I echo this. Regardless of the success rate, there is nothing wrong with the attempt.

Having watched it yesterday, helps me to recall a line from King Caspian, in the latest Narnia movie, Voyage of the Dawn Treader. When offered the opportunity to cross over to Aslan's country, Caspian ultimately declines it, stating that, "...all this time, I've been more concerned with what was taken from me, instead of what was given......".

I tend to think of Langy that way. He has never focused on what he could have done, to help effect a return of the original show, in some form or fashion. He was always too busy, pointing fingers at someone who he thought had done him some injustice. Even if he hit the mark, with folks like Moore and Hammer, our acknowledgment that it happened and that it was a business decision out of our control, somehow made us co-conspirators, in his delusional mind.

He is a pitiful case but, has been given much, much more than his "15 minutes of fame". We really need to move on and let him fade into the shadows.
Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
The night is falling
You have come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore .

Children are a message that we send
to a time that we will never see.
