Substitutions

Why did it even matter?  This has happened many times before.  There were the original “Bo and Luke, Duke” boys and their replacements; substitutions for “John and Ponch” on “CHiPs.”

The latest in TV main character substitutions may be about to happen. Hawaii 5-0’s actors, Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park are leaving because of failed contract negotiations.

I am saddened to see them leave.  Their characters were strong and appealing.  What would trouble me most, would be for the network to bring in different actors to fill the same roles.

How many different characters have passed in and out of the “Law & Order” franchises over the years?  And, the series goes on.

Was anyone fooled by the two different actors that played daughter Becky Connors on the “Rosanne” show?  Network executives, no substitutions please on Hawaii 5-0.

One thought on “Substitutions”

  1. Reblogged this on itinerantneerdowell and commented:

    The networks are promoting their fall 2018 line ups. Included are reboots of Magnum PI and Murphy Brown. Magnum PI has a completely different, more youthful, cast. Murphy Brown, appeared to have several of the original cast members. Aren’t there any new TV script ideas? I’ll withhold judgement until the new season’s underway.
