Turning The Walking Dead into a movie would ruin a great series. Leave it alone!

I don't think that's a very good title. If they are really good we much perfer them as shows rather than a movie simply because they last much longer that way, and you can get more indepth with the story line of a show than you ever can with a movie. A show can go on for years where as a movie is limited to approx. 2 hours. So, if it's really good I would want more not less. Which is also why I find it crazy that movie stars think they are better than tv shows because if they are really good actors I would really like to see them all year round in shows rather than wait sooooooo long for their next movie to come out.

"Walking Dead" a movie?? I don't think so! Making it into a movie would totally ruin a great show, especially with how a lot of directors and producers are such douche-bags now. Everything has to be politically correct or have some kind of political statement with these people.
"Walking Dead" is just fine without that kind of garbage, thank you.

There's a reason Walking Dead is so good, because zombie movies are good but what does walking dead have that zombie movies dont? An never ending story, which is why the comic book was so successful

|TV Shows That Should Be Movies|
Our favorite small-screen series that seem suited for the big screen
By Michaela Sinclair
Looking back at last fall's failed futuristic television series "Terra Nova," we wonder if the show would have been better received as a big-screen film instead. After all, it was helmed by Hollywood's power producer Steven Spielberg and rumored to spend upwards of $20 million for just the two-hour pilot, so this dinosaur series certainly had the right elements to be featured in a movie house.
This season, NBC brings us "Revolution," premiering Monday, Sept. 17, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Like "Terra Nova," "Revolution" takes place in the future, 15 years after a "blackout" that forces humans to survive without electricity and technology. With such an ambitious plot, in addition to J.J. Abrams producing the series and Jon Favreau directing the pilot, "Revolution" sounds like it would make a great sci-fi blockbuster film. Both Favreau and Abrams are no strangers to blockbuster hits, having worked on the "Iron Man" franchise and "Star Trek," respectively.
Now that A-list actors are continuously making the transition back and forth from television to film and per-episode production costs rival that of indie films, it's a no-brainer that certain television series could do well on the big screen. In anticipation of the debut of "Revolution," we take a look at other upcoming shows that could succeed as movies.
"Revolution" premieres Monday, Sept. 17, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
