Where the hell is Rube? I need my coffee.
People, this is hallowed ground. Show some respect.

While it was nice to see the return of the show, this reeked of Straight to DVD production value.
The excessive use of slow-mo and transitional effects were annoying to me, the original series just had a more polished feel to it.
The story line was OK, while it was good they tied up the absence of Rube. His general presence was missed, he kept everyone grounded.
In all honesty this movie has lost some of the charm of the series that made it quirky and dark. I am not saying it's bad, I just think they could have done so much better with how long this has been in production.
And to anyone who may quip that I am looking to find fault I watched the series when it had it's run on TV and bought the DVD's when they came out. I love the series as much as the next person and I want to see it picked up again but not at the expense of the story and the ideals that made the series what it was.
