That would really be a shame indeed, I thought the first season was excellent.

An adaptation of The Boys with Karl Urban as Billy Butcher? I'll buy that for a dollar.

Watched the first season of Cobra Kai.

I liked it, reminded me of my youth when the KK films ruled schools n playgrounds.

Very conflicted about this . Buffy was and still is an all time favourite. Would I like more , yep , do I want new... I don't know . Granted the generation who watched it then aren't really the target audience now , but I'm not sure what a new version brings to the table . You could quite happily have used the existing mythology and have a new slayer.

Would you want more Firefly if they just remade it with new actors?

It did for the most part. It's not too far away in terms of time, the original BSG was 1978 and the remake 2004, only a few years shy of the Buffy time gap. But the original BSG whilst remembered fondly and watched as a kid - was absolute shit. It really was. Cashing in on the Star Wars effect , ropy acting, effects and story lines.

The remake to begin with was an excellent remake, it took all the familiar elements and improved upon them , gave it a vastly different feel and generally out shone the original.

Although I think the remake seriously loses it's way after series 3 and the final two years are simply not a patch on the first 2 and in many ways becomes as much a pile of horse shit as the original ever was.

For me , Buffy doesn't need that re-imagining. There was 7 years of excellent and well executed TV. There was 5 years of Angel , which again for me excellent and cancelled in it's prime. But between the two , that was 12 years of good stuff with the potential between the two for more. Some of which has been addressed and explored in the comics.

Possibly , probably yes? Because Firefly only had a brief run , was genuinely entertaining and the cast were pretty great. Serenity did a great job however of giving that crew another adventure and works really well on it's own. Again with both things you could continue / carry on without the need for a reboot whether they use the original cast as well. Ala Star Trek > TNG > DS9 > Voyager , same universe, same themes, different concepts and sensibilities which are all pretty complimentary or each other.
