Re-Make Mash Ups
Another Example: The Office.
Without getting too deep into a show that's really just silly fun, I'd keep Ricky Gervais, but add Rainn Wilson from the American version. It's getting better already!
You can pretty much do this with any remake. Let's face it, with a few exceptions (like Sabrina) there are usually a couple of cool things about remakes, just not enough cool things to keep a remake from sucking. But if we can blend the old with the new, there's usually a pretty enjoyable movie or TV show or song we can enjoy without being pretentious about it ('I ONLY like the original of anything') and everyone wins!
