Re: The Twilight Zone being rebooted by Bryan Singer and CBS
I'm not against remakes, but this is one where I don't even know why they bother trying.
Every so often, someone wants to bring anthologies back. But anthologies are a tough sell these days, so it makes sense to go with an established, successful name. And the most successful SF/fantasy anthologies, the ones that are best remembered today, were The Twilight Zone
and The Outer Limits
, with the former tending more toward fantasy and the latter more toward SF. So those are the names it's natural to gravitate toward.
Unfortunately, it's also completely natural to take that concept and brutally rape it repeatedly with each remake.
Leave it the hell alone
