When I originally read Justin's email, I read "gritty reboot" as "gritty robot". And I thought to myself, what property wouldn't usually have gritty robots in it, and I came up with Shakespeare. I thought a scene from Hamlet with robots would look kinda cool.
It wasn't until after I did the sketch I decided to take a look at the email to check something and I saw that it really said reboot.
But it can still work right? That's right, cause now Hamlet has been rebooted as an alternate world with robots in a medieval setting that not only have to worry about revenge and evil Uncle's, they have to worry about rust. And nothing's grittier than rust.
