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.
The Bad Teacher movie was a borderline laugh-free comedy about Cameron Diaz becoming a middle school teacher in order to afford breast implants. It was the kind of movie that people forgot about before it even hit theaters, so it's quite frankly baffling that anyone would think to give it a TV series. Apparently people wanted to forget about Bad Teacher all over again, because the series was canceled after only three episodes.
