'The Notebook', Nicholas Sparks' best selling novel turned movie is considered one of the most romantic movies of all time, and made stars out of their Candian leads, Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling. Now, the CW TV network wants to take the beloved 2004 film and turn it into a TV series. They have yet not confirmed details, and have not said if it would be based on the young or older characters. How do you feel about this?

For some reason, just because a movie is wonderful, it does not mean that a TV show based on that movie will work. However, it is done time and time again. For every successful movie to TV series adaption, like 'M*A*S*H' or 'Fargo', there are more failures. How many of these terrible TV shows based on great movies do you agree should have been

Sometimes it's the other way around. A TV series is a success, so the powers-that-be feel it would make a great movie. Some succeed, like 'The Fugitive' or 'Star Trek', but some fail miserably. How many of these failures do you feel they should have never made into a movie?
