Spin off's A great show never dies, it simply spins off into new shows! LOL This week we'll take a look at the ever famous spin off syndrome!!
1. What's your favorite all time spin off? Which show did it spin off?
Angel, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Frasier are three of my favorites. And they were spin offs of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Star Trek (original and TNG), and Cheers respectively.
2. What do you consider the worst spin off ever? Why?
AfterMASH. Because MASH was so well done and this one just felt like a poor excuse to capitalize on the success of MASH without really thinking it through.
3. Is there a show that's ended that you wish they'd done a spin off for? Which one?
I wish they'd done a spin off for the Spike character from Buffy and Angel.
~Bonus~ If you could "end" your current life and make a spin off of it what would you call it? What would be the theme (characters new and eliminated, changes you'd make)?
Heavens...I feel like the past two years of my life have been a spin off in a lot of ways. Not sure I want to do a spin off of a spin off. I'd settle for going back to my old show.
