I know they're getting sick of being asked about it... However, this is the greatest eyeroll I've ever seen:

Yes, great eyeroll :)
But she doesn't sound very optimistic to me.

What are your thoughts on this reunion? Part of me likes the idea and wants to see one last Bundy adventure. The show was not given a proper ending and that has always sat poorly with many fans. I think that these great characters deserve a chance to say goodbye. I'm a huge fan of the series and I love the cast even more. I don't doubt that they have the talent to make viewers laugh as well as they ever have before. I just don't know if creating an entire series is the right venue for this.

Since the series will center around Bud I'm sure it will introduce a new cast of characters with the occasional guest spot for former MWC alum. Certain characters like Al and Peg have a timelessness about them. Their humor was often at it's best between the two of them. They could sit in two chairs reading scripts and people would love it. Kelly and Bud are a little different. It was funny watching Bud's struggles from adolescence to adulthood. A manipulative, horny teenager is funny but a manipulative, horny older man is kind of creepy. Likewise, Kelly was packaged as a beautiful ditzy blond young girl. It worked best in the middle of the series best but her character, like Bud's, became almost cartoonish in the final episodes. Even though I think Christina is still very beautiful and funny I find it hard to imagine that same character in her forties.

I watched the episode of David's show "Star-ving" where they reunited and I really enjoyed it. The concept made sense because the focus was on the actors themselves, not the characters they once played. I'd love to see this cast together once again because their chemistry is incredible and their ability to make people laugh is undeniable. I just think that the reason this project has not seen the light of day is not because someone doesn't like the idea but instead because someone who loves the characters just wants to make sure it's done right.
