Did you watch, Ice Cube starrer, Are We There Yet? and think “man, this would be great as a series that I could watch every week!” Well if so, someone was listening, as The Hollywood Reporter is…umm… reporting that Terry Crews (the dad from “Everybody Hates Chris”)  has been signed up to star in a television series based off it. Ice Cube will be on board as producer and TBS has ordered ten episodes, with a possible ninety more on the horizon.

I’m really not sure what this is going to cover, mainly because I’ve never seen the 2005 travesty or its apparently even worse sequel, Are We Done Yet? Checking on the box office figures though, they made over $150 million between them. So many talks, and quality walks in the case of just about anything. Now, if a commenter knows better than I, then please chime in, but isn’t the premise of the film that their stuck in a car? So is that what will follow for a hundred episodes? Is this really what TV has become? Way to many questions for what was undoubtedly a snap decision by whatever TV guy keeps renewing ‘America’s Next Top Anorexic’ and ‘Dancing With The Barely Famous People’.

I feel like I’m being overly negative, so I’ll look for a positive in this story now. Maybe when I’m really, really drunk I’ll stumble upon this and make some good jokes about how it’s not done yet. Or maybe I’ll be in an accident and my brain damage is to such an extent, that I watch this every week, and get endless joy out of how troublesome family life can be.

That is literally the best I can do so take it or leave it. Also be aware to avoid your TV in June 2010 when this flies toward your eyes without restraint.

What do you think? What other bad films could become shows?
