I remember the original, especially weekday afternoon reruns. I find this new version contrived, shallow, and geared to the "How many gunshots, car crashes, and explosions can we fit into this one?" mentality. They moved much too fast to bring the new versions of the characters together, the death of a parent by a bad guy was far too cheap a plot device, and naturally someone has to have an ex-spouse and only partial custody of a child who has a step-parent. It's really pretty sad. If they'd done a two hour opener maybe it wouldn't all have come across so cheaply, and maybe a more creative writer or writing team would have helped a little too. I mean it, unless I feel like hearing the new version of the old themesong again (which at least seemed pretty true), I will never watch this show again. If you're waiting to watch it off your TiVo, make up your own mind, but brace yourself for an hour's worth of plastic entertainment.
