The original series was a very serious type of show that dealt in a lot of things like drugs, gangs, date **** and a very memorable episode around AIDS of all things. So when the movie was announced as being a straight up comedy, it rubbed me the wrong way. I was very critical because I wanted the movie to be in line with what I had grown up with. But, different times dictate different things I guess. Anyway, I can't wait to check out the movie for myself.

I am hearing the same kind of thing about Dark Shadows. People want to see it because it is nothing like the show they remember.

I guess looking back, that works sometimes. The reimagining of Batman comes to mind. It work twice, in very different ways. Batman by Tm Burton and the Dark Knight by Chris Nolan.
And you have your stinkers like the Green Hornet. Must be a helluva gamble, eh.
