Please Kill This "Last Starfighter" TV Reboot

Were you a 10-year-old boy in the 1980s? Then you will be super excited about The Last Starfighter getting rebooted for television! Hurray!

The Starfighter Chronicles will feature a teenage human being plucked from Earth based on his totally tubular video game playing skills absolutely nothing you recognize from the original.

The show wouldn’t be a direct sequel or remake of the film, however. Instead it’s described as “a serialized story about alien law enforcement” with a focus on “instilling a moral code.”

Dafuq?

Also, the plan is to make the show immersive via virtual reality because high-tech gimmicks are always awesome.

People love wearing expensive bulky accessories on their faces while watching TV, right?

Yeah, expect this project to die a quiet and well deserved death.

    I was a preteen girl in the 80s who watched this more than a dozen times on HBO. This needs to die before it starts.
