Flame On :: Episode 273 :: Everything Old Is A Reboot Again
Flame ON! is the all-gay, all-geek podcast. Tune in as we dish on the latest in pop and queer culture.
They say that everything old is new again, but in the world of pop culture, everything old gets a reboot these days! Whether it’s musicians sampling older songs for new hits or a comic franchise resetting continuity to mine new stories from decades old characters or just a classic movie getting a shiny new high def remake, it’s pretty easy to say that reboots are here to stay.
As the weather changes and the leaves begin to fall, the boys get together to discuss a very important topic, which pop culture reboot worked for them and what media that would love to see get a refresh in the not too distant future. First on the agenda, the boys each set the tone by diving into a piece of pop culture that had a successful reboot or refresh. From movies to video games, they cover the gamut of pop culture. After a quick break for station identification, they dig into the nitty gritty of what this episode is all about! From Marvel fighting games to rebooted “dolls,” the boys have put some thought into the pop culture they would love to see get a second life (and don’t worry there is a special mention of Fan4astic and the hope for Marvel’s first family’s appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe). Did the boys mention a property that you would love to see get a facelift? If not, they’d love to hear what you would revive with a new look if you had the chance, so be sure to let them know on social media!
