That is simply not true. I just went over my points one by one for you, and in turn you end up misrepresenting what I say.
You claim that every SINGLE one my points assume something very narrow based on less than two minutes of material and brief comments from the cast.
How is my point about casting a lot of the old actors either of those things? This is information we do have. That has nothing to do with your time frame of 2 minutes of anything, or comments from anyone, so you're flat out getting it wrong there.
"Very narrow" is also a straw man from you. My assumptions are ironically of broad nature. They are all the exact opposite of minute details no one should possible dare to speculate about.
When I commented on the look of the new series (where you just agreed that I made no great leap to assume that the latest 'actual footage' teaser is probably a good indication of how it will look) why does it matter if that teaser had gone on for 2, 5 or 10 minutes, when we are talking about the overall color scheme, the digital look of it etc?
These things are immediately noticeable. The look is present in all the scenes.
Again your "the two minutes of material" is completely irrelevant to my point, and serves as a quick and cheap way to discredit the substance of what I said.
That is not an honest way of engaging.
And "brief comments from the cast"?
I mentioned one thing. One thing. By Kyle. A comment of his, that didn't even stand alone in my argument, but served to support the point regarding the status quo of Cooper as a somewhat changed man due to time and experiences.
That is hardly a massive leap given that exact context.
But that somehow simply gets represented simply as "Brief comments from the cast" in your version. You see the problem here?
You cannot misrepresent my statements, do these straw men, and based on that label my speculation and theories "MASSIVE leaps".

Looking like the old show has zero bearing, as far as either of us can tell, on if it will be re-watchable, addictive, etc. Isn't it possible it will be all those things, but in a different way? Perhaps the effect it will have, and will strive for, will be in the opposite direction, even, and be sobering or uncomfortable to watch? Like, I don't know, the beginning of s2e1 or FWWM was?
You use the words "Isn't it possible." Of course it is possible. I need to repeat........we are speculating here. Surprises of all kinds, shapes and sizes are technically possible.
So the minute you do the "Isn't it possible" rhetoric, you're not arguing against my speculative points.
Instead, there is a discussion to be had regarding whether something is likely.
And re-watchability is naturally subjective. Some people find "Show Girls" re-watchable.
So keeping in mind the subjective nature of that topic, for ME the warmth and the look of the old series add to that, and is an addicting contrast to the darkness of the world.
Removal of that element can therefor be cause for concern. And it's important to point out that a concern in one area doesn't mean that you close your mind to possibilities of other qualities presenting themselves.

Just in order to feel right, I assume it's crafted that way. So at a bare minimum I would hope so.

And I believe 100% his intention when he casted the original was not to create lightning in a bottle or make something infinitely rewatchable, he was just going with his gut per usual.
We agree there. And that in itself could be cause for some concern, in addition to excitement, about the new series!
