There’s little hope any resuscitated property like this can ever be as good as you remember. That model has proven to be a game-changer in the industry.
There’s no denying that Netflix is very good at giving its customers what they want, and those customers in turn seem to be mostly happy to subscribe and tune in.

This is from from 2006, when Brosnan was on the David Letterman show promoting his (somewhat) underrated and (very) offbeat film The Matador.
Not too many big stars would have taken on The Matador, but Brosnan is frankly gleeful in the role of the skirt-chasing hit man with maybe, barely, a wee bit of conscience.
No matter how fast she runs, how many corners she turns, she can’t find her way out of this weird, alternate universe where men think dick pics are a replacement for small talk and getting to know a girl. One more crotch selfie and she might write men off for good… Kline Brooks is the quintessential billionaire bad boy—dark, styled, short hair, muscles for days, and a panty-dropping smile. As his employee, he won’t touch her with a ten foot pole.
You wouldn’t know it from the crowd behind Brosnan.No doubt that fans of the original 2001 cult comedy will be satisfied, overstuffed even, with a bounty of callbacks and origin stories to their favorite moments and characters.But I can’t help but think that, were Netflix to crunch the numbers hard enough and conclude that Pine’s rock God character was the most beloved thing in this new, bizarro prequel series (taking place on the first day of camp two months prior to the events of the first film), it’d be easy enough to rewrite the character’s history, despite what happens to him in the final episode. Georgia Cummings has zero luck with dating, and the era of the internet is not her friend.The line appears in the third episode of Netflix’s “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp.” As spoken by Chris Pine playing a legendary musician that appears first in flashback and eventually in the show proper, there’s something indefinable—beyond Pine’s pitch-perfect delivery and his sad/confused hangdog expression—about what makes it so funny. These fleeting moments of truly-earned and hilarious comedy, mixed with a fully-committed cast and an overall amiable, progressive and silly worldview, are the reasons to catch up if you haven’t already binged the series this past weekend when it premiered.
