OH FFS! Enough of this crap.

Stop remaking shows to fit the stupid new politically correct agenda. I seriously hate this country anymore. Lets remake Martin with a white family? How about The Cosby's?? Why stop there, lets go with shows that are all Asian or Indian.

Hollywood has zero talent anymore. All they do is remake shows with an updated cast an color. It's annoying.

After we do all that we need to do it all over again to make them gay.

Maybe she can be a Haitian immigrant with voodoo powers-Sorry for the bad satire.

Black Magic or not this is still a very bad idea. We all want more black people represented, but we don't want token black people.

Sometimes methinks TV writers are too busy with their mirrors and razors to realize that we don't like actors just because they are black. We like TY characters despite their heritage, perhaps this a shameless cash in on the BLM movement.

Today the trend is to be a Jewish Haitian immigrant with voodoo powers so they can write in scenes to have them fight the Nazis.

I completely agree with this. It’s just lazy ass people who’s idea of originality is to try and place a spin on old classics where a white male character is replaced by a black/female equivalent.

It’s not interesting and it’s not new it’s not interesting it’s just crap.

Who would want to see a white version of Fresh Prince or an inverted version of Different Strokes? Nobody. Ever.

Classic films/series should be left alone unless they can be improved.

If Hollywood or the TV networks want to promote racial diversity do it by making films that are cast relevantly and show off the talents of their cast. Create a new role, create a new classic and create a new star.

We need a black James Bond as much as we need a white Shaft or a freaky reboot of Jake and Elwood as the Death Metal Brothers.

I think we need Benedict Cumberbatch to play Martin Luther King.

PLEASE do not give them the idea to remake all the classics. Now I will have nightmares thinking about that.

Dude, genies aren’t real. Neither are witches who can twitch their noses to make stuff happen. There’s no manual that says they have to be white.


The Genie was portrayed as being white so why change it?



Why not change it? How does it hurt anything? What if it’s actually better?


You must be unaware of the latest Ghostbusters movie.


Not a bad idea - just a bad script.

So ghostbusters are now women, Samantha from bewitched is black, Magnum PI is Hispanic. What next Dukes of Hazard Bo an Luke are going to be an Asian woman and middle eastern gender neutral it?

Just watch they will make her white husband a bumbling idiot. Guaranteed


Just found this and I was right.. Samanthat is described as a "hard working ,black single mother", and Darrin will be white and be " a bit of a slacker" This highlights a larger issue, white men in commercials or tv are more often than not portrayed a helpless bumbling idiots.

The new comedy series will reportedly feature a biracial couple with an African-American woman playing Samantha, per the outlet. According to Deadline, Samantha is a hardworking, single mother (and a witch), who marries Darren, "a white mortal who happens to be a bit of a slacker."

Cant they just make a new character and story thats black, instead of these blatant reparationist revisionism in your face ordeals?

Bunch of low IQ no originality posers coming up with this stuff.

There isn't enough of a mythology or back story of Bewitched for the skin-colors involved to make any difference, no matter how big of a fanboy you may be.

Next Remake ?

Italian Job with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.

From Bad Boys to really Bad boys with a good heart, and snip load of gold.

At the rate they are going.

The only places your gonna get to see white folks is on TV Land and American Movie Classics.

Everything else will have been white washed.

Erased from culture.
