    As far as I'm concerned, this is as needless as the "re-imagining" of Miracle on 34th Street or Planet of the Apes. But I guess the networks and studios will mess with just about anything when ratings and revenues are sagging. SIGH...

    I suspect this was greenlit during the threatened writer's strike.

    I was thinking the same thing. There's nothing wrong with the original movie. It holds up well over time.

    Not to mention those godawful promos for the movie...what are they all about??

    If you had never seen the original, you wouldn't know anything about the hardship that Piccolo went through.
