At the Television Critics Association summer press tour, The CW honcho Dawn Ostroff recently told reporters that they were considering remaking more classic shows. Well, given how terrible 90210 and the one episode of Melrose Place I've seen are, that seems like a horrible idea. Still, if they're going to go ahead with this, there are plenty of short-lived or underrated shows from the great (and greatly missed) WB network that could make The CW much better than it's been in its short history, and they can do it without ruining our somewhat fond memories of shows like Dawson's, Everwood or Gilmore Girls.
If you're a fan of the films of Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) -- and who isn't, really? -- then you've probably heard of the British TV show they collaborated on from 1999-2001, called Spaced, starring Pegg as a comic book artist and Jessica Hynes (nee Stevenson) as his roommate-of-necessity. If you've seen it at all, it's likely on a region-free DVD player, a VHS tape, YouTube or (gasp!) a bootleg DVD -- but no longer. Spaced will come out on a Region 1 DVD on July 22!
