Worst TV Show Turned Movie List


I'm not going to add much commentary, I think these movies speak for themselves.

  1. Miami Vice: I really don't expect much plot from a Michael Mann movie. In fact I expect mostly action. But Colin Farrell's greasy hair, and shitty acting was just wrong. Was this supposed to be an action flick, a thriller, or a comedy? Maybe if Mann had picked one it would have been a better movie, instead of just bad.
  2. Starsky and Hutch: The show was a little before my time but watching Ben Stiller act like Ben Stiller in another Ben Stiller movie wasn't that interesting.
  3. Dukes of Hazard: I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either.
  4. Lost in Space: Yes, this movie sucked. But honestly, the TV show kind of sucked as well.
  5. Thunderbirds: I have intentionally avoided cartoons turned movies, such as Scooby Doo , GI Joe, and the Flintstones, as they pretty much always turn bad. But I have to mention the Thunderbirds, since it was puppets instead. So if you can't take a kids TV show involving puppets and make it a decent movie, you shouldn't be making movies.

I know there are more movies that should be on this list, and as I watch them, I will add them, so check back.

Let Me Off The Bus

The bus I usually take in the morning, is a nice double-decker, clean, and the passengers usually don't reek of B.O. as most are professionals like me, busing into the city for work.

The other day, I hit the button to get off at my stop. A stop that multiple people usually get off on. The bus comes to a stop, so I get up and go down the stairs. Another lady who was sitting on the top floor follows me down. As we get to the door the driver shuts it. I look at him:
Driver - You want off here?
Me - (looking back to the girl, then to the driver) that is why we walked down the stairs.
He opens the door.

Why am I writing about this? 1. because I haven't posted in a few days. 2. Because the bus driver was a impatient douche. 3. just because I was thinking of it, and am sitting in front of my computer
