Were you even alive in the '90s if you didn't tune in to witness the weekly overwrought adventures of the Salinger family in Party Of Five?
Set in San Francisco, it was about a bunch of siblings making their way in the world after their parents die in a car crash. It had Matthew Fox and Jeremy London competing with each other for floppiest '90s haircut. It had Neve Campbell pouting and Jennifer Love Hewitt smizing. It had Scott Wolf's dimples and inflexible shoulders. There was also a helium-voiced child and a baby too.
Storylines covered subjects like alcoholism, domestic violence, cancer and sex. It also had a theme tune that was simultaneously very similar to but somehow 100 times better than the one from Friends.
The idea that anyone would attempt to reboot Party Of Five with a different cast is the type of thing almost guaranteed to get 30 and 40-somethings grabbing the nearest pitchforks and marauding in protest. (You know, like when Netflix threatens to take Friends out of rotation, or when someone says they don't think My So-Called Life needed a second season.) You might want to take a few deep breaths though because that's the reality we're currently facing.
