    Friday OT - Best/Worst Spinoff Series

    CycloneRulzzz provided another Friday OT thread idea - thanks, Rulzzz!

    What are the best and worst spin-off series? Were the spin-offs better than the originals? Were the originals worthy of a spin-off?

    I would say that currently, the best spin-off "series" was the Tenacious D miniseries, which spun off of the excellent Mr. Show. I am excited to see what Odenkirk can do in "Better Call Saul."

    Are they still doing Saul? I noticed he is on Fargo right now.

    That was the last I heard - I sure hope so. Jonathan Banks is also currently playing Hickey on Community, and they don't seem to be wrapping up that character.

    Re: Friday OT - Best/Worst Spinoff Series

    Do Saved by the Bell and The Simpsons count as spin offs? Saved by the Bell from Good Morning, Miss Bliss and The Simpsons from The Tracy Ullman Show? Also The Colbert Report from The Daily Show.

    Those are all three ones I totally would have forgotten, but I think they all count for sure.

    I like him on Community. Pretty funny how they use him.

    Re: Friday OT - Best/Worst Spinoff Series

    "After M*A*S*H" was bad. Agree that Frasier was one of the better spin-offs.

    I loved him and David Cross in the D&D episode. Admittedly, I'll probably love David Cross in whatever, but they were a good pairing.

    CycloneFanatic, the spin-off from CycloneReport, was good.

    Caprica was bad, especially when compared to BSG. But I wouldn't put it in the worst spin-off category.
