After the news that Star Trek is getting another reboot on the little screen, the Internet is ablaze about what other sci-fi network shows from the past should be rebooted and brought into the 21st century. So, we’ve concocted a rundown of shows that we think merit a reboot.
10. Space: 1999
It is frequently referred to as a “poor man’s Star Trek.” Furthermore, this show has never gotten the regard it merits. It initially aired between 1975 and 1977, with a sum of 48 episodes. Space: 1999 was about the team of Moonbase Alpha. The team had to struggle for survival after a monstrous blast sends the Moon out of its orbit and throws it deep into space. It featured Martin Landau as Commander John Koenig. Space: 1999 had special effects that were fine and some extraordinary scripts. A large number of the episodes were obvious morality plays as they dealt with difficult decisions that Martin Landau had to make as the Commander. He was always compelled to put the security of Moonbase Alpha first. Plans were declared in 2012 for ITV Studios America to create a rebooted TV series called Space: 2099. Tragically, they remain just plans.
9. Blake’s 7
This show is venerated in the United Kingdom, where the BBC produced science fiction series kept running from 1978 to 1981, traversing 52 astounding episodes. It is acclaimed by science fiction idealists, who circulate bootleg VHS duplicates of the series. They have put up various online petitions to bring the series back or adapt it into a film. It’s a show about a group of convicts and pariahs who are on the run in profound space and battling a guerrilla war against the totalitarian “Terran Federation.” Blake’s 7 was amazing in its portrayal of villains. There were couple of respectable characters on the show but it was hard to find any of the characters really worth liking. Paul Darrow as the threatening Kerr Avon was amazing and it would be cool to see an upgraded form of the “Hero” spaceship utilized by the ragtag convicts.
