Default 1976/2017 What would be different for Top Hat and Tails

O.K., well start off with the next eppy of the bunch. "Top Hat and Tails" eppy is up for our cultural exchange discussion this week.

"Top Hat and Tails" was originally done back in 1976. If a time machine would allow us to to scoop up the whole cast and crew and bring them here to 2017, what are some of the script and or prop changes that would have to be made to fit out fearless cast into modern times without taking away from the original storyline ??

You've all seen the eppy so now let's discuss !!!

The robots would be more realistic and the remote that controls them would be a lot smaller.

Instead of a competition between stores, it would be a "Dancing with the Department Store Stars" thing.

Of course, then we loose Captain Peacock upstaging Rumbold on the piano. He could select better music on the player but it doesn't have the same effect. Maybe Peacock could be the one to suggest iTunes or whatever and thus he makes Rumbold look old fashioned for playing the piano.

The staff wouldn't need dancing lessons. They would have learnt years ago when a fad was started by the "Dancing with the Stars" etc shows.

Or at least they would want to do more Dancing with the Stars type moves rather than traditional ballroom dancing (I've never seen an episode of DWTS, so I assume it's a mix of different dance styles).

The Dancers have to master many different Dances. The judges were a hoot when I watched it.
