Episode #62: TV to Movie

April 7th, 2013
  • The A-Team
  • Dragnet
  • G.I. Joe:  The Rise of Cobra

  • Yo Joe!  I'm a Cop...  of Fortune.  Few flavors are sweeter than the savor of the nostalgic: that eureka moment when T.V. or movies zap you to your memory palace and stand in awe of the power of the brain.  What about using ideas from the 'small-screen' past?  

    The pros: an almost guaranteed fan base, the artistic endeavor of adaptation, AND the possible reawakening of once-treasured paradigms.  Battlestar Galactica, anyone??

    The cons: the odds are against a remake/adaptation, the claim of unoriginality, AND the possible/inevitable accusations of "you ruined my childhood."  Say like, anything George Lucas has done past 1983. 

    Three films.  Three variant sources.  One question: Will it Blend?

    Bonus: We saw the new G.I. Joe movie & give you a brief head's up on whether or not to go see it and why.  

    Here are 2 fan-cut trailers for G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
