Today's the day that an entire universe dies... and gets reborn. With the heavily-hyped release of Justice League #1, DC Comics is re-starting each of its 52 superhero titles with new writers, new artists and a new continuity. Since the reboot was announced, the company has been subjected to endless fanboy slagging, but, as past experiences have shown (like, say, Chris Nolan's Batman films) sometimes there's a lot of potential in starting over from scratch. Following DC's bold example, we'd love to see reboots of the following small-screen superhero shows, some of which were pretty good the first time around, but we think could be made even better.
Way back in March, after Nick announced it was bringing back some of its '90s shows, reports surfaced that Hey Arnold! would be coming back, too -- but with new episodes. While I was happy to hear the news -- I am to this day a huge Hey Arnold! fan -- I was almost relieved to hear it wasn't true. (If you read the article, it seems the source was a high school newspaper.) The thing is, I'd rather Nick just bring back old Hey Arnold! episodes. But nothing has been said by Nick about it since. I'm thrilled that Kenan & Kel and The Amanda Show are getting a reprise -- but Arnold deserves one just as much. Here are the five reasons I think it's a really, really good show; why it holds up -- and why Nick should bring it back. (In the mean time, Season One just came out on DVD if you get desperate.)
Confession time: When I decided to watch and then write a piece about the first season of Veronica Mars as part of my internship at TWoP, I told the editors that I had never before seen the show. But I had -- just once.
