Here’s a story of a lovely lady…actually, it’s the story of another 70s reboot. Vince Vaughn has announced plans to return to “The Brady Bunch,” which aired originally from 1969-1974. Like CBS’s version of “Hawaii Five-0,” the plotline will take place in this century, however. The show will follow a divorced Bobby Brady (not Mike), who marries a divorcée with her own children. Reboots and remakes have had varying success; the most popular being Syfy’s “Battlestar Galactica.” On the other hand, after several feature-length films, the “Charlie’s Angels” 2011 television series fizzled out with nary a whimper.


What makes one reboot better than another? For that matter, when a reboot is good, what makes it good to begin with? What shows are you dying to return to?
