TWQ: Economy TV Programmes

Following the big response I had with 'Economy Flims' two weeks ago, TWQ (The Weekend Question) follows up with a similar view of tv programmes.

Can you list some titles of tv programmes that would be so called if their budget was extremely limited? List as many as you can.

My answers are:

Happy Hour (for Happy Days)
Bar Trek
Battlebus Galactica
Half A Man

Now it's over to you...

But before you go...

The wonderful Nina (SFGirl) has given me this latest Award.

It's smiles all round! Thanks, Nina! People get these for being clever, charming, fun, hilarious, ridiculous and entertaining. I give this Award to: Titania Starlight , Table For Five,
Are We There Yet? (Linda) and Empress Bee

Plus Michele sent me.

Hmmm - how about:
The Brady Trio
It aint half foggy mum )(set in London)
Could you downsize Steptoe and Son any more than it was? I suppose you could have left out the horse...

kenju said...

How about Lifestyles of the Poor and Homeless?

Michele says hi!

Lavender said...

Erm, Im stumped again! How pathetic is that? LOL Oh well, will have to look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with....though I think Id make it a point to see Battlebus Galactica!

Karen said...

I'm stumped too. How about "Hero." "OK Race" and "Little Brother." ?

Michele sent me. Hope you're having a great day.

gautami tripathy said...

Well, I can't really answer that. Being in India and all that.

I am already a member of Shelfari. Though I am not very active there. I will add you too.

Michele sent me tell you so.

MissMeliss said...

Gilmore Girl (singular)
This Old Studio (instead of This Old House)
CSI: North Pole (the entire show would take place in an igloo set, and all deaths would be due to polar bears, wolves, or frostbite.)
Found! A plane crashes on an Island that turns out to be a secluded Hawaiian beach. Survivors are rescued by a fleet of taxis.

Linda said...

Thank you so much, Captain, for the award! I was so busy having fun with the TV shows that I didn't even scroll down far enough to see it!

I am truly honored!

Oh no. I have no idea. :P

Bilbo said...

Another one:

The Stale Prince of Bel Air.

And I thought margalit's "Trauma" (combining all soap operas) and missmeliss's "CSI: North Pole" and "Found" were hysterical for their explanations! Bilbo

gautami tripathy said...

Michele sent me back to congratulate you on your award. You deserve it.

Russ said...

How about a Discovery Channel show called Not so Dangerous Catch-n-Release. A couple of beer drinking buddies fishing for Crawfish in the gutters of New Orleans...
