Nostalgia Algorithm

Very interesting and funny article from Wired magazinethat talks about predicting the popularity of nostalgia entertainment.  I agree that while I’m excited for a new X-Files movie, I’m not quite sure if the timing is right – it hasn’t been quite long enough for me to truly yearn for another movie, and with Lost on the air, that is fulfilling the freaky sci-fi conspiracy show void.  After Lost finishes up would be a perfect time – people would be looking for a similar thing to fill that void, and looking to old DVDs of X-Files and Lost would be a great segue into a new X-Files movie.
