Movies that should have been TV shows instead
Just because a movie is built for the big screen doesn't necessarily mean it's best suited for it. Countless adaptations of novels have cut major content to fit within two hours — or worse, omitted key thematic elements in order for studios to feel like they had a mass-marketable product. Then there are the overcrowded superhero ensemble flicks that cram in way too many characters just to match their comic book source material.
However, a lot of the issues these inherently flawed films share can all be remedied by one simple solution: TV. It's the format of the future, loyal readers, and this list is here to spell out why. Read on as we look back on some would-be blockbuster movies that would have fared far better as television shows.
