Eagle-eyed Topless Roboteer Rob N. found the above video which seems to indicate a ReBoot… reboot. Fact: Rainmaker Studios is apparently the new company that formed from MainFrame Entertainment, which originally made ReBoot. Item that Rob N asserts as fact: None of the original ReBoot makers are currently at Rainmaker, or working on the rebooted ReBoot (this is already getting annoying). Rob’s opinion masquerading as fact: ReBoot was 30 minutes of crappy CG, Canadian misery before new episodes of Dragonball Z aired back in Toonami’s glory days. My friends and I wept and shrieked whenever ReBoot was on, until we were rescued by the clean early ’90s animation of DBZ and its taut storytelling. However, Ms Robot loves herself some ReBoot, so I felt compelled to post this news anyways so I don’t have to sleep on the couch tonight.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
