Which Cast Reunion Would You Most Like To See 'Entertainment Weekly' Tackle Next Year?

By Joanna Robinson | Seriously Random Lists | October 22, 2013 | Comments ()


I don’t know anything about the brain trust behind the annual Cast Reunion editions of Entertainment Weekly, but I do know this, for every issue there’s usually a few winners and a whole lotta losers. I saw someone suggest that EW should get a wee bit funkier with their choices. This was their suggestion:


And I have to say I agree. Was anyone really clamoring for the cast of The Waltons this year? Here are some of the reunions that made the cut in 2013. What would you like to see in 2014?

Mystic Pizza: Okay it’s the Julia Roberts factor, I get that.

Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants: I reject this reunion based on that fact that it hasn’t even been ten years since the first movie came out. And was this movie ever all that iconic? Is this a certain generation’s Goonies?

Wicked: It’s been exactly ten years so, okay. But aren’t Idina and Kristin often seen together? Often performing songs from this show? We can’t get nostalgic for something that hasn’t gone away.

The X-Files: I won’t argue with you, X-Philes, why would I?

Boy Meets World: No Mr. Turner? NO MR. TURNER?!

School Of Rock: I feel zero emotion seeing these kids all grown up. And, man, I like this movie.

Frasier: Looking dapper as f*ck, gents, but where are the ladies?

    Parker Lewis Can't Lose

  • stella

    Friday Night Lights.

  • Reginald

    Mr. Feeny is still alive!?!?

  • I know I deserve a ton of crap for still watching it, but William Daniels had a really great arc on Grey's Anatomy last year.

  • Amy Love

    Gravel crunching under my shoes is my favorite sound. And I credit this to Hey Dude, because the kids used to run up and down the gravel pathways and I just wanted so badly to be there with them. Whenever I hear that sound I go back to my childhood.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Seaquest DSV! ...ohh....

  • Al Borland's Beard

    Dinosaurs. Not the voice actors, but the puppets.

  • The Replicant Brooke

    Pardon me while I stare at Gillian Anderson for a while.

  • Confucius Jackson

    I'd want Brisco County Jr, but not since Lord Bowler has passed away. Bruce Campbell and Kelly Rutherford....

    Night Court
    Living Single was mentioned earlier, that could be fun.
    I realized that I miss Kate Jackson.

  • e jerry powell

    "The Waltons." Without Will Geer.

    I don't think so.

  • rocboltin rocbolt

    They did Hart to Hart this year too, and that was all sorts of wonderful just to see Amy Poehler and Adam Scott do the interview


    There's two slightly longer clips at the bottom of the page here as well

  • Matt Willis

    Too bad Corey Matthews' dad became Derek Vineyard's dad.

  • llp

    Ummmm, I like The Waltons. It reminds me of being small and I watch it when I am home sick for lunch. I NEED THAT REUNION PHOTO.

    No, I don't, really. Maybe. Hmmmm.

  • Rebecca Hachmyer

    Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

    (Okay, I just googled Gene Wilder and learned that Google has essentially added a "Cast Reunion" feature. Turns out Charlie Bucket is a large animal veterinarian in Texas. Who knew??)

  • BlackRabbit

    Ok, I can't resist: How large is he?

  • Rebecca Hachmyer

    So large he makes blueberry-Violet Beauregarde look like..... um.....quick! what's something small and funny?

  • bastich

    /unzips pants

  • Rebecca Hachmyer

    Even Stevens

  • Anyone else creeped out by Alexis Bliedel's eyes in the Entertainment Weekly pic? I think she might've just stolen my soul.

  • grr arrgh

    I'm more alarmed by Amber Tamblyn's arms in the second picture. Either her arms are crossed in a bizarre way or they accidentally photoshopped a third arm on her.

  • Salute Your Shorts, Stand By Me (for the cries), My Girl, Sabrina the Teenage Witch for the TGIF set, the Midnight Society from Are You Afraid of the Dark.

    ETA: Maybe both sets of women from Now & Then.

  • grr arrgh

    Well, we are due for a Buffy reunion unless they already did one.

  • AvaLehra

    Moonlighting, Facts of Life, Degrassi Jr. High.

  • kushiro -

    Original recipe ER and Chicago Hope. Take the photos while they fight it out.

  • blacksred

    how about some diversity like: Living Single or Family Matters or Martin

  • Sara_Tonin00

    A Different World would be fun to see.

  • Bobbs3k

    Considering the real life issues between Martin Lawrence and Tisha Campbell I don't think we'll be seeing a reunion shot of Martin, at least not with the full cast.

  • elirt

    Ensemble casts are so much more interesting. Family Ties, Full House, Cosby Show, and Dazed and Confused,

  • Rebecca Hachmyer

    upvote for dazed and confused. alright alright.

  • Robert

    Regarding Wicked, Kristen and Idina don't really appear that often together. There's alleged bad blood regarding the producers demanding Chenoweth's character be substantially expanded to be co-lead with Menzel's character since Chenoweth was more well-known at the time. They also never got to do their final scheduled performance together because Menzel suffered a significant injury when her leg got caught in a trap door onstage right near the end of her run. Both perform the songs in their concerts, but only Chenoweth regularly performs the duets (and with a random audience member, at that).

    Also regarding Wicked, I hate that show more than anything running on Broadway right now (save Rock of Ages, a show so bad one of the production offices didn't even bother to watch the Tony announcements; I informed one of my coworkers, wife of an exectuive producer, that their show was nominated for 5 Tonys some 10 hours after the nominations came out; the response was laughter on speakerphone). The script is terrible inspiring nonsense that ruins the whole point of the novel. It comes so damn close at times to being the nightmarish reinterpretation of The Wizard of Oz Gregory Maguire set out to create. My Godtopus, that 10 minute Nessarose sequence in Act II is what the entire show should have been--dark, emotional, and filled with good music. Ahem.

  • Cowtools

    Just curious: What's so terrible about Rock Of Ages? I mean, why single it out in particular?
    I'm a big fan of classic MGM-style movie musicals, but I don't have the opportunity to see a stage production very often. Me and a fellow teacher took a class to see Rock Of Ages and we all had a great time.
    I guess it was easy for me to appreciate as I'm an unabashed, unironic fan of that era of music.
    I'll admit that I do find 'jukebox' musicals to be largely cheap and unimaginative. But why I've noticed Rock Of Ages seems particularly poorly regarded. Care to enlighten me?

  • apsutter

    There have been rumors about cat fights between these two for years but I don't think they changed Galinda's role just for her. She was there in the early years when they were putting it together and had her in mind for the show before they cast Idina. And Idina was hurt during the end of her run but Kristin had left the show quite a while before that.

  • Lillimae

    I know I have an old man thing anyway, but someone else must agree...that dad from Boy Meets World got hawwwwtttt

  • bastich

    "You Can't Do That On Television"

  • Gabs


  • John W

    Cast reunions I'd like to see in the future in no particular order:

    Northern Exposure
    Newsradio (I know there would be one big omission)
    The Middlemen
    Not Necessarily The News
    WKRP in Cincinnati

  • Ben

    I don't think I could handle seeing Newsradio reunion without Phill Hartman. There would be tears.

  • Wigamer

    WKRP!! I want the world to see that Bailey was always the hot one.

  • John W

    Yeah that's why I used to tune in for too.

  • Wigamer

    I was a Venus Flytrap fan, myself. Those scarves...

  • Joseph Finn

    Unlike Goonies, everyone involved in Sisterhood has gone on to good work in one thing or another. Also unlike Goonies, Sisterhood is actually a good movie.

  • dizzylucy

    You work for the Astoria Country Club, don't you?

  • Dude. I like Sisterhood just fine, but in no way is it superior to Goonies.

  • Joseph Finn

    Next thing you know, people will be defending Hook.

  • linnyloo


  • cgthegeek

    Living Single, A Different World, Amen, Roc, and Family Matters.

  • The Replicant Brooke

    I'm glad I'm not the only person who remembers Amen.

  • muchsarcasm

    Law & Order (original series) - All seasons, from Michael Moriarity to Jeremy Sisto.

  • Siege

    They'd have to do one of those fold-out posters for that...and then I would buy it and hang it on my wall.

  • kirivinokur

    A Different World

  • PerpetualIntern

    Salute Your Shorts!

  • BWeaves

    Maybe it's the makeup or the lighting, but the Wicked ladies look harsh, and I know they really don't.

  • apsutter

    Well Kristin does look a little bit rough right now. She has always looked older than her age and her face just and tiny little body just show wear and tear easily I think. Idina still looks pretty great though.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    They both look like they could kill you with their jaws.

  • TK

    I swear to God, Annabeth Gish looks better now than she ever has. That woman is amazing.

  • She has always been sneaky extraordinary.

  • Wigamer

    Gillian Anderson, too. They're aging in reverse.

  • lowercase_ryan

    see her on The Bridge?

  • Parsnip

    Hill Street Blues

  • mairimba

    In 2014 they HAVE to do the FRIENDS reunion.

  • PerpetualIntern

    The fact that it's been almost 10 years since the end of Friends makes me feel oooooooooold.

  • bastich

    Could you BE any older?

  • seth

    Herman's Head.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Empire Records and (3/4 of) The A-Team.

  • Parsnip

    which 3/4 makes the cut?

  • Bert_McGurt

    The ones that are still alive.

  • bastich

    That's no excuse!

    /grabs shovel

  • Megan

    Saved by the Bell, Full House, Fresh Prince, and maybe The Cosby Show.

  • PerpetualIntern

    Upvote for the Cosby Show

  • Repo

    That X-Files shot makes me happy. I'd be down for another series.

  • Bodhi

    Pete & Pete!

  • Blake

    Homicide: Life on the Street - cast from all of the seasons (no Movie - FVCK Priestly).

    Or Real Genius, Top Secret, Deadwood or B.S.G (Syfy).

    Why are "Guest" comments turned off?

  • Guest

    Also: Wonderfalls, Dead Like Me, Pushing Daisies, Better Off Ted and A.R.C.T.U.

  • Allijo

    It's a moral imperative.

  • I want to see Blossom, Pete & Pete, and Harriet the Spy.

  • Pete & Pete for real!

  • So when they do the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" reunion, which Aunt Vivian will they go with? I'm hoping it's Aunt Viv #1.

  • lowercase_ryan

    THIS CANNOT HAPPEN!! Because Will will squeeze Jayden into the reunion somewhere, as Ashley's kid or some shit, and that kid does NOT get to touch the Fresh Prince! Hands Off you spoiled little shit!

  • JuBN

    but..but Aunt Viv # 1 doesn't care for Jayden and Willow's dad. I forget his name.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    But Aunt Viv 1 was crazy freaking hot.

  • VonnegutSlut

    By these standards, we're due for a Dexter reunion portrait next year.

  • ZizoAH

    They should, since the show died like, 5-6 years ago.

  • Wōđanaz Óðinn
  • Allijo

    I only want the Hey Dude reunion if when I open up my Entertainment Weekly it starts singing to me "It's a little wild and a little strange.."

  • Joe Grunenwald

    Ted and Brad were my first 'ship.

  • buell

  • Mrs. Julien

    HELL YES! "Would you marry me instead of him?"

    I loved that show so very much.
