Buffy the series was SO much better than the movie. They didn't get Joss Whedon's humor when they made that movie.

Happy TT!

Happy Days = American Graffiti, right? (Thanks for visiting my TT)

Did you see the La Femme Nikita series? This was the best series I ever saw come out. We never missed one. I need to see if I can find it on DVD.

I can't count the number of times I watched the movie version of "Fame" when it hit cable in the early 80s. I was also a fan of the TV show as well.

I was curious about two things on your list.

I know that the show "Bewitched" inspired the movie version starring Nicole Kidman. What movie was the show based on?

I have the same question about "Happy Days". Since it was similar to "American Graffiti", are you counting that as an adaptation?

I presume bewitched was based on "I Married A Witch" with Frederic March. Many years later they based a movie on the TV show, wasting the talent of Nicole Kidman, and it was awful!

i think i 'met' all of these via the TV show. i've actually seen less than half of the original movies.

i think i've owed you several visits since NaNo began in November. I dropped a lot of the balls I was juggling about then and am just now starting to gather them up again.

happy TT

Hi in a hurry soI'll quickly answer the Bewitched question...it was inspired by a crazy movie called Bell , book and Candle starring Kim Novak and James Stewart, 1958.

Happy Days was an offshoot of American Graffiti.
