Travel back to the early 1980s to learn whether a failed pitch for a "Doctor Who" animated series became a cartoon about a time-traveling Fonzie from "Happy Days."
I'm not entirely sure how this has happened… Should I chalk it up to the recent flu that has, apparently, boggled my mind in ways that I hadn't realized (I blame the coughing that made my head hurt from its violence)? Is it the result of years of use and misuse changing my mind? I have no idea, but somehow, I think I've come to the realization that "jumping the shark" isn't actually a bad thing.
What's that, you say? People actually tuned in to the new version of Charlie's Angels last week, and they might even tune in again tonight? You'd think that the remakes of Knight Rider and Bionic Woman might have killed the appetite for revisiting television's greatest hits, but apparently not. In that case, here are five pitches for revivals that we're willing to sell to the highest bidder to test nostalgia's limits.
