I liken it to when novels were made into movies and changed aspects of the books. People would say that the movie wasn't true to the source material or that they changed too much of it; that the movie didn't honor the novel or its fans.What's so precious about franchises from your childhood? Genuine question. It's not as though the original will disappear in a puff of smoke.
But in this case it's worse as the creator (and to a lesser degree its star) came out to assure fans that is the "same" thing that they knew, just more adult. And that the show centers around the same character that the original did. Only for it to be released and it's done a 180.
