Listen, you won’t hear us complaining about Hollywood’s obsession with reboots. We’re all for deserving series seeing their second coming. But we do have one bone to pick with TV execs: Why not choose from some of the fantastic series that got canned too soon?
There’s no denying that revisiting beloved characters from longstanding series like Roseanne feels like coming home.
