It's called Adaptation Overindulgence Disorder, and its symptoms can strike anyone, from Transformers to Turtles and now, even unitards.  If this disease isn't stopped, we could soon see Veritech fighters with thousands of external moving parts, or a hyper-realistic Mickey Mouse.  We can't let that happen.  Without a cure in sight, our only hope is to prevent this disease from spreading:  by better matching creatives to content, by understanding that because something is popular enough to demand a remake means that not everything in the original is fundamentally broken, and through abstinence.  To say "no." "No, I will not add meaningless extra items to robots or suits."  "NO, I don't think a spaceship should be entirely jagged pointy shapes."  We're doing what we can, but it's a long, upward battle.  And you can help, simply by visiting "complicated does not equal better dot charity."

(Footage from the Transformers movies plays alongside that Sarah MacLaughlin song).
