Oh sweet raptor jesus, that show blows. So much time is wasted on, ahem, trivial crap like having random people ask questions BUT FIRST they have to say their name and were they're from.
6 bloody questions takes, what, a third of the show? Ridiculous.
Making TV shows based on their properties COULD work for some things. A new GI Joe cartoon? Sure. A new Transformers cartoon? Yeah. A new My Little Pony show, or Little Pet Shop? That could work.
I could see Battleship making a very cool naval adventure show. Make it like GI Joe, only with a greater emphasis on naval combat. And they could mix in stuff from the new board game, like a hostage rescue mission.
I imagine Candyland would be a cartoon about life in the world of Candyland. Something sorta like the Smurfs.
Clue? I imagine it'd be a really tacky '80s-esque cartoon. The 6 guests, after solving the mystery at Mr. Boddy's mansion, group together to form some kind of crime solving syndicate. Sounds terrible, but could actually work. Professor Plum's got the booksmarts [and could be like Egon from Ghostbusters or Q from the Bond films], Col. Mustard has military knowledge/contacts and could be the weapons guy, Mr. Green could be the leader, Ms. Scarlett as the sultry spy [perhaps she was a gymnast and/or actress, so she'd be good for infiltration/disguise work], Mrs. Peacock could be Mr. Green's wife and second-in-command, and Mrs. White could be like the team's Alfred.
Or maybe I'm just WAY overthinking this. I like Clue.
