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.
In 1989, John Travolta and Kirstie Alley starred in an Look Who's Talking, an incredibly stupid (albeit, surprisingly successful) movie about a single mother whose dating life is narrated by her Bruce Willis-voiced baby. Baby Talk is the TV spin-off of that movie, complete with generic brand actors and a whole lot more talking babies. It's exactly as bad as it sounds.
