My Mind Is Weighted Down With Thoughts Like These

I apologize for running late, but my mind’s been weighed down all day with the idea that a couple years ago someone announced they were doing a new Golden Girls, even though everyone knew it would have to be awful and an enormous and sad failure. And then I don’t remember ever hearing anything about it again. I don’t think this really happened, but it feels so much like something that could have happened that I don’t feel safe shrugging it off either. But also I’m not bothered enough to go checking. Still, if anyone happens to be at Television Master Command, if you want to poke your head in and say, “Now don’t go doing a new Golden Girls and don’t use this as a prompt to start one!”

  1. It could never happen! After the Israeli version that ran from 2011-2016, the Dutch one that flopped in 2012, & the Black one that devolved into a talk show in 2020, the 2021 attempt ended up as just a clip show/documentary on the original.


    1. I don’t know, this makes it sound like there’s a fair chance it will happen, really. If nothing else maybe as a musical version done for high school drama clubs that somehow turns into a movie. That feels like a route things should be taking by now.
