The Best Debate in the Universe - Is nostalgia ruining television, or is it sour grapes from people who want to see something new? The awesome writer Alan Denton joins us to debate: IS NOSTALGIA RUINING TV?
Tuesday January 9th 2018
Sonic Boom writer and story-editor, Alan Denton joins us this week to debate: is nostalgia ruining television? With Fuller House, X-Files, Coach and a number of other old sitcoms slated to return, it leads us to the debate this week. Do you like this shit or is it time for something new? What will people reboot in the future if we skip an entire generation of content to pump out reboots? And the other side of the coin is that it's become increasingly difficult to capture your share of an audience, so is nostalgia justified? Damn that's a good summary. Watch the video version here at Madcast Media Network YouTube channel:
