| You will forgive me Carl, if I find the idea of you not having once seen the series in repeats in the last 25 years since it aired when you supposedly loved it so much as a child to be a dubious one. |
Eric, did you not see the part of my post where I mentioned that I rarely watch TV with the exception of college football, the NFL, or my DVD collection? I never said that I didn't watch a single episode of the series after 1979. However, the last time that I did watch an episode of the show was in the mid 1980's when it came on locally in the evenings after school. Even then, I only saw a few episodes...
| We are not "whiners" we are people who had a genuine appreciation for this show, learning to appreciate it from an adult perspective, and we are the ones who sustained interest in the property for 25 years, and if we're ticked off because an outsider jumped in from left field and trashed the legacy of what we tried to keep awareness in, you can be damned certain we're not going to be calm and placid about that. |
Well, then you just go off and hold your little boycotts, protests, internet petitions, letter writing campaigns, and hunger strikes and perhaps one day things will get better for you.
Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing the series when it debuts next month. If the reviews that I've read are any indication, then it will take an act of God to get this one pulled off the air.
Also, do you not find it a bit ironic that Richard Hatch, of all people, is appearing in the series? He was also interviewed extensively in the documentary on the Miniseries DVD. I mean, of all non-fanboy people, he should be the one most upset about this version of his beloved franchise, shouldn't he? Or, do you think that just maybe he finds this one to be quite good? Hmmmmm...
