Indeed. Their movie was a remake of NEM, their comics had a fanwank factor that makes ENT's fourth season look timid in comparison and now they actually repeat old episodes in comics.
Add the half-assed nature of the reboot and it becomes obvious that these writers lack new ideas and play it hyper-safe. As they get away with it I can't say I blame them.
