The "Fall" of 1990: 80s Movies Murdered by TV
I'm not sure if there was a writers strike in 1990 or if TV producers decided to just take a vacation from creativity for the fall schedule. Five, yes that's 5 (or "cinco" in Spanish,) FIVE television series based directly from feature films made their debuts in the fall of 1990.
take a chain saw to a character that made $70 million at the box office, would they? WHAT??!! Well, even if the writers also changed Ferris' sister Jeanie into a younger sister instead of an older one like in the movie, the casting director made a prolific choice and we got a young Jennifer Anniston...for 13 episodes. The sequel that should've happened...Ferris 2: Rooney's Revenge.
one of Leo's early roles. The sequel that should've happened...Parenthood: The Next Generation. If you still don't want a sequel, next time just wait 21 years until the original film is completely completely off the radar. (53 episodes produced and still counting versus 12...you do the math.)
a future wildcat bus driver that just couldn't keep the show above 55 MPH and you have an explosion at episode 8 of 12. Sorry, Sandy, just wasn't your time. Sequel that should've happened...Working Girl 2: Moving Up.
