A Rumour of Reboot
At first it was merely a terrible rumor swirling around deep in the fever-swamps of geekdom, but now, tragically, we know it to be true: Space: 1999 is being rebooted.
Admittedly the original title no longer works, so this time around this peculiar 1970s semi-spinoff from the equally peculiar series UFO will be retitled Space: 2099. No word yet as to whether they'll be bringing back those wonderful unisex uniforms that made the women look so butch and the men so gay, or those peculiar laser guns that for a brief time had every 10-year-old kid in the country running around zapping aliens with his dad's staple gun.
But... Space: 1999: The Reboot? Could there possibly be a more unnecessary TV series?
Let the arguments begin.
