This has the potential to blow up in Smith’s face if the revival is bad, though the revival maintains nominal continuity through guest appearances from original characters Leon Robinovitch (Eric Peterson) and Dillon Beck (Anthony Sherwood). Street Legal can’t rely too much on nostalgia if it wants to be for Canadian legal drama what Degrassi is for teen drama. At least the showrunner’s solid and CBC doesn’t normally play the nostalgia card, so the revival should be interesting. Street Legal premieres March 4, 2019 at 9:00 PM ET/PT (9:30 PM NT).
The 1974-75 series Ultraman Leo streams on TOKU’s SVOD service starting November 9, 2018, after premiering last year on the linear channel. Tsuburaya Productions content (see: Ultraman, Mirrorman, Gridman) is a large part of TOKU’s current branding strategy, as much of the Ultra Series was previously on Crunchyroll. Hopefully TOKU explores more of the Tsuburaya content in 2019 and beyond. Mighty Jack and Star Wolf are two titles to look into for the future…just not with a forklift.
