about ALF?

    Let's hope they don't butcher this one as horribly as they did Miami Vice.

    I'm so disappointed already. They need to embrace the campiness, otherwise they're gonna have just another lame action flick. There was so much great stuff in the original: Mr. T being scared of flying, shooting thousands of rounds but never actually hitting a badguy (just their tires), building ridiculous contraptions, welding... I could go on forever.

    Yeah I guess I did - I think I was busy in 1996 watching movies that don't suck.

    Me and my dad find it sad that the only original ideas in hollywood are deemed to risky to get funding.

    I pity the foo who has to play Mr. T but can't live up to amount of pity-per-hour he can distribute.

    Seeing at Mr T obviously needs the money (WoW commercials? seriously!?) I'm sure he'd be the only original cast member.

    I can

    Things are far too PC these days for Hanibal to have his trademark cigar but he wouldn't be the same character without it.

    I wonder what they're going to do instead?

    Imagine if they go for the whole preachy angle and he's constantly chewing nicotine gum because "don't smoke kiddies, it's bad for you".

    That would be terrible.

    I have a whole list of predictions about this film, but I'll save them for another post.

    Has anyone managed to successfully bring back anything from the '70s/'80s?

    The only good example I can think of is Battlestar Galactica but that might even be debatable. I guess Transformers was pretty decent, too.

    Miami Vice was poor, the new Knight Rider is pretty ridiculous, the Bionic Woman floped (though I thought it was coming around when it was canceled), and I don't even want to remember the Dukes of Hazard or Starsky and Hutch.

    And look to the near future - a G.I. Joe move (early rumors don't sound promising)

    I wish they would leave The A-Team to my fond childhood memories.

    I thought the first 'Charlies Angels' had the appropriate amount of cheese... not too bad a rehash.

    So, nothing like this episode then?

    I won't be going to see it - well, unless of course someone slips me some drugged milk and I wake up in the cinema.

    I'm sure I won't fall for that trick again, though...

    I love watching the A-Team. I especially liked how they could shoot a thousand rounds of ammunition and never hit anyone!:D

    Osama bin Laden may be able to destroy buildings, but leave it to Fox to threaten America's brain cells.

    The only way this is gonna be any good is if Jack Bauer shows up in the first five minutes and guns everybody down.

    At least it's being called the same thing, unlike "Eagle Eye" where they ripped pages out from a bunch of other scripts to come up with this one... :eek:
