Optimus Who?

I don't understand all the nerdy excitement about the "Transformers" movie. I never even watched the show, and the only reason it and Ninja Turtles and Care Bears and the like are popular again is because our generation is starting to get a bit of disposable income, and the best way to rob us blind is to tug on the old nostalgia heartstrings.

It's been like this since the '70s, when people started to get stupid and reminisce about the toys, movies, and music of their childhood because the actual memories of friends and family are, in most cases, traumatic. Think "Happy Days." Think Reality Bites. Now think "Transformers" movie. It's the exact same thing.
