I always tend to find those characters in television that maybe aren’t the center of attention–or at least they aren’t the #1 main character–that completely captivate me, and make me want to see more. So in this week’s Fandom 5, I’m tipping my hat to those characters, with 5 spinoff series that I’d love to see become a real thing. Just a warning,
1. A Jesse Pinkman Spin-Off
[since I myself recently just watched Breaking Bad for the first time, I feel it’s only fair I offer a spoiler alert for anyone currently watching BrBa for the first time]
This was the last image we saw of Jesse Pinkman, his exhuberant escape. I personally adhere to the Aaron Paul headcanon, saying that Jesse is a carpenter in Alaska, but I know there are a lot of people that say that Jesse didn’t get far before getting picked up by the cops. Part of me doesn’t want to see a Jesse Pinkman spin-off ever. That would give us a definitive answer on what happened, and frankly, if there’s a spin-off, it means that Jesse is most definitely not living a sober, safe, peaceful life as an Alaskan carpenter. So maybe I don’t want this…maybe he can just appear on Better Call Saul…
2. A Spin-Off About Rose Tyler and “The Other Doctor”
I’d love to see a show focusing on the crazy adventures that these two have, because you know that even though this Doctor isn’t a proper Time Lord that Rose and “the Doctor” are absolutely having insane adventures in the alternate universe. Also, I just need more Rose and Ten in my life, let’s be honest.
3. An Actual Ghostfacers Show
We got a taste of a Ghostfacers show with the webseries, but I’d love to see an actual, real TV show following the Ghostfacers. Because, you know, they totally make up from their last episode, grab their EVP monitors, and are back at it. Let me have my dream.
4. Wayward Daughters
Ever since Supernatural introduced awesome women characters like Sheriff Jody, Sheriff Donna, Claire Novak, and Krissy Chambers, Alex/Annie/Alexis/Ann, I’ve wanted to see a show focusing on just them. They just need to be their own weird, bizarre little family that loves each other and hunts monsters. Search Wayward Daughters on Tumblr, and you’ll see some great ideas for this show–so I’m not alone in wanting this show. And, I mean, since Bloodlines didn’t work out, The CW is in the market for a new Supernatural spin-off. There you go, CW, I just gave you two. You’re welcome.
5. A Spin-Off On the Governor and Woodbury
You guys, the Governor was THE GREATEST villain ever. I was so glad when he died, you know, because screw him for what he did to Hershel, but OH MY WORD I was so bummed that such a formidable foe was gone. I’d love to see a spin-off that was focused on the Governor and his rise to power within Woodbury. It might have to be a mini-series since the Governor isn’t the most likable guy out there, but still, I just want more Governor in my life. He’s too deliciously evil.
