What TV Shows should be made into movies?


These should be limited to TV shows that have NOT been made into movies yet.

You can put in rumored or even being filmed titles.

None. Most of them are crap. That is unless they're continuing on from the actual series (a Soranos movie I think could work quite well).

How about Get Smart? Most movies based on TV shows are spoofs anyway, so this could work.

but Leela is really in a coma and Frye is waiting by her bedside the whole time talking to her
and combine it with the scifi movie
Spoiler:
Solaris
and you'd have a monumental money loser for Fox but an incredible piece of science fiction.

Small Wonder

couldn't resist due to a thread over in the tvshows forum.

Seriously, Quantum Leap. They mentioned this for a tv movie back in 2002 to kick off a spin off series on sci-fi having Sam's daughter trying to get him back. It's on imdb, but haven't heard squat since 2002.

There already was a Get Smart movie - it was good, too... it was called Nude Bomb.

There was a movie in 1968 called Thunderbird Six - based on the Thunderbirds story, but of course is basically the same thing as this.
