CBS to remake Streets of San Francisco (oh please don't ruin it)
CBS is going to remake the show, and I can only imagine it's going to be CSI: San Francisco. The beauty of these old shows was the cast, so I don't know what you get by just taking the title and putting new actors in there. Hopefully they'll keep the old theme song, and resist the urge to add rap lyrics to it.
The writer of the remake says the time is ripe for a remake because these days mirror what the 70s were like: Vietnam War/Iraq War, protests, class warfare, etc. This isn't really true, but whatever. He also compares the characters of Keller and Stone to Obama and McCain.
