'Emmy nominated creator......takes uncreative route on new project' Here's an idea, if you minorities more chances to shine than stop making race-swapped unoriginal reboots. It's lazy and insulting, are you saying that minorities can't have actual original shows Stop giving us the scraps because you're not fooling anybody WB.

Isn’t the OG ‘Perfect Strangers’ an ‘Odd Couple’ reboot? Or maybe a ‘Mork and Mindy’ reimagining? Why the gender switch. The original worked because of Balki. How is that going to play out in our politically correct society. I legit read stranger things and was like do not play with me! Is this for real?! 🥰
Why not just call it something else. What kind of 'culturally appropriate' BS is this? 😄 As if they are making 'god-like' work through these idiotic remakes to 'showcase' diversity. 'Ree-dic-a-lous' Nah. You can’t recreate that comedy team magic. Are these 2 gonna grab each other by the nose/hair/shirt, smack each other around, and wrestle on the sofa? When MarkLinnBaker_ & BronsonAP did it it was hilarious, mischievous, brotherly love; if these 2 do it it’ll be soft porn.
So it’s The New Odd Couple meets The Parent Trap? People flipping out about classics — where's the classic?
HBO Max Isn’t to Blame After ‘In the Heights’ Fizzles at the Box OfficeSince “In the Heights,” a lauded adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway musical, fell short of box office expectations, it would be easy to point to its hybrid debut on HBO M… Blame the movie. It sucked..... 🤔🤔🤔🤔 Something else could also be at play and that's the lack of afro-Latino representation. After all, more than vanilla Latinos live in Washington Heights and colorism is a major issues within the Latino community.
People are truly going to be upset about anything if they are upset about a Perfect Strangers reboot. Good lord people, get a grip. Make something new for the love of -- Cultural appropriation... Means lack of originality in its own right. Why? reboot of this classic Show why? the original was better leave it alone
This is going to be so successful
