The classic 1960s sitcom is archaic by today's standards, but the reboot is using its dated premise and rebooting it to make it relevant in a modern context. As Brett White explains, the reboot is "actually worth getting excited about, really excited about, especially if you grew up enjoying the original series. I’d even say that this new take from Black-ish creator and mega-producer Kenya Barris and Black-ish writer/co-producer Yamara Taylor proves how necessary revisiting these old ideas can be. Yeah, all we know about the reboot is the quick series pitch included in the initial reports, but that brief summary proves that Barris and Taylor are actually taking an old idea, confronting the problem at the core of it’s mid-century premise, and spinning it for the 21st century. That is what all reboots should do, and very few actually do!"
