    Default TV SPINOFFS you'd like to see....

    Rooselvelt Franklin (70's Sesame Street) : Inner-city school kid whose antics proved a bit much for "the man" and was dropped from the show. Perhaps a show for slightly older kids
    a-la-Fat Albert would be cool. Franklin, his friends and teachers could learn and teach some things about African-American history/culture, respect and getting along with people.
    Youtube "Rooselvelt Franklin just because" to hear a sweet little song about saying NO to racism and violence that is maybe more relevant NOW than ever before...

    Villians from Sailor Moon Super : Employees of the evil forces who work in a dinky little office with outdated faxes, computers and a crappy company car. They keep trying and trying to send new monsters to fight the sailor scouts and are defeated each time. With each defeat their budget is shrunk, leading to more problems in their professional and personal lives...

    and YOURS?

    I said this back in early 2000's , its a shame that NBC couldn't convince (or have the money to) Jennifer Aniston to do a spin-off with Matt LeBlanc. If no one remembers as FRIENDS was ending the cast would be moving on except LeBlanc who signed on at the last minute. NBC wanted one of the stars and as Aniston and Cox had film careers and Perry , Kudrow and Swimmer seemed to want to do other things. So it left the character of Joey.

    But it would have been unique had Aniston signed on to play the role of Rachel. So my pitch...



    - In the series finale of Friends , Rachel turns down Ross for the final time. Detailing that they had their chance and should accept it. But she's not fully into being a couple with Joey yet and debates if he's ready to have a relationship involving a kid moving forward. She tells him she and her child will live there with him in New York.


    THE PREMISE

    - The series starts LeBlanc who debates how to handle his feelings for Rachel and being a father type figure as her daughter is now 1 or 2 years old. Joey in the pilot learns he has a new acting job as a talk show host after goofing around with food to get laughs from kids. Anyhow the show films in New Jersey and Rachel faces a decision on moving with him to New Jersey and working from home for her job.


    - In needing a place Joey reveals he actually owns a house in Jersey to the shock of Rachel. His mother left it to him and he moves back. Its there we learn his sister lives across the street with her son. The entire series is about them settling in and adjusting to a new situation with work , themselves and family. (Joey's sister drives Rachel insane at times ).


    - The cast would stay the same of Joey's sister and son worked in the series. I wouldn't change them. I would add as a funny nod to the past cast Peter Scolari as a producer who questions Joey mentally for what he says or does on the show . (much to his shock the show gets even more popular the more Joey screws up ala Tim Taylor) . Rachel has an assistant I'd add who is almost like a Monica for her to hang out with as well.


    - Both would share the screen time with plots and stories.

    Since it seems alright to mention animated spin-offs...

    The Justice Friends - this will always be my favorite segment from Dexter's Laboratory, and a spin-off for Major Glory & his colleagues/roommates would be welcome (at least for me, that is). The creators could give certain characters a chance in the spotlight and show why they're deserving to be members of the Justice Friends, while throwing in their trademark comic relief along the way.

    A Secret Warriors spinoff of Agents of SHIELD, starring Quake.

    A Game of Thrones spinoff about Arya and her adventures as an explorer

    A "next generation" sequel series to Xena: Warrior Princess

    A "next generation" sequel series to Buffy the Vampire Slayer (possibly already in development)

    I just wish Wayward Daughters (Supernatural spin-off) had been picked up.

    But i also wouldn't mind seeing a continuation of Farscape, with Little Dargo all grown up.

    Speaking of Cartoon Network spinoffs, would have loved a Scotsman (Samurai Jack) series.

    Then give spin-off AWSM! their own show!

    Married with Children did two (unless there were more) episodes that doubled as backdoor pilots [edit: not counting the one with the Verduccis that became Top of the Heap] that were never picked up. The one with Steve and a young Eric Dane seemed meh, but the one titled "Enemies" seemed like it could have lasted a few seasons. Or just give Griff his own show after the parent show ended.

    I really wanted a second Hercules spinoff starring Autolycus and Salmoneus.

    I mentioned it before in regards to Supernatural, but Season 9's "Slumber Party" seemed like a backdoor pilot to me. Charlie and Dorothy (from the Wizard of Oz) going on adventures.

    A lot of people disliked Torchwood: Miracle Day, but the ending had me wanting to see a spinoff starring Rex Matheson.

    Saw that Atomic Puppet show on Netflix. And it wasnt bad imo. Wouldnt minx them taking a crack at Justice friends. Though i bet sum uptight person would complain about the stereotypical names like Ya-Mon

    Or even one with Princess Mira - https://samuraijack.fandom.com/wiki/Princess_Mira

    Or how about a spin-off with X-49 - https://samuraijack.fandom.com/wiki/X-49

    Awesome! Yeah, that's a great idea. Following the events of Members Only, the members of AWSM! are forced to search for & recruit female counterparts for their squad. Who'll be the lucky ladies that'll bring some sense & sensibility to this all-male super-team? Hilarity ensues.

    Considering the attempts that have not panned out, I always wondered why they never took a run at a series based on Bobby and Rufus being younger men. Probably wouldn't amount to anything, but that part of the bigger picture could actually be interesting.

    Never mind that there is a "Supernatural" universe anthology series that is just waiting to happen. Do a set of connected miniseries that could take place present/past/future. The "Wayward Daughters" and "Bobby/Rufus" ideas could easily fit into a set of anthology seasons.

    Seems like that could be a gimme for the network.

    Apparently Katie Cassidy has pitched a Birds of Prey spin-off to the CW. I'd be a hell of a lot more interested in that than the trainwreck movie WB's currently making.
