In this generation, most of the classic films and television shows are remade to pay tribute to those shows. Shows like Battlestar Galactica, Bionic woman, Outer Limits, Twilight Zone, and other television shows have the same theme from the remade shows but some would add difference from the original programs.
Some television shows Ugly Betty are remade from the Colombian soap, Yo soy Betty, La Fea or I am Betty, the ugly one. Zaido, an Asian television show, was supposed to be a remake of Space Sheriff Shaider. But Toei rejected their script because of copyright issues, which triggered them to create a spin-off which Toei approved.
Television series which were remade in the movies like Charlie' Angels, Dukes of Hazzards, Miami vice, and Bewitched. Mission Impossible is a sequel of the television series with the same name, because the protagonist of the story is Ethan Hunt.
But the question is, are remade television films better than the original?
