I'm talking about when someone takes what is already made, what is already a good thing, and they alter it slightly or a lot or all together, because they think that what they've got to offer is better than what already exists.
Most of the time, I'm pretty sure this should never be done. There might be the odd exception out there, but I doubt that chance happening comes along more than once a century. I suppose I'm more talking about tv shows and movies... because I was thinking just now that it's not true when it comes to ice cream. I like vanilla, but I like it more with strawberries or raspberries or other type fruit. I also like it with chocolate sauce or caramel sauce.
No, I think more of what I'm talking about has to do with stories. When the author is in charge ...well that's up to them if they change their own stories around, whether it is for better or worse, but I'm not going to complain all that much because it is their making and they can do with it what they like. I might just stick to whichever is better, and I suppose that's just what I'll have to do when it comes to strangers coming in and changing a good story.
For example, I really like the series called "The Sword of Truth" by Terry Goodkind. But I really don't like "Legend of the Seeker", the tv series "based" upon the first book. Normally I'd provide links for these subjects, but I really can't find myself to promote the show any further. The only think I've liked about it so far is it helps provide good visuals as to how that world would look. That's about all the good I'll say about it. Well, and I guess I don't have too much of an objection to how the characters are portrayed... but that's all I'll say about it.
I say we just leave the change making to the edibles. You can spit out bad food, you can't un-watch an hour. It would be good if you could because there would definitely be a few movies and shows on that list.
