    I just watched my first 20 minutes of Moonlight. I liked it better when it was called "Forever Knight" (or, alternately, Angel.)

    What are other shows that seem to be retreads of older shows?

    Boston Legal= Ally McBeal or LA Law or any other drama about a group of lawyers.

    Actually, Moonlight is running on another network right now. Lifetime. Where it's called "Blood Ties."

    I'll give you the Journeyman comparison to Quantum Leap but I guess since I never saw Blood Ties or Forever Knight I can't give you Moonlight. I also never got into Angel.

    Too bad they didn't advertise Lifetime's show properly; I had never heard of it until people here started talking about the season already in progress.

    if you think those shows are the same, you've never seen more than one episode of any on them.

    I liked it better when it was called Jake 2.0.

    Heroes when it was The X-Men. (Notice how carefully they avoid saying "mutant" on Heroes?)

    Pet peeve of mine with "Heroes"... it should be called "Supers". They took the wrong half of the compound word. (There are as many villains as heroes, and many ambiguous characters, but they all have superpowers.)

    In which case, they'd get it from the other side from the guys who did The Incredibles.

    It should be reversed though... but the timeline doesn't allow for that. :)

    Nah. Totally different premise, and Dark Angel was TERRIBLE! I like Bionic Woman far better.

    I liked Bionic Woman better when Oscar Goldman was her boss.
