It happens more than you think: you watch a great movie only to find out months (or years) later that it was based off an old TV show that you now have to go watch. Alternatively, you go see a movie based on a TV show you really love, only to be disappointed at the crappy shlock you were fed under the guise of characters you love. Well, J & Q are sick of the runaround. It’s time, once and for all, to dive in and let you know what are the Top 5 TV-to-Movie Adaptations of All Time so you don’t have to waste your hours on Charlie’s Angels or The Last Airbender or The Dukes of Hazard or X-Files: I Want to Believe or… get it, there are a lot of shitty ones out there.

Let Q & J provide a map to the best movies based on TV shows for you, so you can head straight for Star Trek and Mission: Impossible country and avoid It’s Pat and The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Wild Wild West and Alvin and the Chipmunks and….Jesus, the shit just keeps on coming. Don’t worry, we aren’t going to talk TV and not have a #JennaJabber, highlighting the wonderful Jenna von Oÿ! So settle in, grab your popcorn, and power up that remote, we’re headed into very tested waters and trying to avoid the debris.
