    Default Smaller Franchises you're a fan of?

    The conversation's full of Marvel, DC, Star Wars, Star Trek, and other multi-billion dollar franchises these days - but what smaller franchises do you like? Series that have more made-for-tv movies and direct-to-videos than theatrical releases, things people tend to forget even exist until you bring it up. For instance I've recently been feeling the Starship Troopers franchise since watching most of the movies a couple days ago. Most people remember the theatrical movie, but there's been two other live action films and a couple animated ones too, plus a cartoon series. I haven't seen the series or the latest animated movie, but everything else was pretty fun to watch.

    Another example, I'm a longtime fan of the Tremors series. Again, everyone remembers the first movie with Kevin Bacon, but there's been five sequels since then and a one season TV show. I have all of them on DVD and have watched them all multiple times (except the series, I should watch that again soon). No animation yet, which is a shame because an animated Tremors movie would be amazing.

    Anyone else a fan of one of these franchises? Or do you like another franchise that's not as big as the Disney or WB backed stuff?


    (For reference, even though Nightmare on Elm Street might be a small franchise when compared to say Harry Potter, in its genre it is a big franchise with a ton of films in theaters over the decades; on the other hand Puppet Master is a pretty niche property in comparison and yet there's like a dozen movies cranked out most of which have never been on the silver screen, so I'd call it a franchise that's fairly small budgeted and fairly small fanbase despite a lot of content.)

    Does Law & Order count as a small franchise?
