    Nope, nope, nope. I'm NOT gonna freak out and overreact. I just gonna remain calm and completely ignore this whole thing just like all the other remakes and reboots of which I did not approve.

    I'm actually not completely against this. Considering the film's roots as a play and that the play has been performed numerous times both before and after the '75 film, including one version with Buffy star Anthony Head, this really doesn't seem sacrilege any more. Hell, even Glee did a version of it. And that it's for TV, probably keeping the two act format and adding some of the cut/reworked numbers, I think it could be an interesting adaptation.

    To a degree I'm not against another film, as Anaestheus has said it was a play for several years before the movie and regularly performed there after.

    However a TV version is just going to plain suck and will in all likelihood only tarnish its anti-establishment reputation and ultimately become a forgotten footnote in its legacy.
