Revival of another Dead Franchise?

I bet they go through a similar loop as to a lot of similar ones recently, it works to re-build up the hype for them pretty well.

Have a trailer / release it as with a lot of controversial "wokeness" to stir the pot and make people get all uppity about it.

Then release a version that's more in-line with what is considered to be the "classic" series, and everyone's fairly happy / invested in the franchise again.

Web / Game Dev, occasionally finishes off coding games also!

That's not what happened with the recent Kevin Smith He-Man series, by all accounts. His was advertised like the old series and turned into something completely different by all accounts (sorry, I've not actually seen it, but read lots of bad things about it!).

"The search for Sam" premise has been pretty much the standard since as long as the idea of a new series has been around.
I'm not expecting that to be the case.. For starters you can't have every episode be...
Act 1 : Is Sam here? No
Act 2 : OMG I have to fix something here, too, or I can't leap out?
Act 3 : I have done, now, and I will leap to a new place where I will begin my search for Sam once more.

Seems a bit.. Um.. what's the word..? Crap..?

The original premise was "We don't know why you're leaping.. But hopefully the next leap will be the leap home."
Journeyman similarly took a "I don't know why I'm 'journeying', but I can solve problems in the past, so I guess that's what I have to do." premise.

If the "team" are indeed "searching for Sam", and doing the leaping on purpose, then it'd be far too planned out. There wouldn't be a leap into a monkey, for starters.
I would hope that anything they do choose to do, will allow for unforeseen circumstances to arise, otherwise.. yeah, a bit crap.

Ben's first leap will be on NBC on Sept 19th.
No information as to how we'll see it over here, but NBC has a "Peacock" streaming service, which is currently only available as part of a Sky package, so...

|update| .. and they're remaking it again!! |update|

The original pilot was filmed on location, and is (/was!) a big earthquake centric episode.
They've been asked to change a couple of bits to help new-viewers enjoy it, so have had to rewrite a couple of chunks, but .. are no longer on location and can't afford to go back out and refilm the bits that would be necessary to do that.

.. So, um.. They're having to refilm the entire episode, and have had to rewrite the majority of the leap!!!


Apparently still aiming for Sept 19th, though.
