Whilst watching SWAT this morning my thinky brain came out. What is it about certain remakes that works for the bulk of their particular fandoms and what makes it sink like a stone?

I love SWAT, both the movie and the TV Series it came from, y'all know my love of Hawaii Five 0 and I loved the original too, but in a similar vein I loved Dukes of Hazzard, hated the movie, same for the Addams Family, McHale's Navy and a myriad of others.

I'm pretty sure I'd kill to see Black Sheep Squadron remade, but only if they do it properly.

And then there is Charlie's Angels. Sexist or not I loved the original, could just barely tolerate the movies (but I think that was due to Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz and my love for them) and can't even take the abomination that is the remake series seriously.

What is it that makes us love the remakes so much? Is it our love for the new actors? The reworked story? our need to see our favourite characters from our youth continue to live? or something completely different?

So I watched the finale. I've been on pins and needles for the last week waiting for it but when all was said and done for me it was a little anticlimatic.

OMG, How much have we missed Steven J. McGarrett. They could have told us on they were on the moon and I wouldn't have given a FRA, Danny's boyfriend's back, and Wo Fat's gonna be in trouble.

Under the cut there are spoilers and all sorts of speculation, from the last two episodes of the Season that almost sucked the life out of fandom.

Spoilers all over the place )

You can look at an icon and know just from Steve's gun and facial expression which episode and even which specific scene it came from.
