Invent a Spin-Off

The greatest TV in history is being made right now. The worst TV in history is being made right now.

Invent a Spin-Off

Postby havocSchultz on Fri Apr 21, 2006 11:13 am

soooo.... the fact that the This Show's Still On Thread has seemed to slightly gone off topic and included some "spin-offs" of shows that would be more enjoyable (and i swear - i had no responsibility in the threadjack whatsoever... :wink: ) i figured instead continuing to take it off course - might as well start a thread in regards to some of the stuff we started discussing... here's a sampling...

i want CSI:Amsterdam...

al kinds of fun possibilities there...


Won't be seen on American tv anytime soon, sadly.
Sex & violence?
Yes.
Drug use & people having a rocking good time?
Nyet.
I would work as an unpaid extra on CSI: Amsterdam.


it would be great... every episode would have them checking for DNA off of half smoked blunts... and there would be SOOOOOOOOO much usuage of those little portable uv/black light devices...

so, what TV spinoffs would you "like" to see...

A spinoff of "The Shield" called "Dutch" where we follow Dutch's transfer to a new precinct and watch him slowly turn into a crazed cop that often walks a thin line between cop and criminal.

A spinoff involving Scott Baio's character from Happy Days (I loves me some Scott Baio ;) ). Maybe his life after the Happy Days years when he gets together with Erin Moran's character. You can even call it Joanie Loves Chachi or something.

I'd rather see a spin-off to Charles in Charge entitled "Charles is Charged" where we find out that he used to spy on Nicole Eggert while she was sleeping through a small glor...i mean peep hole in the wall...

OMG another great CSI spin off - hire that guy that played Inigo Montoya in Princess Bride and have him play a lead detective in a group of FBI profilers or something. Or maybe they could just replay original CSI episodes 23 times a day on Spike TV.


i vote - all of the above, in just one show though...

A spin off of The Beachcombers, which follows the adventures of Relic, who's houseboat has been upgraded with an AI personality, and has mastered the secrets of The Necronomicon. He resurrects Bruno Gerussi and makes him his herald, as they travel through time and dimension on a quest to rid the multiverse of demons and 5th level entities.

I would call it "The Beachcombers: This Party Is Over"

Best cartoon EVAR. Mr. Passenger and his cat Melanie, Simon and the girl with the star shaped hair. Or how about some Hilarious House Of Frankestein, with Vincent Price, and the fantastic Billy Van.

Or better still, The Star Lost, The Littlest Hobo, and The King of Kensington

How about a spin-off of "Lost" called "Found" where they use the Others as the main focus and actually ANSWER the questions they ask in "Lost". Make it a block of TV on Wednesday nights.

Or better yet: have it on the day before a new episode of Lost so the previous week's questions were answered before new ones are asked.

no need to start a new thread... throw in all variations of Degrassi and a lil bit of North of 60 and of course some Corner Gas, and you've pretty much listed them all...

I still want to see a Doctors Without Borders spinoff of ER, featuring Luka Kovac as the brave, endangered doctor.

The Africa episodes were the best the show has done in YEARS, particularly when he was presumed dead. I suppose they played out all the emotion they possibly could, but I think it could work. Plenty of current material to draw on, unfortunately.

Of course, being ER, they had to ruin a good thing and hand the juicy plot bone to the increasingly dull Noah Wyle. Now the Africa episodes are "How John Carter misunderstands the political and cultural situation he is in, and people end up dead." So that dumb Americans can learn through Carter in a clumsy way. Laaaame.

@LS - actually, seriously, I agree with you there. They made for tense viewing.

Are we only doing telly or are we doing movies too? I notice this is in Coaxial but I think it could be opened up further to include the films, or films that could end up as television series spinoffs etc.

I'll second that motion.

How about a spinoff of "The Wire" following the rise to power of Omar Little in a new city, make it like a modern day Robin Hood/Scarface in the Ghetto.

My entire team just jumped out of their seats, as when I read that I issued an insanely loud and frightening evil-choking-laugh-scream.

thanks havoc!

Did you know that Chuck Norris once made a woman have an orgasm by simply pointing his finger at her and saying ‘Booyah’?

And yes, Breaker High = Canadian

A spin off of Cheers; it's one show, 30 minutes of Norm having a heart attack while dropping a deuce. It's still called Cheers, but the font is 'drippy blood'.

Also, I would like to see a spin off of Saved by the Bell, where the chick is an absolute slut stripper, and for audacity's sake, call it Showgirls.

PERFECT! We'll take it!



I, for one, don't think NBC fully explored the Cosby-verse. Sure, we got "A Different World" (focusing on Denise Huxtable's further adventures), but what about Theo?

I see Theo growing up as a hard-ass private eye. Something styled after Shaft, but with more of the "life n' love lessons" we can glean from occasional guest shots by the Coz.

THEO (to some gangbanger): "It's time you learned what my ol' man told me years ago, sucka -- 'I brought you INTO this world...and I can take you OUT!' Show 'im, Roach!"

ROACH'S PISTOL: BLAM! BLAM! BLAM!

CLIFF (to Theo): "I've never been more proud of you, son."

Here's the Lost spin-off I want to see.

"They Call Me Mr. Eko"

A weekly, hour-long show where Mr. Eko, mysteriously freed from the island (b/c who the fuck needs answers anyway), travels the world delivering justice with his Jesus stick. Every episode can end with Eko giving a creepy monologue/moral message into his bathroom mirror right before having his daily shave.

And the show can guest star all the people from the Losties' flashbacks where we learn the reason they're all connected is b/c they went to college together. Which is of course where Eko and J-Stick will make their HQ, the old college frat house. That's where the comic relief comes in: Mr. Eko having to deal with his fun-loving, beer swilling, tail-chasing roomies.

Soooooo....who's ready to green-light this baby? Abrams? I'm looking at you!

Getting a new dose of Andre Braugher in 'Thief' reminds me that I want to see a spin-off from the demised 'Homicide' following Frank Pembleton's career as a college instructor/professor, and I want no charactarization whatsoever, just a solid hour every week of Frank browbeating rich and spoiled college kids until they cry, crap themselves, or revoke their wicked ways and join the Peace Corps.

I think they tried something like that with Gideons Crossing, which in retrospect seemed like a forerunner to House.

But I like your idea better - no one rocked The Box like Pembelton. What he would do to college pinhead types, like the ones that keep plagueing Lady Sheridan, would be classic.

Pretty much Weevil and Keith (veronica Mars) solving their own crimes while Veronica's at College. Nuked by last ep's happenings, but you'd get a nice class between technique and class.

A spin off of MXC, with Kenny Blankenship as a doofus judge and Vic Romano as a prosecuting attorney who keeps thwapping him with a fan. Captain Tenneal could be the bailiff, introducing the various MXC contestant tormentors and putting them on trial for the ridiculous stuff they keep doing to the hapless contestants.

There would be a lot of fan-thwapping, and idiotic pronouncements from the bench.

Murdock and B.A. - "Odd Couple for hire". For those awkward occasions when some greedy land baron/oil magnate/cartel boss just won't let your peaceful community be.

All predicaments considered - special consideration given to those that will involve some flying, hence leading to (yet more) "I ain't getting on no damned plane" style shenanigans.

Unused farming machinery (plus all conceivable spare parts) kept rusting in a locked barn considered a "nice to have" rather than essential.

Better yet...what you really want is a sort of "Losers Justice League", comprising only of those B-Listers from the Belissarius/Cannell/Lupo stables.

So you'd get something like the following roster

Manimal
"Cursor" from Automan
Ski and Bubba from Blue Thunder - always moaning because they aren't allowed to borrow "Rolling Thunder"
Jack Striker from "Cover Up"

and maybe even

Romano from T.J. Hooker
the entire/selected cast of Seaquest D.S.V (original series)
Not Ponch from CHIPS, the other one - always moaning about how Ponch got the girls but was rubbish really.

And so forth.

They'd always get to the scenes of big crimes to find the likes of Knight Rider had got there first and saved the day - leaving them to worry about unsubstantial crimes instead, that never get decent copy in the papers.

It'd be a hit I tell you!

That's a brilliant and hilarious idea Doc!

Can Reno Raines of Renegade fame be in it too?

Oh man - of course! There's always room on any B-List for the wonder of Lorenzo Lamas! lol - and that Indian Chief he had as his sort of Devon Miles-type character...he's a shoe-in as well.

And you'd have "Jesse" from StreetHawk always trying to tinker with Reno's bike...a constant source of comedic frisson between those great action moments a series like this would surely bring...

:D :D :D
