François Truffaut once said that "Film lovers are sick people." He may have been on to something.

Shot/Reverse Shot: Episode 30 - Top Ten TV Adaptations
Following some disgruntled notes from our executives ("executives" being a euphemism for the incessant, self-critical nattering that constantly runs in our heads) Joe and I have decided to make a few changes to the podcast. From now on, we're not going to be doing Top 10's at the end of every episode since, though they are fun and easy to do, they tend to take up a lot of time - in the case of the Childhood episode taking up half the podcast - and would probably function better as standalone or supplementary episodes.
In this spirit of massive retooling, this episode finds us doing a Top 10 entirely about TV Adaptations, by which we mean TV shows that have been turned into films, films that have been turned into TV shows, and even one instance of a not very good TV show being turned into a great TV show. There are tangents galore, as is our custom, but as a first step towards streamlining the show it works pretty well.
As always, you can stream the podcast using the link above, or preferably (from our point of view) you can subscribe using iTunes. If you choose the latter, please rate it and leave a review because it helps us to get more listeners, and also gives us something else to obsess over. Speaking of which, you can also Like us on Facebook, assuming that you do.
