Hey guys!
Take a tv series and add your own plot twists that would totally sink the show and send its viewers scrambling to change the dial.  The show may be successful or it may be well on its way to screwing itself over anyway (but hey, why not speed up its demise?).

Ones I thought up for Breaking Bad:
Walt comes home and discovers, to his surprise, that the whole family wants in on the meth-making business.  Everyone (including the baby) is dressed up in yellow suits, ready to start cooking.
Also..
Towards the conclusion of the series, a nervous Jesse decides to do one last cooking session with Walt.  When he arrives at the lab, the lights are all off.  When he flips on the lights, all of Walt's family (including Hank and Marie) shout "SURPRISE!" and Jesse sees that Walt has set up the whole meth-cooking scheme to get Jesse to learn about chemistry.  A very confused Jesse is embraced by Walt, who tearfully exclaims how proud he is of his ex-student, and has a celebration cake for Jesse along with balloons, party favors, confetti and streamers.

Wow, that would pretty much guarantee the end of the series, as no one would watch anymore.  TeddyR

What stupid/funny plot twists could YOU add to a series (old OR recent) that would eff it up irreparably?

^ Good idea!

A rather generic idea that would screw up any series would be to give the main character super powers and a cape.
I'm imagining Dexter flying over Miami in a superhero costume, looking for bad guys to kill.

There is no mother. There are no children. Ted is dying alone because no woman was "good enough" for his asinine romantic idealist standards and he's prattling to two figments of his dementia-fused imagination. Fin.



I always felt a little cheated that THAT 70S SHOW didn't end with Red finally losing it (possibly Kitty dies, or it just truly sinks in what wastes of space his offspring are, coupled with the downspiral his career took in the later seasons), murdering all those slacker douchebags who never left his basement, and moving to Detroit.

The group from Walking Dead goes to Washington DC in the 2nd season.

(genuinely been waiting for higher infrastructure plot arc since the CDC place, joking aside I think Walking Dead could have benefited from some of the cool stuff Revolution did regarding new groups formed and whatnot)

The plane crash survivors of Lost finding out that they actually didn't survive and they've been in purgatory the whole time.
Alexis of Dynasty is not really such a bad person at all.
Sam of Quantum Leap was behind it all the time and never made the leap home.
The A Team just kept on running from the law.
Bobby of Dallas didn't die, he was just in the shower.

Oops: those things really did happen, didn't they?  Wink

Once Upon a Time/ Agents of SHIELD crossover.

Considering they are owned by the same company, I'm pretty sure somebody it trying to make it work.

At least, that's what Gary Busey told me...

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

Gilligan's Island

The Russians start WW3...
The Professor picks all this info up on the radio and tells everyone - there is no home to go back to.



They all live happily ever after on the island - no visitors - no crazy adventures - no wacky plans to escape the island.

A hip-hoppin' black couple (Ice Cube and Queen Latifah) move next door to the Douglases in GREEN ACRES and the Douglases (and the other Hooterville residents) slowly adopt their ways.  Gangstas, goofy black stereotypes and other assorted shenanigans join the "fun".  The title gets changed to GREEN AKIZ.

The Munsters

Christopher Lee (Dracula) visits 1313 Mockingbird Lane (1965)


Christopher Lee (Dracula) demands that Lilly starts to drink blood once again - and wreck havoc on the town.


She does. Lilly also convinces Herman and the family to drink blood as well.


The people in town show up with the police and US Army. The Munsters take the back road out.
They then move back to the old country. Transylvania awaits the horrors.


1313 Mockingbird Lane is now a horror museum (1967)
