If Netflix has proven anything, it's that the world's thirst for reboots, sequels, and reunions will never be quenched. Not until we have dug up every last 1990s sitcom and made it dance for us again will we be satisfied. Girl Meets World and Fuller House have been good, of course, but have they been enough? Of course not. The day we say "enough" will never arrive.
And so we turn our eyes to the future, to the next reboot. Barely have we consumed one before we require another. One a day, one an hour, bring them on.
And what could be better than a Netflix season, consisting of six 30-minute episodes (at the very least), in which Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor and his friends and family come together, with a meta-fictional twist: they are rebooting Tool Time for Netflix.
Imagine the new cast:
- Tim and Al continually confounded by 21st century developments, but find themselves under pressure from the network execs to bring a more contemporary spin to Tool Time.
- Randy founds a start-up that specializes in developing apps meant to automate home improvement, prompting a bittersweet mixture of pride and frustration in his father. His main cause is a ToolTime app, which becomes the central conflict of the new season.
- Mark continues to dedicate himself to the non-profit sector, building Homes for Humanity and other similar causes.
- Brad still lives in Detroit and struggles through a comical series of failed relationships.
- Jill remains Tim's rock, supporting him through all the overwhelming changes.
- Wilson, having passed away (as the real actor died in 2003) is replaced by a cadre younger actors, including Donald Glover, James Franco, Alyson Hannigan, and Selena Gomez.
- Glover plays the network exec concerned with failing ratings.
- Franco is Wilson's deadbeat nephew, crashing next door and cooking up get-rich quick schemes with Brad.
- Selena Gomez is the young, hip co-host brought in to bring Tool Time into the modern era.
- Hannigan is Randy's ex-girlfriend, with whom he may or may not re-ignite the spark during the season.
- Ideally, Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston do cameos—as themselves—as guests on Tool Time.
We will explore the episodes themselves in the future, but some ideas:
- Tim and Al find themselves pitted against The Network over whether to do a special "smart home" episode.
- The guys cannot agree on whether CNC machines are part of their niche or not.
- Randy urges the team to work curve tracing into a Tool Time episode, which thoroughly confounds Tim.
- Tim doesn't understand why technology keeps getting smaller, as it seems in conflict with his "more power" mantra.
Stay tuned, for in the upcoming weeks—every Friday, in fact—we will be unveiling a pitch for an episode every week!
