Ii hope The In-Between is a no show. I hate rehashes.

I wish they'd cancel around 95% of those cooking shows. And those Chicago shows. And those whales in wedding dresses shows. And those shows featuring fatties, shorties, whiners, and pigs abusing low-income people . . .

I count as least four shows among those renewed on CBS that are remakes of old shows.  :lol:

Thank you, Virgil Vox.  I like knowing what is worthy of investing my time in watching.

Although some of the renewals have me baffled.

CBS' Blood & Treasure premiered a few weeks ago, actually. The seventh episode airs tonight.

It's okay as a modern-day Indiana Jones adventure serial (with the caveat that logic and physics are strained in the exact same way they were in Indy movies), though I don't see it lasting long.

A good story can come from any idea, even if you didn't like what was done with it before. I hated "Miri," but I realized I could get a cool story out of a side issue it raised, if I assumed the Earth-duplicate planet in the episode had somehow crossed over from a parallel timeline, and then worked out what would've happened in that timeline without humanity being around. (In Star Trek: Department of Temporal Investigations: Forgotten History.) In fact, I've gotten a number of cool Trek stories out of elements from episodes or films I disliked. It's always possible to redeem an idea with a good enough story.

Heck, sometimes the problem with the original story is that it didn't explore the ramifications of an idea fully enough. If you didn't like the story that grew out of the destruction of Romulus in the movie, maybe that's because there are better stories about it still waiting to be told.

I haven't been watching it, because I've gotten burned two summers in a row on enjoying a "light summer adventure fare" series that got cancelled, and this seemed like the contender for this year's version of that... but I see that this one *has* been renewed.  It feels like the same phenomenon as my town's sports teams always losing as soon as I try to pay attention to a game.  :)

Funny, Miri was one of my favourite episodes, although as an adult, all these years later, I can't make myself sit through it.

Nyaah, nyaah-nyaah NYAAH, nyaah . . .

The guy in that episode later appeared in the Bonnie & Clyde movie as a driver, if I'm remembering rightly.

Same here on both counts. The best way to curse the home team is to pay attention to them :)

"Nothing new about that"
What an ironic retort. I believe that's exactly the complaint.

Ninety-something percent of everything is a rehash. While everything draws inspiration from what wen t before (that's what the public/culture is prepared to accept), I personally believe (without a sufficient survey of the scope of the arts, political and ideas in general) that more of what has proven to have GREAT enduring appeal has been less rehash than more, and then greatest success of overt rehashes has overwhelmingly come fron what it did that was new vs what was the same or rehashed.

I'd consider that unnecessary pre-judging which obscures the merits of a project's unique merits. Good things come from many unlikely sources. Often they are good in unintended or unexpected ways. Though I do agree that JJ (who has made some good things) is an unlikely source of good Trek, it's not because they've all been ungood, but rather because (to many of us) they've been unTrek. I try to enjoy them for what they are. Much as I find Shakespeare's inaccurate remakes of older tales entirely enthralling.

When I saw the first three episodes of Andromeda, I set off in search of a website where I could criticize and mock it. It took a few weeks (via other places and Beatle5) but, by Halloween 1999, I ended up on SS-BBS and then here. Now I find myself trying to explain how the brilliant elements of the first few seasons of this lesser-known TV SF show raise it well above the mainstream of popular SF TV.

On this we entirely agree.

Yes, but people always complain about it as if it were a recent trend, as if it hasn't been done before and is evidence that "Hollywood has no originality left." Which is itself a highly unoriginal complaint that audiences have been making for almost as long as Hollywood has existed.

Well, yes, that last bit is the point -- there's a big difference between an artist's subject matter and its execution, and just doing a story on the same topic doesn't mean it will be done the same way. Pretty much all of Shakespeare's plays were "rehashes" of earlier stories, but he made them so much better than the originals that hardly anyone remembers the originals anymore.
