I don't know if that's a bigger condemnation of them or of the viewing public, honestly.
I can't remember where I read it but one of the signs of the decline of a society or industry is the retelling of the same stories or rehashing the same inventions with slight modifications. I think this fits in both spheres.

Look at Star Wars vs the Marvel Universe. The former is stagnant and moribund with the last iteration coming up this winter and the other is a vibrant multifaceted story tapestry with no sign of stopping. Granted, there are only so many ways one can tell a gigantic space opera but I think the comparison is valid.
