Today we will discuss Fandom. What it means to be in one and what it means to have control over a creative endeavor. The question of: How do we, as a fandom, be a little nicer to creatives but also say what we want to say? If a show is bad, they need to know. So let’s talk about that.

What do you think we should do in order to be respectful to the writers, creators, and the like?

What Can We Make Of Fandom Reboots & Revamps?

In light of the most recent revamps, reboots, and fandom downhill’s, we will be talking about the million-dollar question: “What happens when a fandom doesn’t like your reboot or revamp material?” This has been a long-standing conversation in the fandom community when fandom lovers bully creators to add their ship into the show (even if they don’t want to).

We won’t be talking about this parse in-depth, but we will be talking about when fans pay for your series and don’t get the ship they deserve. Both of those topics intertwine; however, we will also be talking about just reboots and revamps in general and what they do for the long-term audience. Should writers give a damn about what the fans think? Or should they do what they want?

Now you can’t talk about reboots or revamps without mentioning Twin Peaks, Veronica Mars, The Goldbergs, which is essentially a revamp of The Wonder Years, the Rosanne show, now called “The Conners.” There’s so many reboots and revamps, we now have a new All That series on Nick, the 90s are especially making a comeback. Daria is making a comeback as well. And not just with TV series. The film realm is becoming a reboot and revamp hell just as much.

The live-action Aladdin and Lion King. We have rebooted IT. Apparently SAW is going to get a remake/reboot. The list goes on. By now, fans are already numb to the idea of reboots and revamps. We have long-since cared about any of them because most of the time they aren’t for us. They are made for new audiences.
