Further proving that Hollywood has no ideas left, it seems that Sony Sony Pictures Animalation (see what I did there) has purchased the movie rights to the 80s television show Manimal (imdb.com).

I know I'm not supposed to judge before there is even a trailer, but this has 'spectacular train wreck' written all over it. I just hope this means that we get to see a big screen adaptation of Automan (imdb.com)

They're just hopping on the True Blood Shifters bandwagon.

For that Automan reference you become my favorite poster on The W.

MANIMAL??? Really????? Letterman used that as a one word punchline for years it was so bad.

My 'Manimal' story: Watching it on TV in the dorm (I think someone in the room had a crush on the lead actress, who was in that Queen-soundtracked version of Flash Gordon.) Commercial break, and here's a brief message from our sponsor --

"Parts of 'Manimal' are brought to you by... Burger King!"

Yeah, that still makes me giggle...

I'm sure he believes what he's saying but the minute people start tuning out because they're sick of the disaster images, they'll tone back. As long as people tune in to see it, they're going to keep showing them over and over again.
