You know what would make bloody good TV?
A Sex and the City prequel that follows a 20-something Samantha Jones as she navigates dating, sex, and career highs and lows in New York City in the 1980s.
Imagine the big hair. And the shenanigans.
And how groundbreaking it would be to follow her journey from awkward, hopeful 20-something to the fierce, funny, no f**ks given Samantha we meet in the original series.
That was the first thought I had after watching the first few episodes of Disney+'s How I Met Your Mother reboot, How I Met Your Father.
Watch the trailer for Disney Plus's How I Met Your Father. Article continues below.
Unfortunately, the reboot is not this show that I've completely made up in my head. Even though it features a lot more Kim Cattrall than I expected.
Instead, How I Met Your Father follows the story of Sophie (Hilary Duff), a 20-something New Yorker who is balancing her career with trying to find the man of her dreams on dating apps.
Kim Cattrall stars as the older, wiser version of Sophie who pops up sporadically throughout the episodes to tell her adult son - seemingly against his will - about how she met his father.
In the first episode, Sophie gets into an Uber on the way to her first date with a man she met on Tinder.
Driving the Uber is Jesse (Veronica Mars' Chris Lowell) and in the passenger side seat is his best mate Sid (Suraj Sharma), a bar owner who is about to propose to his girlfriend.
Long story short, Sophie doesn't spend the rest of her life with her Tinder date. Instead, her and her best friend Valentina (Francia Raisa) become friends with Jesse, Sid, and Jesse's adopted sister Ellen (Tien Tran).
Valentina's instant live-in posh British boyfriend Charlie (Tom Ainsley) also joins this new group of friends. And Sid's bar provides the perfect 'hang out' spot for them.
And of course, Jesse and Sophie soon start to have some ~ feels ~ for each other, setting up the premise that Jesse is the 'father' our old, wise Kim Cattrall is talking about.
As far as sitcoms go, it has all the right elements - main characters whose storylines we can invest in, quirky best friends, a go to 'hang out' place, and a will they/won't they between Sophie and Jesse.
The reboot is also a lot more diverse than its predecessor and centres on a bunch of friends that actually reflect what a friendship group looks like in 2022.
