Now I Know
and knowing is half the battle
I like a recent trend in movies, at least, a trend I'm picking up on. It seems there has been a push to make live-action movies based on children's programs—specifically cartoons—from my own childhood. Some prominent examples are The Flintstones, Scooby-Doo, Transformers, and Alvin and the Chipmunks.
It's going on in the television world, too. It seems to be, at least, in a different form it is—bringing back favorite television series, slightly re-envisioned. For example, recently, a movie that is supposed to be the pilot episode of Knight Rider aired. This experiment was also tried with Battlestar Galactica (a success, though I'm no longer a fan of it) and Bionic Woman (seemingly unsuccessful).
