If you have ever done any acting in your life, or know anyone who has – at any level – you’ve most likely been around as that group of people cast famous shows, plays, movies with other people.

We’ve been looking at classic TV shows and wondering which modern TV stars would we cast in roles on shows such as Gilligan’s Island, I Love Lucy and the Honeymooners.

So, from time to time, we’re going to gather up some fun ideas and share our TwoCents on recasting these classic shows with you. We hope you’ll chime in and share yours back!

Today we looked at the major players from the fan-favorite M*A*S*H* which ran on CBS from 1972 to the grande finale in 1983. Take a look at our new cast and let us know what we go right, what we got wrong and who we missed!

Recasting Colonel Flagg

One of the greatest reoccurring characters in TV lore is Edward Winter's portrayal of the conspiracy obsessed Colonel Flagg. How great would Park and Recreation's Nick Offerman do in this role? Hilarious!

Superheroes were everywhere this past TV season. One of the more popular takes on the superhero was FOX’s Gotham – the story of what Gotham was like, BEFORE Batman was keeping the streets safe.

“Before there was Batman, there was Gotham City. Everyone knows the name of Commissioner Gordon, but what of his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the layers of corruption in Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? Gotham tells the story of the world’s most iconic DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes from the very beginning, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told.”

Recently I found the The Complete First Season of Gotham in my mailbox and popped it right into the Blu-Ray player!

My TwoCents: 9 Wishes For Season 2 Of ‘The Flash’

the flashAs part of our Fall Preview we are sharing what we hope to see on our favorite returning series this fall. In May a number of shows ended their seasons with character deaths, cliffhangers and shocking twists. Before they all come back in September and October, we are chiming in on what we hope to see during the upcoming season. Our writers will cover several shows. Today we are taking a trip to Central City. The Flash will return this fall for Season 2 and as one of last year’s favorite we had to include it in the Fall Preview.

The Flash quickly became one of fall’s best new show last season and it was well deserved. Grant Gustin’s performance, compelling supporting characters and great effects generated a lot of early buzz. The first season was pretty fantastic overall and the hype did not die down. Fans went crazy on social media during the season’s shocking finale. Here’s a list of things I’d like to see in Season 2.

Switched At Birth
How Does a Girl Like You Get to Be a Girl Like You

Original Air Date: Aug 31, 2015

Karen Belgrad – Managing Editor
karenbelgrad@thetwocentscorp.com

Switched At Birth is juggling a lot of storylines right now. Daphne and Mingo. Toby and Lily. Eric’s secret. Bay finding herself post-Emmett/Tank. Kathryn’s musical. John’s financial woes. Melody and UMKC. And, of course, whatever Emmett will be up to the next time we see him.

Something really should go. I vote for the musical, mostly because, well, it’s a little silly. With the exception of how the financial issues will trickle down, it’s really the younger set driving the show. So, with that, let’s dive in and see what everyone is up to.
