Reboot: The Guardian Code Release Date February 26, 2018

Back when television networks weren’t run by complete idiots, my generation grew up watching cartoon shows that aired every Saturday morning. Because each television station had to compete against each other for our attention, some of the finest shows ever produced aired during the 90s and early 2000s. This included shows like Batman: The Animated Series, Max Steel (the good version), Bump in the Night, Men in Black: The Animated Series, Freakazoid, and of course, Reboot.

Netflix has picked up the Reboot license and they are close to releasing an all-new series. Based on the trailer alone I can’t tell if it’s a sequel or a reboot (ha ha -Ed), but you can take a look at it and decide for yourself. Here’s the official trailer:

My feelings are a bit mixed about this trailer. On the one hand, the concept of cyberspace superheroes is appealing to me, on the other, that concept had nothing to do with the original premise behind Reboot. Reboot was about computer programs living their daily lives, and this new series seems to focus more on the users on our side of the screen. If you’ve never seen an episode of the emotional series you’d like to get a better understanding of it, Shout Factory TV has the first episode of the series watchable for free online.

Netflix says every episode of Reboot: The Guardian Code will be available to watch on their service starting March 30th, 2018.

I’m holding off my final opinion on this series until after I watch it. Perhaps I may give a review of it if the demand is there. I just would like to make one thing clear, these are not the first humans to ever defend cyberspace on television. That honor belongs to guitarist Sam Collins.
