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.

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.

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.

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.

How I left your Mother, a story of a single dad and his two children.  Now that's a tear-jerking sitcom.

OK, The actor who played Niles Crane from Fraser can play the dad, or crazy uncle or whacky neighbor.

Agents of Malta. In the same universe as Agents of Shield, there exists a nemesis to all that is good. Quite a plot reversal.

Even, you might say... A Nemesis Plot.  8)

Crane Family: A new take on the family of Niles Crane.

They're creepy and they're kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They're all together ooky,
The Niles Crane Family.

Their house is a museum
Where people come to see 'em
They really are a scream
The Niles Crane Family.

(Neat)
(Sweet)
(Petite)

So get a witches shawl on
A broomstick you can crawl on
We're gonna pay a call on
The Niles Crane Family.

They're creepy and they're kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They're all together ooky,
The Niles Crane Family!
