Like almost everyone over the age of 30, there have been times where I have been stung by the bee of nostalgia. Our generation seems more determined than almost every other to demand a constant reinforcement of our childhood’s pop culture, whether it’s re-releases, re-makes, re-imaginings… or a combination of all three.
