The Newest Trend Has No End!

Well remakes have taken over for years, to very little cheers, now it seems that more than ever people prove they are not very clever. Now it is take a movie and make it a TV show. Pffft who cares if two hours worked fine when we can give twenty two episodes a go.

Let's make a TV show.
One the audience will know.
Let's make it so great,
That all can just relate.

Beverly Hills Cop!
That won't be a flop.
Oopsy, it was a fail.
Maybe someone didn't pay its bail?

Con Air would be grand.
For 22 hours they'd fly across land.
It would have one big gas tank.
That ought to put money in the bank.

Major League would go over.
The ball would impress rover.
Cut 162 games down to 22.
Much easier to view.

Weekend at Bernies would be a hit.
Who cares if he would smell like umm spit.
Carry a dead guy around all year.
Yep, that would get a cheer.

The Expendables coming near you.
But only one episode could come due.
They'd waste all their budget hiring old farts.
But they would win lots of hearts.

Fast and The Furious TV!
Be faster than you could see.
Fancy cars that can go.
It would just help the sequels grow.

Home Alone would work.
It would be such a perk.
Christmas all year round.
Throw bricks if the bad guys surround.

Big Momma's House is near.
Just watch that growing rear.
A fat suit show for you.
Might take viewers from Honey Boo Boo.

Kick Ass would be a hit.
The PTA would hiss and spit.
Have to go all @$$ in the title.
That may make them idle.

Sadly the cat probably just gave them more "great" ideas to pursue. Maybe not, as then something original they'd have to view. Brand name power sells I guess as they make more of a TV mess. On 99.99% of them I'll take a pass with my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  3. You probably did give them ideas. It rarely works though. Buffy the Vampire Slayer and MASH are the only shows I can think of that were far bigger hits than the movie version.

  4. Sometimes remakes work for me
    Cause one, two, three, I never see

  5. This is why I only read a few bestsellers. I stick to midlist writers and love independent films. So much of the same thing is part of television and movies. Flicking through cable channels there is so much "save the world" action drama because that sort of movie sells better internationally. Good post.

    1. Yep, save the world always seems to be the way
      And it is always America that needs saving every day

  7. There's a reason I hate TV;
    Too little that's original to see -
    Maybe you should become a screenwriter Pat,

    1. That would sure be nice

  8. "'Well remakes have taken over for years"
    Movies into TV shows only for the cheers
    No big bucks
    Out of luck

  9. Blue, Blue, Where for art thou you?
    I like seeing new peeps, especially, women, it's true
    And women on top, even better. Who knew?
    I don't mean anything sexual by that
    There could be a reality show on Pat's mat:
    "Rhyme Time's Fight for First Place:
    How bloggers prep for the race
    I'd tune in, in this case.
    To learn Hank's secret's, I would.
    It could get ugly and should.
