Feature and Follow Friday: Netflix This

Q: What book/series do you think would make a better TV show than a movie?

Let's face it, some series beat the movie. Take Pride and Prejudice for example, the British TV series stayed true to the book from beginning to end. You could almost follow through the pages along with the screen. Whereas the movie can make any non-reader fail their English Quiz.






Personally, I would love to see The Infernal Devices on the television screen. Steampunk is starting to become more popular every day, and Cassandra Clare's plotline is superb.  A love triangle, a Mystique-like female character, adrenaline fights, betrayal, London!! NBC should be considering this right now.


While we are on the topic of TV/Book adaptations, has anyone seeing Lauren Oliver's Delirium pilot?

    1. I know, Emma Roberts would've done a good job.

  2. Nice! Didn't hear that Delirium didn't make it as a show! Remember hearing that a pilot was airing, but it didn't get a show? That's harsh on the fans man! And I never did read that one.

  4. I didn't see the Delirium pilot, but I heard it was pretty bad. Too bad, I would have like to have seeing the series as a TV show.

  6. I saw the Delirium pilot and thought it was awesome! They so should have continued it. Although, I admit I've only gotten 120 pages into the book and am really bored.lol
    The Infernal Devices would be an interesting tv show. Great pick!
    Thanks for stopping by the blog!

  7. Clockwork Angel would make for a great TV show, even if I didn't love the later books as much as the first...
    Thanks for stopping by earlier :)

  9. LOL. I agree with you about P&P. Did you notice in the Keira Knightly version, they had the actors saying their lines so fast they were practically talking on top of one another? And it was still a 2 1/2 hour film. I've read The Mortal Instruments, but haven't started Infernal Devices yet, though I intend to. Just not sure when. I wasn't overly impressed with the City of Bones film, so perhaps that one would have been better as a series as well. Following you via Bloglovin'. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great weekend! :D

  12. Hi, I'm a new Bloglovin' follower and it's my first time participating in FF. The Infernal Devices would be really good to see on TV. I saw the Delirium pilot and I thought it was pretty good but it just felt so rushed trying to cram everything into a 40 minute episode. If they spread it out it could be really good, though.
