TV Spin-Offs


Margie: Edna, remember when we used to love the variety of shows on TV? Nowadays, if people love a show, there is sure to be a spin-off. Just look at NCIS and all those CSI shows. I hear Criminal Minds is going to spin-off too.

Edna: Well now, sometimes spin-off shows can be a good thing. I used to love that Laverne and Shirley, and that was a spin-off from Happy Days. And what about Maude? That was a spin-off from All in the Family.

Unfortunately, it seems like the quality of the spin-off shows is not what it used to be. I think it's like when you make a clone of something: a copy is almost never going to be as good as the original.

Margie: For once, sister, you may be right. That's why I think it's time for me to have a spin-off of the basement. See, this is called Margie and Edna's and I want just a Margie one.

How do you like that? This one will be better than the original.

Edna: Pfft. Better than the original, you say? You're welcome to try, but I'm betting all you'll come up with is the blogging equivalent of Joanie Loves Chachi.

Margie: Edna, I didn't like them and I don't like you. When Margie's Nekkid Men blog opens don't even show your face over there.

Margie's Manly Men? Margie's Basement Men? I've got to go think about this.

Edna: Oh good grief, that's what you want a new blog for? To fill it up with nekkid men? Well go on ahead, then. At least that way you'll keep that smuttiness off of THIS blog.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Margie.

Margie: Edna, would you like to exchange links?

How about:

"Locked in the basement with Margie"


"Madge's Manhole"

or maybe-

"Musty, Lusty and Mine"

or god forbid-

"The Root Cellar"

Feel free to censor any of these.

In fact, please censor them.

Edna: Grampy and Mr. Barry Terocious, all I can say is for shame on the both of you!

Margie and Edna said...

Margie: Here I thought there were no smart men in the world and the 2 smartest leave comments here today.
Well, one female idiot left a comment too.
Thank you, gentlemen, for the wonderful ideas. I think we could all get rich!

Jane, thank you for the friend request on Facebook. I felt so warm inside when I seen that, lol! I know I probably sound like a nut!

Poor Kelsey Grammer--each of his spin-offs seems worse than the last. Maybe you could put him in your basement.

I am all for Margie's Men and just think the money you can make off a blog like that. You could use little thumbnail teasers and make everyone pay a dollar to see the real thing up close and personal - it would be like a virtual strip show. "The Margiedales" :D

I think TV spinoffs and all that comes to mind is "After MASH", and just how awful that program was.
