The 10 Worst TV Shows Inspired By Movies

4. Police Academy: The Series (1997-1998)

Well after the Police Academy movies gave America a chuckle in the '80s, a live-action series based on the property was launched in the late ‘90s with horrifying results. Aside from Michael Winslow (the guy who could make sound effects with his voice) none of the original cast bothered to show up for this train wreck. We’re not saying the original movies were high art, but this show managed to make the dreadful direct-to-video sequels look like the lovechild of Citizen Kane and Casablanca in comparison.

Severely sterilized for television, this series sapped away the charm of the original movie and went for plots and laughs that were the lowest of the low brow. The first Police Academy movie is the type of guilty pleasure that everyone secretly enjoys; however, we can’t imagine anyone pulling this series out to watch on a rainy day.
