I have seen a lot of movies and tv Series that have had sequels and spin-offs. Some of them like Star trek. Sometimes, somebody takes over the franchise, and many people believe that they are being disrespectful to the maker. But I often wonder just how respectful the fans are being. I can't speak for many people, but I can honestly say, that if I had created a show that had multiple incarnations, the last thing I would want would be for the fans to be fighting amongst themselves over which one was better.
