You start off with "the original series ran in the 60's or the early 70's." The original series ran from 1960 to 1964. Why you would take the time to post a comment on a show that you apparently really know nothing about the heritage, I guess, is part of the new age of people with too much to say about things they have no knowledge of. Yes, for those who loved the original series, the remake was weak and badly cast. But it seems like you never saw the original and are just simply evaluating the newer version with some blind eye to what it was based upon. But then again, I see your comment was posted 8 years ago and is the leading comment for this forgettable remake. I stumbled upon this by mistake, and just had to put my two cents in. I am currently re-watching season two on DVD of the original route 66 series and just enthralled with how good it was. They do not make shows like this anymore. The writing, the acting, the show in total is one of the greatest under rated American shows of all time. It is a shame that someone like yourself, posted a comment on the weak remake of it, and clearly has not point of reference to what they are talking about. Make fun of the remake if you want, but at the least, please go back and do your home work on what this failure was trying to replicate. The original was a masterpiece.
