Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: “Party On, Wayne!” Edition


There are many who loudly lament the perception that movie studios only want established properties, remakes, sequels and reboots, but as Major Spoilers own Zach Woolf once said to Rob Liefeld (I’ll just pick up that name I dropped, there), it’s not universal.  Still, in a world where the new iteration of Star Trek is held in high regard and Battlestar Galactica Version 2.0 is still considered a high point of writing, there are still a lot of properties yet to return.  As recently as last year, talk of another installment of ‘Wayne’s World’ was still swirling, proving once and for all that nostalgia is an unstoppable force of nature, equal to any Sharknado.  Indeed, the idea of sixty-year-old Garth and fifty-year-old Wayne dealing with prostate trouble and mortgages does seem funny, but in ALL the wrong ways, leading us to today’s ill-advised query…
