Here's the Scoop...

Pulsetv RadioA Coming to America sequel? A Final Destination reboot? I think we're at the downward slide of the whole sequel/reboot juggernaut that's been sweeping the entertainment industry for far too long.

We don't need a Coming to America sequel, and we certainly don't need a reboot of the Final Destination franchise, which just thinking about it makes my head hurt.

Are you getting tired of sequels, prequels, reboots, re-imaginings, remakes, and so on and so forth? I know I can't be the only one! Please, send me your complaints and grievances. The best of the best might just make into a future issue.

Be Well,
Steve
