Normally, when a beloved character from a long-gone but still-beloved movie series or TV show returns, fans are able to pontificate over whether or not the return is wanted, needed, or a good idea.

So yesterday (November 28), when — without warning or fanfare — Xfinity released a new commercial featuring the return of the title character from the 1982 film E.T.,  people were surprised, (mostly) delighted; the commercial features Henry Thomas reprising his role as Elliott and reuniting with his extraterrestrial pal. Of course, fans had feelings about this  and many took to Twitter to discuss them.
