Spinning Off

I believe we have reached a new generation of laziness in childrens' programming.

Now, I have no problem with spin-off series as long as they're handled gracefully, but there is currently a show on the Disney Channel called "Timmy Time"

Timmy Time is a spin-off of Shaun the Sheep

Which is a spin-off of Wallace and Gromit

I'm not positive, but I'm thinkin' that it miiiight be a bit of a stretch at this point...

I haven't actually seen Timmy Time, so I don't actually know if it's any good or not, so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt because both Wallace and Gromit AND Shaun the Sheep are awesome. I was just a little bewildered by the fact that it's a spin-off of a spin-off... Don't know how much further you can go before it starts getting ridiculous.

I LOVE Kenan and Kel! Also Wallace and Gromit, but not spin-off so much. (*shrugs*) They can be good, they can be awful, or they can just be blah. I wasn't really keen on "Rugrats: All Growed Up," for instance. It was cool as a one-time gimick, you know, see them all as teenagers. But not on a regular basis, methinks.

Had to re-comment just for that.
