I’m so confused. Fargo is a wonderful film. I feel weird about the forthcoming TV show. But Martin Freeman! And Billy Bob! It has to be good, right?
Then I started thinking, “Have there been any successful film-to-TV stories?” Then I was like, “Duh! M*A*S*H!”
Off the top of my head, hare some more big screen to small screen transitions:
-Buffy the Vampire Slayer! (Another duh moment) Does that also beget Angel? Show > movie. Except that the movie had Pee Wee Herman in it.
-Psycho —> Bates Motel. Haven’t watched it, yet. Hearing good stuff.
-My Big Fat Greek Wedding/My Big Fat Greek Life. No Corbett, no thanks.
-Friday Night Lights. Go Panthers! Err, Lions! Depends which season you’re watching. Always root for Coach Taylor. “Clear Eyes …” Don’t forget the start of it all: the book!
-Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore —> Alice
-Clueless. I think that happened. Did that happen? #Monet
-Beetlejuice. Do animated spin offs really fill this quota? It’s like counting graphic novels in a book reading challenge. I loooved both the film and he animated series.
-Highlander. Really though, there can be only one.
-Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. That feels different because it’s more of franchise. I think it falls into that grey area of all the animated Star Wars, Ghostbusters, and yes, my precious Beetlejuice.
-Hold your hat! And your whip! I forgot The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles. I had such a crush on Sean Patrick Flanery. I still have the VHS tapes.
So, I think Fargo could work. You betcha!
