** Desilu decide against calling the ''Series/MissionImpossible'' remake ''Mission: Impossible: The Next Generation'', partly because nobody would take [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration show a with that subtitle]] seriously. Despite the lack of a subtitle, fans call the new series TNG, and the original series TOS.
