Why resurrect Star Trek, Superman, Sherlock Holmes or anything? Because there's some intangible awesomeness in seeing something you loved being given new life. Each to their own, but I loved Abrams' Trek reboot and thought he captured the sprit of fun and adventure from TOS and the classic movies. I actually vastly prefer the modern versions Sherlock Holmes' to the classics. As a kid I loved the old Superman movies starring Christopher Reeve, and I recently very much enjoyed watching through Smallville from beginning to end. Recognizable characters in new situations. Love it.
