Probably. The reboot is being driven by Joel Hodgson, who was never as funny as Mike to begin with. Joel always seemed ored and too cool for the room. Mike Nelson had a fresh enthusiasm for the material. I have always preferred Mike to Joel.
If this review of the new host’s debut is any indication, I’m not going to like the new direction.
More importantly, we got a hint of the new voice (Jonah) Ray will presumably provide; Ray’s riffs included jabs at xenophobia, racism, cat-calling, and Internet trolls.
But if the new show is going to be MSJWT3K — forget it. I’ll stick with Rifftrax.
Yes, even though Felicia Day will be attached to the reboot.
