I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; Hollywood seldom has any original ideas. In fact, I’m convinced that they hate them. They’d much rather role the dice on a pointless remake/reboot, rather than take a chance on a property that could be fantastic. It’s even worse, when they try to turn a popular movie into a sitcom, on a tv budget, with B-list actors and unknowns.
For every great TV adaptation such as M*A*S*H, Buffy, Fargo & Parenthood, there are colossal duds. Like these ones.
