Ok, taking a swing here....

"CHARMED."   I used to watch it on SyFy when it was a new show.  The original show is in syndication here on SyFy.  I'm thinking the new show is being handled by the same network as the original was when it was a new show- which would make the new "Charmed"  a SyFy show.

Well, there doesn't seem to be a lot of interest in this "quiz."

All of the shows mentioned except "Fantasy Island" are currently running on CW.  (I forgot to add "Roswell," also on that channel.)  There was a Fantasy Island reboot with Malcolm MacDowell on ABC in the late 1990s, but the current manifestation is on the FOX network.  It stars Roselyn Sanchez as Elena Roarke, apparently the niece of the Ricardo Montalban  character.  She has her own "Tattoo," but this one is simply a woman with a tattoo and who is always referred to by her name ("Ruby").  The show lacks some of the charm of the original, but is definitely watchable.

I have not seen the reboots of Dynasty, Charmed, 4400, or Roswell.  The "Walker" show stars Jared Padalecki (of "Supernatural" fame).  He's a Texas Ranger, but the episodes seem more about family drama than catching bad guys.  And there is none of the Chuck Norris martial artistry.  In fact, there are almost no fistfights.  The current "Kung Fu" involves someone coming to America after studying at a Shaolin temple, but that's pretty much the only connection to the original.  It stars Olivia Liang as Nicky Shen, who left her home in San Francisco to "find herself" at the temple and who returns to fight a supernatural foe to recover certain artifacts.  In this version, pretty much all of the actors are Asian.  

I find "Fantasy Island," "Kung Fu," and "Walker" interesting enough to keep watching.  If any of you have seen the shows (or any of the other "reboots"), I'd be interested in your takes.  In the meantime,

The main cast of this show (excluding the star) included

Arsenio Hall

Kelly Hu

Tammy Lauren

Louis Mandylor

Tom Wright

Gretchen Egolf

(The first two would have given it away for me, but then I watched this (relatively) short-lived series regularly.)

The star of the show wasn't particularly proficient in English, so he had fewer lines than most of the co-stars.

The show had a cross-over with Walker, Texas Ranger.

Jackie Chan is a friend of the star and has an uncredited cameo in one of the episodes.
