How could anyone think that turning Bad Teacher into a TV show was a good idea?
Not every movie is worth adapting into a TV series.
TNT's Snowpiercer is more than enough proof that even the best movies don't always translate well to the smaller screen. But while most movie-to-TV spin-offs feel like blatant cash crabs, every now and then you come across a real head-scratcher. These are the shows that you know in your gut were destined to fail: the shows that you're positive anyone in their right mind must have known would lose money. These are some of the weirdest movie spin-off TV shows ever made.
Attack of the Killer Tomatoes
Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, alongside its three (yes, three!) sequels, are B-movie parodies wherein the world's greatest threat are sentient, genetically enhanced tomatoes. They are appreciated almost solely by purveyors of the schlockiest cult cinema, which apparently was enough reason for someone working at Fox Kids in the 1990s to turn it into an animated series for children. Predictably, it flopped...or rather, splattered.
