Forum game: Improbable TV spinoffs
« on: September 23, 2014, 12:52:41 AM »
I had a ridiculous idea for a Frasier spinoff, and decided to try and start a game with it.
My opening contribution: Niles Crane: Private Eye.
Linux. Because a world without walls or fences won't need Windows or Gates.

NCIS: Omaha
Cold in Denver
(put Fargo in place of either city and it becomes probable  ;D)

Wednesday Night Lacrosse (on a major network or ESPN)

Dancing with the Bears (and I don't mean the Chicago football team, but that probably is also improbable)

Vassal (set in the medieval times where a manuscript-writing monk helps out the Duke's daughter solve crimes against the serfs of the dukedom)

*Jayne's World: Adventures in the 'Verse*

Where Jayne Cobb has decided to part with Captain Reynolds and the crew of the *Serenity* and go off in his own, macho man, direction.  Wearin' the hat, of course.

"It's party time." *racks shotgun* "Excellent."

Star Trek:  The Amish Years

That is sooooo funny.  Perhaps the winner.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

I can't recall where, exactly, but in I want to say either the Browncoats 10yr Special group interview, or on a CE DVD narrative VO of either the series or Serenity it was mentioned that post Firefly/Serenity Jayne was seen as having done just that - leave Mal and the crew to captain his own ship.  Now that I think on it, I'm leaning towards the Browncoats 10yr Special, as they mentioned some other things of "what would have been" and gave some otherwise would-be spoilers for those that haven't seen it.

The Jane Hathaway Show.
Remember Miss Hathaway from the original Beverly Hillbillies?

It would be kind of like the Mary Tyler Moore show, only sillier.

South Park Avenue...a group of rich, foulmouthed kids doing ridiculous things each week

Orcan Black...a cloned whale reeks havoc

Listen to the 'mustn'ts'. Listen to the 'don'ts'. Listen to the 'shouldn'ts', the 'impossibles', the 'won'ts'. Listen to the 'you'll never haves', then listen close to me... Anything can happen . Anything can be.

I've got it, it might be contagious, anyway:

Dirty Jobs starring Mike Rowe.
Filling in for Mike this entire season ...
Niles Crane from Fraser.

There that should make the little buggar  happy.
