We spend some time discussing Deadpool and returning the essence of a character to future iterations. Then we move to discussing reboots and sequels as a whole through film television and gaming.  When should something be rebooted? What makes a reboot fresh and innovative and what makes a reboot overuse

Should I start with the 15% Rotten Tomatoes score before I walked into the press screening of Fantastic Four (aka “Fant4stic”)?
