The user was like a god, so to speak. The user would play games, causing a large purple cube to descend upon an area of the city. If the citizens inside won, and defeated the user, the cube would leave, no harm done. On the other hand, if they lost, they were "nullified" and became slug-like creatures with no apparent conciousness. Also, the area covered by the cube is wrecked. The games are the funniest part of the show. They often spoofed on actual games and tv shows. One of my favorites is when Matrix, a muscular, green humanoid and his girlfriend, AndrAIa, enter a game, along with a younger version of Matrix. Once inside the game, they tap their badge-like icons, and become game characters. The younger kid becomes bald, short, and stocky. Matrix becomes an exact, but larger, replica. Basically, they are now Dr. Evil and Mini-Me!!!! LOL. The Austin Powers-spoofed character was just plain dorky..........0.o
2. To restart a movie, comic, TV, or book franchise in hopes that it won't jump the shark again. Sometimes works spectacularly (Battlestar Galactica). Sometimes falls flat on its face.
2. I was contemplating the idea of a Knight Rider reboot the other day. Would be interesting, definitely, but would it really be Knight Rider without the Hoff?
