  1. I would love to see a reboot of Living Single. I enjoyed the show and was one of those who wrote a letter of protest when Fox first started talking about cancelling it and we managed to get a reprieve. I hope it can be pulled off but I’m not going to hold my breath since I haven’t even been able to get DVD’s for all the shows #1 seasons.To my knowledge, only Season 1 is available when I wanted to get all of the seasons. Godspeed!
