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.
Have you ever listened to an older person tell you about when The Exorcist came out? They act like it was the scariest thing ever, and it's honestly kind of adorable. They'll go, "When I saw The Exorcist people ran out of the theater!" and you're like, "Uh huh, cool" and then you watch it and it's not scary. It's good. It's very well made. But it's not scary. Anyways, some of those old people made a TV show, and it wasn't scary either, and now it's dead.
