Buzz Challenge: What Should We Recast Next?

Lately I've heard some outcry regarding the TV shows and movies chosen for the recast challenges, with many people claiming Heathers in particular to be "too sacred" to play with. So, I'm asking you: Which TV shows and movies would you like to recast?

I should also repeat, again, that this is all in good fun. I am in no way claiming the original versions of these shows or movies were lacking. It really is just a game!

If you don't like the recast challenges at all, you don't need to participate. Some people think it's fun so let them enjoy it! To those people, I say leave your ideas in the comments section and we'll get to recasting those shows and movies!

I think recasting Cheers would be blast- Make it multiracial-as Boston really is-or maybe even put a May-December spin on it- in favor of the women...Say, maybe, Billie Dee Williams-(Will Smith?) as Sam, can't picture Diane-Suppose Christie Brinkley's gonna be looking for work?... the thin bald guy from Drew Carey's extemporaneous show as one of the bar flies...

I love the recasts, so please keep doing them. I don't know why anyone would be getting bent out of shape over a game! I loved My So Called Life, but it would be interesting to see a recast for that one. I also vote for Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place, Family Ties, The Wonder Years, and St. Elmo's Fire.

oh yeah... and keep the challenges coming! I've had fun with the 2 that I've participated in, and it's fun! I know, for me, my feelings are often that the cast was perfect the first time around, but isn't it fun to think about who might have filled those actor's shoes and also done a remarkable job? I think so!

I'm a fan of the 80's (early 90's too), so I'd love to see many of those favorites recast with today's actors Growing Pains The Wonder Years The Cosby Show Full House Roseanne Who's the Boss for a movie... Pretty Woman! Who could capture Julia Roberts' character???

Seriously, people have complained?! Good grief! This is all in fun--and one of my favorite features. I love the I Love Lucy suggestion; here are a few more: The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Waltons, Golden Girls (did we do this one?), Dynasty, The Sting, Citizen Kane,M.A.S.H., Psycho, Monty Python. Keep those challenges coming, Buzz!
