We all have those favorite shows that critics raved about and had action, suspense, the whole shebang. But for some reason, networks cancelled said shows due to “lack of ratings”, regardless of the fan base that was growing and growing. It happened with notable cult classic show Firefly, whose fan base garnered an amazing film, and it happened with Family Guy, whose fan base bought up those DVDs like candy forcing FOX to bring back the show.
Not all shows are that lucky though. Firefly also has a comic book series courtesy of Dark Horse comics, and other shows that have been cancelled that have comic book continuations include Charmed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, & Angel and Faith.

Ben Affleck broke on the scene with an adaptation of Lehan’s best-selling Gone Baby Gone. The two plan to collaborate again on a feature-length version of the author’s book Live By Night. And now Lehane’s locking up another powerful … Continue reading Leonardo DiCaprio Wants Dennis Lehane To Pen Travis McGee
By: Kristy Puchko The buddy cop comedy is a tried and true formula where you pair two polar opposites as partners then watch the sparks fly as they save the day and explode at each other. (Riggs!) But the newly greenlit comedy Let’s Be Cops offers a new twist on this time-tested narrative, providing two best-bud protagonists who aren’t actually policemen. They are just pretending to be cops … Continue reading Damon Wayans Jr And Jake Johnson To Front Comedy Caper Let’s Be Cops
By: Eddie Makuch The United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) has refused to allow Microsoft to renew its Killer Instinct trademark. In a government filing, the office said it would not allow it due to the possibility of confusion with Fox‘s since-ended television series Killer Instinct. “In the present case, applicant’s mark is Killer Instinct and registrant’s mark is Killer Instinct. Thus, the marks … Continue reading Microsoft denied Killer Instinct trademark renewal
By: Eric Eisenberg One of my favorite scenes in Doug Liman’s 1999 dark comedy Go (a movie that I highly recommend) features characters played by Timothy Olyphant and Katie Holmes sitting together in a diner and having a friendly conversation about the daily funnies. Olyphant begins to talk about his hatred for the comic strip The Family Circus, saying, “You sit down and read your … Continue reading The Family Circus Movie Moves Forward With A Pair Of Writers
