Favourite TV shows that are actually reboots
“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” is decidedly not the motto that fuels the Hollywood machine. Recent times have seen overpaid studio executives follow the dollar trail deep into the heart of nostalgia, a place where there’s no such thing as a TV show that can’t be completely—and often unnecessarily—rebooted. As with any creative endeavour, some results have fallen flat while others have inserted fresh updates. Here are 20 popular shows that you may not have even known are new takes on old classics.

"This is the most exciting episode I think I'll ever record," Jackie said from her hospital bed. "You all know from RHOM and the earlier episodes of my podcast, that the journey we went through to get to today, we are so excited and completely in love with our babies who have arrived into the world."

Jackie reveals that the night before going into the hospital for her C-section, she was "freaking out" about becoming a mother. And that her overthinking continued into the delivery and beyond.
"The night before I was having anxiety, thinking am I going to be a good mother? Grieving my old life and thinking oh my god, this is really happening! Have I got everything ready for the babies? Do I have all the things I need? What happens if I do this wrong or do that wrong?"
"All these thoughts were running through my mind, I kept overthinking. I didn't sleep a wink. Think every thought, I thought it times 10. It was a moment of excitement but still having fear and doubt about everything working out as it should."

Who are Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Baldwin's kids?
Just last March, Alec Baldwin joked he was done having children. "When my kids graduate school, I'll be 85," the actor told People magazine at the time. "As my friends say, when your kids are climbing out the window and they're going to do really, really bad things when they get older, when they're in their late teen years, you'll be deaf anyway so you won't have to hear it." Fast-forward one year and he and wife Hilaria Baldwin, 37, have added not one but two babies to their brood — son Eduardo was born in September 2020 and their sixth child was born in secret recently.
"I don't mind a bit of back and forth. In fact, I'm rather famous for it. Everyone expects Dolly to be a good girl. Well, I'm the type of Dolly I want to be. My dreams aren't what they used to be. I've been through a change and I'm definitely off the leash. People think Dollys should be seen and not heard. Well, not this Dolly."
Episode three: "I'm Dolly – and there's more to me than you think. I'm a Dolly…not a Dolly bird. After missing my dream in Sydney, 2004 was when I made my mark. Am I the Queen? Yes.

"The heart is unpredictable. It has its needs. But remember: tomorrow is a brand new day. I'm Dolly and let me warn you: I'm nobody's plaything!"
Episode five: "I'm the Dolly and you're learning not to underestimate me. Dollies don't usually have a lot to say unless you pull their string. But this Dolly will never be silenced! Dollies are meant to like pretty things like rainbows, but they just make me angry. Not that I like to make waves. Actually… I do like it!
"Hmm, it's hard to decide what sort of Dolly I should be. So many choices. That one? Or maybe this one? Which version of Dolly do you prefer? I'm Dolly and I sound as pretty as I look!"

Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Brand' as his favourite ever album - revealed the two legendary bands had a close bond.

If I can make baking a competitive sport I would. Mon Dieu! My dream came to me when I was young. I had a real talent and I haven't stopped since.

I'm Pavlova and all I want is my just desserts."
Episode five: "I'm Pavlova and I think you're all sweet on me! You can take it as gospel, that I'm the boss of my kitchen. And across the ditch too. I pour my heart and soul into what I do. Twenty-one grams? It has to be more than that.

Double Surprise! Bryan Greenberg and Jamie Chung Secretly Welcome Twins
Double Surprise! Bryan Greenberg and Jamie Chung Secretly Welcome TwinsThe actors, who never made a pregnancy announcement, announced their new roles as parents on Sunday, October 24 via Instagram. Greenberg, 43, posted a clip of himself resting the two newborn babies against his chest.
Episode one: "I'm Mullet, just a knockabout bloke surprised to be here! I've spent years by the water and I've had my fair share of battles. Those night vision goggles belong to the army! I like the spotlight, but I've had more than a few sleepless nights. My answer is to take the show on the road.
"I'm not really into strict routines. I prefer to improvise. I know it's not the way to make a big hit but beggars can't be choosers. I've never really been the boss but I have been known to take your breath away. That's official. I'm the Mullet and I reckon I've got this singing thing nailed."
Episode three: "I'm just your average mullet, but I'm okay if you're okay. As someone once told me, if you like it you better put a ring on it. Sometimes you have your eye on something shiny….but it's not as good as you hope. No matter how far you travel, you can't leave the real you behind. I'm a jack-of-all-trades. I've even taken on the Chinese! Not as a comedian, but you could call me something close.
"I might be a mullet but don't underestimate me. My intelligence isn't artificial….and way better than 20! As a fish, I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I'm the Mullet, and I'm beside myself with excitement!"
Episode five: I might be a Mullet but I'm not hard-headed like others I know. The night sky is so beautiful. But I prefer the sunshine. I love it like a sibling. I'm no superhero. Just a fish trying to eke out a living in a hostile environment. There's no shame in that.
"I was number one once, y'know. But I wasn't wearing flannelette at the time. Mullets go in and out of fashion. But lucky for me, I've got more than 1 string to me bow. I'm Mullet and I've got this competition hook, line and sinker!"
Episode two: "I am the great Atlantis and I am the queen of all I see. I am a goddess of water, I am fluid taking many shapes and forms but I have been punished just for being who I am and I have been rewarded for the same reason. I am a creature of the sea, the ocean was my original home. The land holds mystery and disappointment for me.
"My world is colourful, but you wouldn't know it. It's not just black and white. Fashions come and go but words can last forever. Life is like that. I heard the siren of Hollywood many times, but Washington only once. It was one of life's happy accidents. I am Atlantis and I shall be your queen."
Episode four: "I am Atlantis – deep, mysterious and powerful. Am I Chinese? It would be easy to have that belief. But I wasn't there long. The west was where my ambition led me. Like the waves, my path has not been straight. But like water, nothing can hold me back for long.
"Words have been my life but also my greatest danger. You don't like what I have to say? Many others do. Don't confuse me for a shop girl. Or Marilyn either. Perhaps I am a do-gooder? I would be happy with that. I am Atlantis – and no one can resist a force of nature."
Episode two: "I am Lightning and you never know where I'll strike next. Lightning affects the airwaves and my interference got noticed young. I know how to make you notice me. I made other waves when I was young too! Solid stakes, absolutely! But I left the gold behind. Am I driven? More self-directed. Following the path of least resistance, going with the flow, not too many wrong turns. Although one crash did hurt.
"I've been richer and I've been poor, nine months a year without a home. Don't underestimate a good education! Will I win The Masked Singer? Well, Lightning will always have a crack!"
Episode four: "I am Lightning – high voltage all the time! Do water and electricity mix? Not usually. But I'm flexible in what I do. After all, you're not 21 forever. Although I ran a good race in Rio I got tired of staying in my own lane. No more. Strike while the lightning is hot. Lightning has a voice – and it has always been heard. Many millions have heard me speak. And I speak for those who have no words.
"Lightning only goes in one direction. And that made all the difference. I've already survived one round of The Masked Singer. Tonight, Lightning strikes twice."
Episode two: "Yeah I'm the Kebab and I reckon I got the lot. I never stop. I'm at it all day every day, there's nothing else I ever wanted to be. I'm like the inner-city; quiet at times but a bit of hot sauce, I go off. A real wild one!
"I'll let you in on a little secret. I get kissed by strangers! It's the tender meat that does the trick. It's great being the kebab and working for yourself. If you're not the type who needs other people, hey man be cool, move on bro! I'm the Kebab and I can be spectacular!"
Episode four: "I'm the Kebab and I'm totally satisfying! We kebabs have a long and proud history stretching all the way back to William the Conqueror. But me? I'm Australian as. A real beach baby. Catch you later!
"Do you know why kebab vans have wheels? Because we're always on the move. But we keep coming back to the best spot. Do you remember the first time you had a Kebab? Unforgettable, right? Is the first time always the best? I am the Kebab – and I'm all saucy tonight!"
Episode two: "I'm the Piñata and this time I'm taking a big stick to the opposition. I've moved many, many times chasing my dreams luckily I'm comfortable with both home and away. Piñatas don't have claws usually. I've learned to be aggressive, other times I'm soft and cuddly. When I started my career I had the luck of the Irish and my luck never really left me, I bet my name on it!
"Although I did back the wrong group in Melbourne. My brethren have supported me all the way, to be sure, to be sure. You'd never guess I was a scholar. Looks can be deceiving, right? You haven't seen everything piñata has to offer, I've got plenty of surprises inside!"
Episode four: "I'm a Piñata which means I can take punishment, but I've got plenty of hits under my belt too! In my business, natural talent only gets you so far. To be successful, you really have to try. And no horsing around.
"I'm colourful – and I'm comfortable with others dressed colourfully. Red, yellow, purple, whatever. And I'm not afraid to unwrap my presents in public. This Piñata ain't just hanging around! I'm going to fly like I always do."

Episode one: "I'm the Professor and I want to make the world a better place. Am I opinionated? The answer must be yes but that's not news. Knowledge is very important to me, even if it's not the type you find at university. Our mother universe is huge, the possibilities for love are just as big as long as we have some faith.
"I'm a Scientist. I don't believe in conspiracy theories. I'm always searching for the answer for the right cues. I like to think outside the square, it makes me an outsider but that's okay. I like to break stereotypes and go where others don't. I am Professor, I'm going to win The Masked Singer."
Episode three: "I am Professor – and the universe is my playground. Success in my field comes when you least expect it. It can be a young scientist's game. But it is all a search for the meaning of life and love. Understanding is the heart of science. There are some things science can't do yet. Like work out why everyone likes Mary. Or make the perfect beer.
"I don't have the Nobel Prize – yet. But you need more than ten fingers to count the big awards I've won. It's the side projects that add colour to my life."

"I am the volcano and you never know when I'll blow my top. Volcanos are here for a long time, not a good time. I know I have some dragon in my history and that's not unusual. I don't want to get emotional but I remember when Hollywood called, cultural differences were very big.
"But I'm someone who believes in grabbing life by the you-know-what. Whatever you think of me, respect my three records although you probably only know about one. Back when I was having the time of my life. Us volcanos believe in fighting fire with fire. Will I blow my top again? You can set your watch by it."

"I felt so freaking weird, man, someone is rummaging around inside me and all of a sudden they're like 'look, look at your baby!' and I'm in shock horror," Jackie says.
"I didn't want to look at my baby. I don't know what the hell was going through my mind but I was freaking out, then all of a sudden I see this baby and a minute later I see another baby and I'm like whose are they? and I realise they are mine. © Provided by Are Media Pty Ltd Jackie and her costar Janet Roach on the set of RHOM.
"They put them on my chest, doing skin on skin, and I'm going this is so weird. I cannot believe they're mine. Ben is smiling, tearing up and holding them, he's so happy, and I'm just going, is this really happening? Then when I took a moment and breathed in and out I realised I am a mother."
Spending the past few days in hospital, Jackie says it's been a whirlwind as she comes to terms with being a new mum - asking herself "what do I do now?" after being taken back to her room after the birth.
"Breastfeeding is one of the hardest things ever, hats off to the women out there who it was easy for but it ain't easy for me girl. Everything is new and I'm in pain because of the C-section. It's day three and I'm still freaking out that I'm a mother as I'm looking at these beautiful little cherubs," she admits.
Saying she "hasn't fully processed" that she's a mother, Jackie reveals "I don't know how to breastfeed properly, my milk is still coming, I don't even know if I'm doing this right."

"I have two babies that I now have to look after the rest of my life – which I'm so excited about – but I'm still freaking out about it! It is the most joyous, unconditional love I've ever felt. And seeing Ben, oh my god," she gushes.
"Listen, I'm still struggling with breastfeeding and I'm still trying to learn everything and it will take a while. I've just got to give into the process and do what works best for me and our babies. But, god us women can do amazing things. I have to say this is one of the happiest, happiest days of my life. Everybody says their own children look beautiful but they really are gorgeous."
