Episode 002: Reboots - The Worst (Part One)

July 26, 2019

Reboots and remakes seem to be the order of the day for Hollywood these days - whether we're talking about trying to revive the corpse of an 80's TV show or milk some more money out of a franchise by recasting the whole thing and hoping no one will notice (we're looking at you MIB International...). One thing is for sure, the idea of reboots has been around for quite awhile and it's not going anywhere any time soon.

In this episode, we broke our own rules about podcasts and proceeded to ramble on far too long to make the episode digestible in a single sitting, so for the sake of everyone involved, we've decided to break this sucker in two. This episode will cover the beginning of our discussion on reboots in general and then get into why reboots are the worst. We'll be back next week with the second part which will cover the best.

We tried to be relatively spoiler free, but be warned that there could be some mild spoilers - however, since they're all for movies that you really should have seen by now, we don't feel all that bad.

The video Todd mentioned with Kurt Vonnegut explaining the shape of stories can be found here:

Intro music from this episode is "Love It, Leave It" by Mama's Boomshack from their album Speed Of Soul
