...well, it has a title and a teaser image anyway.
For those not already familiar with ReBoot, I think it'd be impossible for me to explain why I love that show so much and why I find this news so exciting. It was the first CG animated TV show - made in the early nineties...and it didn't age well.
To be honest, the low quality animation isn't that big of a problem to me. The genius of the show is that it's set inside a 90's computer...which makes the 90's CG entirely appropriate to the setting. It's so deliciously meta! It's actually the writing that I think has a few more problems, particularly in season one, with a lot of hokey and childish humor that only occasionally made me laugh due more to the way Bob's voice actor says the lines than the actual lines themselves. And there's several things about the setup that just don't make sense. (Why would winning a video game harm your computer? How did the characters in Mainframe deal with adventure games? Why are the 'net and the web referred to as if they're two different things?)
There's a lot about the show that's really great, though. The setting alone makes the stories inherently interesting, I mean it's a city inside your desktop computer. A system crash means the end of the world! The writing got consistently better all the way through season 3 (season 4 is...something...). The characters evolved and changed as the story went on (character development was virtually unheard of in cartoons of the time because showrunners wanted viewers to be able to jump in on any episode). Hexadecimal remains one of the greatest antagonists in cartoon history and I will fight anyone who says otherwise. And the season three episode "Number 7" remains one of my favorite episodes of ANY series. Ever. And it's just an extended parody of "The Prisoner". (I would not recommend anyone jump to watch that one, though, as due to the aforementioned character development I'm not sure how much sense it'd make out of context.)
I love the show so much I actually have it on DVD and make it a point to rewatch it fairly regularly. The idea that we could have a new version of ReBoot with updated CG, better and more consistent writing (hopefully), and a better understanding of how computers function is just the best news to me. Like, find a way to make games dangerous WITHOUT them destroying entire parts of the city...because really, that never made any damn sense.
I'm still not convinced it's happening. I'm convinced that the makers WANT it to happen, but I don't know if it will.
...but if it does, I'll be first in line to watch it, and I'll be quick to let everyone know if you should watch it too. In the meantime the old show still exists, so if you have a high tolerance for corny dialogue and low quality CGI, it's all on youtube. Enter at your own risk, haha!
