Title: Legends of the Hidden Temple Reboot
Post by: Legends Explorer Alec on January 29, 2019, 02:23:12 PM
Since we've already got a movie and a board game, I was wondering what the odds are on Legends getting an actual reboot. Of course, it'll be played the same way as the original, but I thought it could also include elements from the movie (ex: Ioan Sebastian Tirlui reprising his role as Zuma and hosting with Kirk Fogg). Maybe also in the reboot, the set will look more Mayan.

So, should Legends actually be rebooted? There's a poll above and a link to my petition in my signature (if you vote yes).

I’m gonna have to say neutral on this because of the high expectations it would have. While a few of nick’s game shows did get rebooted, here were the results.


Double Dare 2000: Very bad. At least kept the obstacle course and most of the format the same. No Marc Summers ruins it. 


My Family Got Guts: The worst remake of all. Used an abondoned studio. Had a two team format except for two episodes. The Crag was different. Tried to combine Guts with Double Dare.  Not memorable at all. Mike and Moira were never on.


Figure It Out: Actually they did this remake pretty well. While it was not as good as the 90’s version, it was still enjoyable and stayed true to most of its origins. Plus slime insanity, and a bonus for contestants getting slimed if a key word from the It Board (which replaced Billy the head). Jeff Sutphen did alright as host, but the panelists did drag the show down. Come to think of it, I don’t think a single panelist was a panlist in the 90s.


Double Dare: Too early to tell, but at least they got Marc Summers involved.


After that I might lean toward no, but I wouldn’t mind seeing it come back if they stay true to most of the shows roots and don’t stray away from it.

Well guess what: My petition just got 100 supporters.

I hate to say it, but I don't think that petition is going to do anything. It only has 100+ signatures. No way is that going to get Legends rebooted.

As for the topic/poll question, I'm on the fence about this. On one hand, I would love to see new episodes of Legends. I want to see what it would look like. On the other hand, I'm scared to death that the people who would be in charge would butcher it badly. I don't want to see one of my favorite shows from my childhood get ruined. This is tough. I'm probably leaning towards no here.

Well I was thinking it could play out just like the original, but with some elements from the movie (such as Zuma returning to host with Kirk Fogg). Also, the new set should look more Mayan-themed and the insides of the temple would make future contestants feel they're running through an actual Mayan temple. Remember the movie? The inside of the temple looked more like what we'd see inside an actual Mayan temple.

Hopefully that won't ruin Legends for you. I personally expect the reboot (if it ever happens) to appeal to both today's kids and the many adults who watched it during their childhood in the 90s or 2000s, but I'll give you time to make up your mind.

Hey, everyone. I’ve been sending the petition link to friends and family and not everyone has signed.

Maybe you guys can help!
