If you’ve picked up the Reunions issue of Entertainment Weekly, you know that in honor of the magazine’s 20th anniversary, we’ve reunited cast members from TV classics including The West Wing, Will & Grace, Alias, Gilmore Girls, Married… With Children, Northern Exposure, Roots, and The Muppet Show. (See the links below.) If you could reunite a cast for a sitdown chat — whether it be two people or a group comparable to President Bartlet’s — who would you choose, and what would you ask?
Tops on my list: Sports Night. I’d like to know where those characters are today (and who they’re married to), and if Josh Charles (CBS’ The Good Wife) and Peter Krause (NBC’s Parenthood) ever made a bet on the Tuesday at 10 p.m. timeslot. Also, even though The Early Show reunited the FYI team in 2009, Murphy Brown. Candice Bergen said then that the network had really wanted Heather Locklear to play Murphy, so you know there are great battles to discuss. Maybe the press would finally get season 2 and beyond released on DVD. There’s nothing worse than rediscovering your love for an old show when the first season hits… and then not being able to see someone hook up with Scott Bakula.
