Episode #44 – When TV Turns into Movies

Typically whenever a television show is canceled, we tend to think that’s the end for it, but more and more we see that isn’t necessarily the case. It isn’t uncommon for a show to have a semblance of a second life as a movie. This usually comes in two varieties: sometimes a show just gets a reimagined adaptation as a movie, and other times we see a show get a movie to tie up some loose ends left behind from the series or to just continue the adventures. What is it like seeing something that works so well in its original form as a tv series transition and transform itself into a film?  The panel looks at tv shows that become movies.
