Sometimes I wonder if I have the requisite nostalgia in order to enjoy the latest crop of reboots/revivals/reimaginings.
Films, TV shows, books, etc.
As a sought-after demographic, I theoretically should (all things considered). I should have the nostalgia, the memory, the desire to pursue or re-live or indulge, having spent my formative years in the era(s) that produced the works these new ones are based on – or off of, depending on your POV of such things.
Yours and mine.
Then again, is nostalgia requisite (or in this case, a pre-requisite?).
Most times it’s enough to simply get the references. Cred, then, not nostalgia.
There’s also something to be said about quality. Isn’t there?
What’s old that’s new again?
