I'm curious but not really expecting much from this remake either but at least they gave up the awful idea of doing it as a comedy starring Jim Carrey. It was on the drawing board for a few years and I think finally died about 7- 8 years ago.This will be interesting to watch. Note there is that Mark Wahlberg film (Six Billion Dollar Man) reportedly coming out sometime late in 2018 as well, so perhaps this Blu-Ray release is supposed to serve as spin off merchandise to support that project.
Of course I have ZERO faith in a revamped movie or series, because the Bionic Woman reboot quickly illustrated they don't understand what made those shows work - charm and chemistry. Mark Wahlberg is NO Lee Majors. That will never work. But I digress.
Hopefully a blu ray release will be properly done and worthy of a second purchase for me. Hopefully, this time, the price will be exceptionally smaller too. I have the Time Life box set and wouldn't trade it for anything. But a blu-ray version today has to service me on an entirely different level and reflect current prices for the series as it sells now. The novelty of it not being available is over.
Of course one last point worth mentioning. Lets be careful what we ask for. The Six Million Dollar Man was never a series intended for high definition, so the production gaffs will be glaring here. Perhaps we'll even see Big Foot's zipper in his fur? With the current box set, my childhood memories are preserved. Not sure what a blu ray picture will do to that. My fingers are crossed.
