Film Quizzes: TV Show Adaptations

With films like Fargo, Silence of the Lambs, Friday Night Lights and Psycho proving such a success in TV adaptations, I thought I’d do a quiz that celebrates the reverse. Below are six films in chronological order that were inspired by TV shows. I’m always interested in how you do, so please feel to volunteer you score and your thought on any of the films.

  1. The nice thing about living in Chicago is being able to go to a lot of the places where you see the scenes in the movies. For “The Untouchables,” I’ve taken people to the stairs where the shoot out in the train station took place. I’ve also walked them across the street where The Untouchables go to make their first bust–which, by the way, is also where Jim Gordon “died” saving Harvey Dent, and where Batman flipped the truck The Joker was driving. Oh, and the outside of the toy store in “Home Alone 2”.

    • I didn’t mind the film, but then I wasn’t as thrilled with the third series as the previous two. Still a great show though.There’ll be second one coming out at the end of the year.
