I have no real problem with the nu-Trek. I enjoyed the first, haven't seen the second, but I'm sure I'll enjoy it. No, my REAL problem is now people are wanting EVERYTHING rebooted. I saw just the other day something on 'fans demand X-Files reboot!'
Good God people! Duchovney and Anderson still look great! They're not Grandpa and Grandma Moses. Besides,....Abrams is a fairly smart guy.
The odds of an X-Files reboot looking like the last POS Night Stalker show are much greater than being remotely as good as the Trek reboot. Besides,....is Duchovney going to go back in time and confront himself (As played by Jesse Eisenberg) at the FBI Academy? Gag.
I'm in the midst of an X-Files
rewatch (I'm just starting Season 7) and up to this point the series is awesome. The characters of Mulder and Scully are fantastic and the chemistry between is cool. That chemistry is part of why the series was so good and it would be very hard to recreate with new casting.
I love their monster-of-the-week type stories and in many ways they do stuff I'd love to see in a space adventure series.
