The Top 10 TV Shows That Should Be Brought Back, Rebooted Or Just Re-Run

October 5th, 2012 3:07pm EDT
Miami Vice
TV remakes are either hit-or-miss, but with hollywood lacking many new ideas (seems like every other show is a crime drama or takes place in a hospital these days) we've thought of a few classic shows that we think would make the cut and stick around for a while -- if they're done correctly.

There are a number of old shows from the 70s and 80s that have been brought back in recent years, some with all new casts and edgier than their predecessors, and others featuring some of the original cast members. Others were revamped entirely, and some casting decisions killed a couple before they wer...

Colin Farrell
Colin Farrell knew it was time to curb his wild ways when he started becoming "really bad news" on the set of movie flop "Miami Vice."

The Irish actor checked into rehab for six weeks shortly after wrapping the Michael Mann film because he started to realize his addictions were becoming a big problem.

Now clean and sober, Farrell admits he has little memory of making "Miami Vice" with Jamie Foxx.

He tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "I was always very functional, but that was the first film where there were a couple of days I missed because I was f**ked. My kind of romantic fecklessne...

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

June 29th, 2009 10:48am EDT
Public Enemies
I saw "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" last week, and I really enjoyed it. Apparently among critics I was in the minority on that one. The film certainly wasn't perfect, but I didn't think it was nearly as bad as people were saying.

The surprising thing for me though, was how divided people's opinions were about it. For the most part I found that people who viewed the film fell into two camps: those that loved it and those that hated it. I didn't really encounter a many people who fell in between.

July starts out a bit slow this week with "Public Enemies," "Ice Age: Dawn of...

Actor Jamie Foxx landed in hot water in the Middle East - when he greeted fans with an 'offensive' thumb gesture. The Hollywood action hero arrived in the United Arab Emirates to film his latest movie The Kingdom making thumbs-up signs to adoring fans.

But the 39-year-old Miami Vice star was misinterpreted by locals - who took the popular Americanized hand action as a sign of disrespect. It's similar to 'giving the finger' in the West.

He says, "You've got to be careful with things out there - if you stick your thumbs up that means something completely different. So when I first ...

Irish actor Colin Farrell had a special suit commissioned for him during the filming of Miami Vice last year - complete with nicotine patches. The heartthrob is addicted to cigarettes, and producers told him he couldn't light up on set due to the high quantity of explosives in the vicinity.

Farrell says, "I couldn't smoke while I was doing any of the scenes because of all the pyrotechnics and explosives and stuff we had on set. The wardrobe department made a suit for me that included nicotine patches, but they kept melting in the Miami sun."
