OK, maybe the '80s got it started with Dragnet, but we really have the '90s to blame for the plague of Hollywood remakes of old TV shows. If it was on the Nick at Nite lineup, you can bet some producer was trying to convince Judge Reinhold or Kelly McGillis that it would be a perfect family-friendly comeback vehicle. Can you endure the awful memories long enough to remember these eight '90s movies based on much earlier TV sources?

Question: who's got three thumbs and wants more Trivial Eye? Answer: you after a grotesquely botched surgery.

And most of these movies were horrible. Mission Impossible did well, The Fugitive did well, The Bradys...I have no idea but they felt they needed to make what, two more sequels?

8 for 8. What, no Wild Wild West? That was a bigger travesty than the Avengers...

I have to be honest, I still enjoy "The Avengers" movie.
It has great banter between the two main characters.

Mission Impossible was a huge let-down for me as a fan of the series.

Jim Phelps would _not_ have gone bad. Period. But they had to do something so short-stuff Cruise' character wouldn't be outshown by a 'real' hero.

Look upon my Avatar, ye whiny, and despair!

Sometimes it can be surprising who joins the bad guys.

As though anyone would have ever expected Walter White to Break Bad, right?

Sometimes life just happens, you know?
