Here are mine. Columbo 2nd phase ('89 - '03) - They were nowhere near the classics the 1st phase was. The writers were different (who had more of a modern style), most of the villains were badly miscast (when interactions b/w Columbo and them should have sizzled, they fizzled), and most of them were just very predictable despite a promising setup. The 1st phase ones, OTOH, were always enjoyable with each viewing. What's Happening Now - when the cast from the previous show grew up and became adults. The jokes weren't as funny b/c they felt a bit forced. Largely b/c the behaviors that worked when the cast were teenagers, obviously didn't come off as funny when they tried the same personalities as adults (ie, Dwayne's "Uh Huh! Nuh Uh!" insecure personality obviously didn't work as well when he grew up). Perry Mason (80's version) - enjoyable the first go around. But the more I watched them, it's as if you knew what smokescreens and red herrings they were trying to put out, and the climax/ending almost never amounted to much. Instead of that KO punch at the end, you're left with that "Uh Huh" feeling.
