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 the Limitless movie, Bradley Cooper takes some cool super-drug that unlocks 100% of his brain power instead of the 10% that every other loser is using (which is a myth, by the way). In the Limitless TV show, Bradley Cooper returns to give the cool super-drug to some less cool, not Bradley Cooper guy who we don't care about. That's pretty much it: That's the entire Limitless TV show. Sorry.
