Spielberg’s ‘E.T.’ Reimagined as a 90s Sitcom

Spielberg

Here at AwardsDaily TV, everything is about the Emmys lately. Still, it’s nice to kick back and take in a few non-Emmy related pieces of entertainment. And, as such, here’s the best thing we’ve seen all day. A few days ago, Mashable released this reimagining of Steven Spielberg’s classic, Oscar-winning E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial as a 90s-era sitcom. The edit/music combo is in perfect sync. Yes, that’s the theme some from Perfect Strangers, which makes it even more amazingly perfect.

My personal favorite moment is the “standing tall on the wings of my dream” juxtaposition against Elliot standing on a stool to kiss a classmate after the great frog debacle.

Hope you enjoy as much as we did.

    Oh my god! That was fantastic. I would totally watch that if that was a real tv show.

        Do you think E.T. would be more than 1 season?

          It would be a Netflix show. Multiple seasons.

            Seems likely yeah. If they were able to write good episodes, I’d watch 10 seasons. I suppose they’d have to update the special effects though.

    Since it was never made clear the time frame of E.T.’s stay on earth it would be possible to make every episode the events that occur on each day. Beginning the show with the aliens’ arrival, his abandonment and search to seek refuge that finds him in the care of Elliot.

      Makes sense. But, the only thing better than a tv show of E.T. would be a stage play. Can you imagine? It would be awesome.
