Tremors wasn't only a movie it was a TV show! But is that good?
I loved the movie Tremors. I love TV. They made a TV show out of Tremors. Sounds good? Well maybe.
Here's how I think the idea came about.
It probably went like this:
Executive one - Tremors 1-3 are very popular movies lets make it an hour long TV show!
Executive two - Good idea! I love ideas for TV shows that are already established!
Executive one - Fuck new ideas!
So there it is! They made a TV show about it.
But they had no budget.
They couldn't get all the surviving cast members so you only get some characters.
They couldn't get guns for Bert Gummer's gun collection, so they wrote he was bankrupt.
They couldn't have to many special effects so the monsters barely appear and when they do appear its the same shot used multiple times.
They took a fun monster fighting movie and took out the fighting and the monsters and that ain't fun!
Yup movies about killing monsters in a small town turns in to a TV show about people living in a small town who occasionally deal with monsters and monster related things.
Wow now that's must see TV!
I don't know why it only lasted one season!
Can you imagine if they did that with other movies? What about a TV show based on the movie the Seven Samurai?
Its just after the surviving samurai leave, the village goes back to normal and they harvest their grain... and that's it. Just villagers harvesting grain and making food and chatting. Maybe the one guy (Rikichi) with the dead wife starts dating again! Heck maybe he dates Shino and Manzo worries his daughter might become a full blown slut! BUT WHO CARES!
