This week's theme from Wandering Through the Shelves are films that were based on their smaller screen counter parts. This was really hard to narrow down. A lot of children's shows came to mind, like Rugrats or Doug. Shows that were a bit before my time like 21 Jump Street and Dukes of Hazzard came to mind too. I decided to stick with movies based on shows that I watched quite a bit.
1) X-Files: The Movie (Or Fight the Future depending on when you bought your DVD)
My dad and I watched a lot of TV together (we also watched Highlander, which I used a few months ago) X-Files was one of our favorites. I was shipping Molder and Scully before I even knew when shipping was. I remember being so pissed that they didn't kiss when we saw this in theaters.
2) Jackass: The Movie (and sequels)
So the show and the movies it spawned are all gross and outrageous but I loved how much people hated it. This bothered so many simply because it existed. The reaction it all provoked was hilarious. I was happy to see a less censored movie versions, even if it meant seeing Steve-o stick things up his ass on the big screen.
3) South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
I started watching this show in it's first season, when I was all of 11 or 12. My dad justified letting me watch it because I learned a decent lesson at the end of each episode, and never repeated the swear words. (in front of him) I'll also never forget his face when he took me to see this in theaters and the Uncle Fucker song came on. He literally groaned and shrunk in his seat. He says that's still one of his most embarrassing parental moments.
