Reboots are all the rage these days, whether it be in TV or movies. Heck, even The Karate Kid got rebooted on YouTube as Cobra Kai. The key to a successful reboot is shifting a few key variables that updates the original premise to contemporary settings, but doesn’t corrupt its nostalgic allure.
In that spirit, Jimmy Kimmel decided a certain TV series needed a green-thumb tweak of sorts. “Frasier Crane isn’t the only TV doctor from the ’90s who deserves new life,” Kimmel says. Enter a faux-promo for “Dr. Quinn, Medicinal Marijuana Woman,” a spoof on the Jane Seymour vehicle popular in the ’90s for its progressive themes and historical setting.
“New trails are about to get blazed,” Seymour narrates in the spoof.
We watch Seymour reprising her Dr. Quinn role as a traveling weed dispensary, reminiscent of The Guy from HBO’s “High Maintenance.” Dr. Quinn rides into tow to treat a man experiencing “so much cholera.” To combat his ails, we see her “Best in the West” medicinal marijuana. Names include Cornbread Kush, Calamity Mary Jane, Wyatt Earple Haze, Pineapple Pony Express, Doc’s Holiday, and more.

Asked on Buzzfeed News’ “Profile” about an actual reboot, Seymour responded enthusiastically: “We wish!…They have brought back absolutely everything, I have no idea why they wouldn’t bring this back…people all over the world, all cultures, love ‘Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman’…It’s so relevant to today, it could not be more relevant.”
