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 most disappointing thing about all of the Purge movies is how good the premise is and how milquetoast the movies are in comparison. If killing people was actually legal for one night every year, so much sh*t would go down. So why is every Purge move just another bland action-horror romp? The TV show could have been a perfect way to flesh out the world, but instead, it's just more bland action-horror. Sad.
