    Default The new ironside show is a disgrace

    Why is ironside black? Raymond burr wasnt a brother..i dislike when they ruin classic shows like this..why even revamp it? These dudes have clearly run out of ideas

    They seem to want to do this a lot when making remakes of stuff, either changing the ethnicity or gender of the person lol

    then why not just call it something completely different? That way, you're not making the black guy's character subordinate to a tv show from 30-40 years ago, and you're not alienating the people who liked that show and they won't be able to bitch about things being "PC"

    -Controversy arose over the decision to cast Blair Underwood in a role of a paraplegic despite the fact the actor does not have a physical disability requiring a wheelchair. Sons of Anarchy actor Kurt Yaeger, himself an amputee, compared the act to blackface, being quoted as saying "This would be like being in the '50s and having a white guy do blackface, at this point. You need to start having disabled people playing disabled characters. Period.
