Heating up and defrosting certain foods do not diminish the value of the food. Neither does television reboots
We have had two successful TV reboots and both of these are Black History Month appropriate: Bel-Air and The Wonder Years.
I was highly critical and skeptical of both of these as I grew up with both shows and still watch reruns of the originals.
Both shows have delivered and I look forward to each new episode. They are using the formula of showcasing Black excellence and not ruining the originals. Regarding Bel-Air, there are notable differences, specifically with Carlton. It’s still a solid, provoking show.
Therefore it’s showing us that reboots can work and do not have to be corny or cliché. I still haven’t changed my mind on Back to the Future or Forrest Gump but I am certainly more open.
Some old soup is actually good when reheated.
