What is best in life? Answer: Hollywood leaving our '80s classics alone. Well, that's not happening, so what's next best in life? Answer: If the reboots come to premium streaming services instead of the dull, predictable networks.

Conan the Barbarian is next up for a reboot, we've learned. Den of Geek reports that Amazon is developing a series based on the 1982 movie that will simply be called Conan. has additional details, describing this storyline: "Driven out of his tribal homelands, Conan wanders the mysterious and treacherous world of civilization where he searches for purpose in a place that rejects him as a mindless savage."

We're told it won't arrive before 2019, so who knows if it'll really happen. Does this mean that Arnold Schwarzenegger will finally give up his plans to crush his enemies, see them driven before him and hear the lamentations of the fans who hoped for a third movie in the original franchise? That would be truly good.
