Spinoff Online is reporting that Arrow producer Andrew Kreisberg tweeted that the script for a Booster Gold television adaptation will be sent to the SyFy network next week. The Booster Gold show was announced as in development last year, set to focus on the character's origins as a failed sports star who travels back in time to become a superhero, and, since that time, fans have been dreading the show's inevitable demise.
"Eventually, every show gets canceled," said E. E. Yore, president of the Indianapolis chapter of the Booster Gold Fan Club. "Why even bother?"
He then had to excuse himself, citing the fact that he had misplaced his tail. "Thanks for noticing me," he told us.
Yore does have a point. Though fans would likely enjoy seeing a beloved character like Booster on the small screen, even if massively successful, the show would be unlikely to run more than ten seasons, tops. Are ten enjoyable seasons of a TV show, or the more likely two or three, really worth the eventual sadness, internet outrage, petitions, and crowdfunding attempts that will ultimately fail to bring it back?
We think not. And so, as Booster Gold: The Show continues to travel the circle of life, rather than optimistically hope for a fun and entertaining adaptation, we find it more effective to just start bitching about it now.
Thanks a lot, Warner Bros, DC Comics, SyFy Network, NBC Universal, Andrew Kreisberg, and Obama. You killed our favorite show that hasn't even started yet, sometime, possibly ten or more years, in the future.
