While I mostly agree with the sentiment, I do find all of the outrage/handwringing over rebooting BSG a bit... Funny?  Ironic?  Amusing?

 

Let's go with amusing, given all the shit that was rained down on the idea of the first BSG reboot and how fans of the reboot had to put up with so much crap from original BSG fans.

 

"All of this has happened before and it will happen again" indeed.

Wow, I hadn’t seen that chart before. Really puts in perspective how awkward losing Friends and the Office will be for them :hahaha:

 

I imagine it explain that price tag and that move:

Here in Brazil, Friends only became popular because of Netflix. It didn't do well when it aired on broadcast tv.

I heard that No Good Nick did really well on Netflix Brazil, for some reason.

Literally everything but Disney + and maybe HBO Max will fail. Like this is a no brainer.

 

The ones already around will do fine and adapt but every new one from Peacock to Apple TV will flop badly. 

 

Streaming Wars may be going on so get ready for The Rise of the Pirates.

What the actual poop is Quibi?

It’s an upcoming streaming service created by Jeffrey Katzenberg. It’s “gimmick” is that it’s mobile-only, and instead of 22-minute or 44-minute episodes, they are all cut up into bite-sized, 10 minutes or less.

 

I hate every word there too

Criterion Channel is pretty niche, but it serves that select audience well. I think it'll stay around for the indefinite future.

I wish it would come to the UK, we have the BFI Player as an equivalent but it doesn't seem like the library is as large. btw the criterion subreddit memes are lit

Nice. Do they have Touki Bouki? It's bullshit if they don't.

Okay, I know I was kidding around in regards to BSG getting another reboot, but...

 

Fuck.

 

This.

 

SHIT.

 

Fuck it straight to the ninth level of hell.

(regards to last post)

 

Me: Remakes are not inherently bad.  They might bring something new, original, and speak to the current generation that might not think a beloved classic is "all that".  And it's not like the original is going anywhere.

I'm also an outrageously remake friendly person, as far as the general concept goes.

lmao wut

Maybe he was trying to release a trial balloon?  See how it would go over, knowing there was a very strong chance of a backlash.  So maaaaaybe he phrased it that way to 1) protect the people involved in case it blew up in an expected way but also 2) show that this might be serious if the reception wasn't as bad as feared?

 

Then again, this is Sony, so maybe I'm giving too much credit here.

It’s within their collection but they rotate through some titles on a month-by-month basis so I’m not sure if it’s on steaming at the moment.
