Title: TV shows you'd like to see made...
Post by: Pacman000 on May 16, 2017, 04:03:58 PM
Looking at the board stats the TV forum is one of the least used.  That makes me sad.  So here's a topic which should get everyone interested:

What TV shows would you like to see made?

It could be an proposed series which never got made, a general theme you'd like to see explored, even a remake of an old series you enjoyed! It doesn't even have to be in this era.  We're just imagining after all. No reason I can't take a time machine back to the 60's and convince Fox to greenlight Irwin Allen's proposed Lost World TV show. (There's what I'd like to see. Now it's your turn.)  :smile:

Season 2 of Firefly would be nice to see.

Land of the Lost.  It was remade once before in 1991 on Nickelodeon and that was pretty good.

I wish the CW would give us a Green Lantern show go go with The Flash, Green Arrow, Supergirl and such.  Especially since they keep teasing the character.

or at least could we get more seasons of the animated series that came out right after the movie.  It was actually pretty good.

A prequel series to A Cabin in the Woods showing previous victims and all the different monsters they teased but really didn't get to see how they were utilized.  


Oh...and definitely one more that I was reminded of by the Frozen topic up in the bad movies sections.

The director of the film said he would love to make a tv series called S#!t-Talkers  where you'd take movie "critics"  who nitpick films  and put them in the same situation as the people in the films and see if they'd survive, 

I can't tell you how many of these people I would love to see have to put their money where their mouth is...

I'd like to see 2nd seasons of Alcatraz and Terra Nova.

I'd like to see almost any TV show with a dinosaur.

I'd also like to see s Swiss Family Robinson show.  There's been at least three attempts to turn the concept into a show, but none of those lasted more than a season. (Not counting the World Masterpiece Theater anime or loose adaptions, like Lost in Space.)

S*** Talkers is an interesting concept. How would that work? Would that be legal?

Keep the ideas flowing folks!

I was a fan of Dark Angel, from Fox, back in like 2001 or 2002 with Jessica Alba.  Friday night sci-fi show. 

A remake or sequel of sorts would be cool.

     DC Animated made a fifteen minute short based on The Spectre; I think it would make a great series.

Had Constintie continued, we might have got the Specter in a show

I'd like to see a lot more game shows revived.
THE JOKER'S WILD, BREAK THE BANK, CONCENTRATION, LET'S MAKE A DEAL, BEAT THE CLOCK, TREASURE HUNT, GONG SHOW, etc.

I don't think there are enough drugs in Hollywood to bring THE GONG SHOW back.

Plus, it wouldn't last long in this PC era. First time something funny went viral from the show, lawsuits over "insensitive" treatment of the contestants would start flying. Might as well try to get a shot-for-shot remake of BLAZING SADDLES made.

But they are bringing The Gong Show back...

For some reason I'd like a live action show similar to Pokemon, Digimon, Monster Rancher, etc.

Pokeball Go!

For Decades, there's alway been some take on a someone who saw something they shouldn't have seen, & find themselves fugitives of some super secret organization....

I may have brought this up on some other thread, but I've always wanted to see said fugitive turn to some cousins out in the boondocks, And when said clandestine organization catches up, they find out the hard way, these rednecks are part of an old crime family going back to Prohibition, and are not to be messed with.

Not in a Dukes of Hazzard way, but more like The Cancer Man from The X Files has a runin with Anton Chigurh, and no one realizes just how ugly this is about to get..

Personally, I would love to see someone with some major balls revive MAX HEADROOM. No mincing around PC kindness. Go straight for the throats of corporation control of government and social media, governmental "three-card monte" schemes that endanger the lives of its own citizens, and basically crank the paranoia of THE LONE GUNMEN series to 14 or 15. And even though he is only a computer virus, Max should be a bit of a cold-blooded imp, not unlike Loki.

Also, I'd love to see a crime/action series in which the main character is an overweight and slightly derpy woman, but the show NEVER addresses her weight directly. No fat jokes. No references to BIG anything. Just have her do the usual cop/PI/action hero stuff, except she gets winded more easily and is more prone to use short-cuts or just shoot the person instead of chasing them.

I would also like to see a fairly serious SF/fantasy series in which the main cast is always at risk of being killed. Back in the 70s, DC had a comic called NIGHT FORCE which told different supernatural type stories with a cast that changed from story to story, but sometimes brought back characters from previous story lines. During the course of the stories, characters would go insane, be killed, or be maimed for life. Sometimes, they made it through with barely a scratch, but you honestly never knew if they would survive, so the tension was real.

Maybe Video games should stop trying to make movie adaptations and start making tv series instead.

A show set in the Resident Evil, Eternal Darkness, Golden Axe, or plenty of others might be a good idea.  And not necessarily a cartoon either, get a decent budget and make a live action adaptation.
