It seems like every other ...

Question: It seems like every other movie I see advertised is based on a TV show, like The Dukes of Hazzard. But what about the other way around? I know there was a series based on My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but what other TV series have been based on a movie, and were any of them good?


Answer: There have been a handful of top-notch TV shows based on movies. The flop Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) was revived as Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003); Robert Altman's acerbic M*A*S*H* (1970) became the long-running M*A*S*H (1972-1983); Neil Simon  Read Full Article

I had a huge crush on Edward ...

Question: I had a huge crush on Edward Mulhare before he was on Knight Rider, going way back to The Ghost & Mrs. Muir. My question is: How did Captain Gregg die in order to become a ghost? Thank you for your help.

As if that weren't enough to make him a grumpy spirit, his death was reported as a suicide, which set him up to be none too welcoming to his greedy nephew's (Charles Nelson Reilly) prospective tenants in contemporary times.

Premise: A widow and her two kids move into a New England cottage haunted by the ghost of a sea captain, who is at first resentful of his home's new boarders. Both NBC and ABC carried the series for one year---and then canceled it. But Hope Lange, who played Mrs. Muir, emerged from the experience a winner: She won the Emmy as Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series both seasons. The show was based on the 1947 Rex Harrison-Gene Tierney movie, which was adapted from the R.A. Dick novel.
