I just watched the pilot for the TV show remake. It's not bad. It's actually very similar to the movie. There's even a bunch of lines that are the same, as well as the character names. Nia Long stars as the mother. The new DNA to the Uncle Buck franchise is the update to sexting and Instagram as opposed to straight up rape threats and big shotguns.

'Buck' still has the oversized car that blows out, among other details. My favorite new edition small detail that just hangs there silently (literally) is the full-size pair of sneakers acting as the air freshener in his car, lol.

Anyway, now that they've condensed the full movie to 22 min, the real test is where they go from here. It's definitely decent in the land of sitcoms, though. Easy for me to keep watching.
