People just want to spend time trapped in The Golden Oldies Zone and won't ever leave. And they expect the home video divisions of the major studios to put every old TV show of the '50s and '60s on DVD in fully remastered sets, regardless of if they will even sell enough units to justify making more.. That, and resistance to the 2009 Star Trek movie and the current one make me wonder if people even know what decade or century this is.
It works both ways. On the one hand, you have the curmudgeons who insist that everything was better in the good old days, damnit, and anything new and modern is crap, especially if all those stupid young people like it.
But, on the other hand, you have the callow kids who insist that anything filmed before they came of age is hopelessly "cheesy" and lame. And black-and-white . . . forget about it!
Some days I'm convinced that half the battles on the internet are generational in origin . . . and it can be honestly hard to tell which side is most annoying.
