    Yes. Yes yes yes. A million times yes. This has been one of my top remake fantasies for years.

    I would make Isaac be Ralph's successor since Ralph is no longer able to carry on the mantle, plus he has terminal cancer. Or make Isaac be either Ralph's or Bill's son. That way it's not a total reboot.

    Lord and Miller have a pretty solid track record when it comes to stuff like this. Very cool.

    The hard part for me is going to be accepting another Fed agent who isn't Robert Culp. Culp was my favorite in that show. Newbie is going to have big shoes to fill.

    Agreed. William Katt is a solid actor but Robert Culp really inhabited the role of Bill Maxwell. In fact in the season 1 DVD set Culp said that Bill Maxwell was one of the few characters who really got under his skin, and it showed. I think the smart move with that character in particular would be to go the route of the second TV version of Nikita (or Heath Ledger's Joker), and make him a different enough Bill Maxwell that the rebooted character can find his own path.

    The one thing I hope they don't do is make the Fed agent a female; there are other ways to introduce complications than that....

    With those two doing it, I could see it having potential.

    I would miss Robert Culp's Bill Maxwell. There was a miniseries a few years ago - "Truth, Justin and the American Way" - that was an affectionate homage to GAH. Justin was a 20something slacker and the agent was more of a Homeland Security nutjob. Very funny and had a lot of good elements they could incorporate into this new series.
