Unnecessary reboot
24 January 2013 | by (Lund, Sweden) – See all my reviews

It is very popular among reviewers to scoff and mock comebacks, sequels and remakes. The reviewer will often proudly proclaim how much better the original was, and how "they don't make them as they used to". This attitude is, no doubt, often just a form of posturing and an attempt to show sophistication and discernment in taste, without actually forming an independent opinion.

I, on the other hand, have no problem going on record saying that, for example, the Star Wars prequels were surely not bad. Objectively they're not much different to the original trilogy, and if one likes that sort of thing the prequels are just more of the same!

With that said: as a huge fan of the original Yes, Minister/Prime Minister-series, I was very excited to hear that they were launching a new series in 2013. As long as Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn were at the helm, what could possibly go wrong? Well, wrong it went.

What we have here is a very pale "reboot" of the original. Firstly, the production itself feels very cheap. Granted, this shouldn't matter if the performance and writing is good enough. Sadly, the actors (sole exception being David Haig) are not up to snuff, and the story lines are just recycling many of the gags and jokes from the old series.

This, then, is indeed a reboot in the truest sense of the word: they've simply updated the political situations to ones that are more familiar with 2013's audience.

I find this is completely uncalled for. While some of the political crises the original Jim Hacker, Sir Humphrey and Bernard were facing in the 80s are just for the history books today, the actual SATIRE in the original series is timeless! Avoid wasting your time on this, and just get a good DVD-box of the original.
