It’s so refreshing these days to see a movie that’s not a sequel or prequel or reboot. That’s probably why I had no idea what this was going in; I’d forgotten I’d seen the trailer and there wasn’t that much hype over this one. So I had no expectations on this one and was pleasantly surprised. I didn’t quite get the title, but Wikipedia was there in the pinch – this was based on a TV show from the 1960s that ran for four seasons… huh. I guess it IS a reboot, nevermind then.
