I want an adult version of Blue's Clues starring either Jim Carry or Christopher Walken as Steve.

I think Stargate Infinity is a show that could do with starting over again from scratch. Exploring what a Stargated Earth would be like some decades ahead in time, with better writers, and without a PSA/"the more you know" approach.

And while it might be a bad idea to continue the story of Serenity, I'd like to see another show set in the Firefly universe. There should be plenty more to work with there.

I really liked the Battlestar Galactic mini-series and at least the beginning of the first season. . . .It went badly off the rails at some point.

Dresden Files.  It was adapted so very poorly, and really deserves a better go of it.

Rome. Without prematurely pulling the plug this time.

(I think) the BBC once produced a kickass documentary style series called Paranormal Supernatural Science.

The animated Justice League (hold the Unlimited)

"Dark Angel." it set up a lot of good ideas that were wasted in the terrible 2nd season.
I wouldn't be opposed to Jessica Alba coming back as Max and jumping forward 15 years.

Yes it was silly at times, but it was a lot of fun.

wow BJ and the Bear. I had forgotten about that. I know a woman who loved that show and BJ so much she named her kid Barry John, just so she could call him BJ. I preferred the chimp  ;)

I loved Space 1999. It needs a reboot, it hasn't aged well
We have almost got Fantasy Island with Westworld.

I rethought BJ and the Bear, this time around BJ is a smart woman in her 30s with a flock of slightly stupid muscle guys each with a different stereotype who work in her trucking company (late in the series we find out she is the daughter of BJ and "stacks").  Lobo is an ageing female redneck sheriff, crooked but lovable. 

Space 1999 would work nicely as a reboot.

I think Fantasy Island explores the mythological and supernatural worlds more than the future science of Westworld

I guess 6 Billion Dollar man would work better

"Salvage 1" A family owned junkyard company travels around the world and in space in order to claim salvage from impossible places.

Original was in 1979 staring Andy Griffith and they salvaged Apollo program space "junk" on the moon in the pilot episode. This would make a great reboot.

A woman as BJ might require a name change  ;) or embrace it and go all in with the double entendres

How did I miss that? It sounds like a show 17 year old me would have loved

There's some old quality BBC science fiction that could use a remake. I'm thinking specifically of Blake's 7 here.
