All we can think about when we come across “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is Sarah Michelle Gellar. We are still unsure which was greater. The show or Gellar. The show succeeded as it brought a fictional storyline, unlike all the standard I-love-him-and-he-loves-her shows. The success of Buffy led to the production of comic books, and video games and shed light on the 1992 full-length movie which held the same title.
Did you know that Sarah Michelle Gellar was initially cast to play Cordelia Chase? Apparently, the production saw Gellar as a down-to-earth kind of girl believing the role of Buffy wouldn’t suit her. They were in for a surprise.
One Tree Hill Had to Lay Down the Law With CMM
The original name of the show was "Ravens". Somewhere along the line, it changed to "One Tree Hill" named after the U2 hit which carries the same name. Chad Michael Murray insisted on playing the role of Lucas. The production thought otherwise and paired him with the role of Nathan. The show was initially supposed to be a movie but the storyline just kept on developing. The creation of a series was called for.
It has become one of the most memorable shows in show history. The main characters grasped an astonishing $100,000 per episode which wasn't very economical by the time the show reached its ninth season.
Small Wonder and the Wondergirl
In 1985, the future was predicted with the amazing robot girl named Vickey. She was fantastic, made of plastic, and was the secret adoptive girl of the family. Although it was popular mostly among the younger teens, it was aired all over the world and when you think of it, it was kind of weird although it still enjoyed some reruns during the 1990s and 2000s.
Tiffany Brissette played the role of Vickey and for that, she should be applauded. She had to memorize her lines and paint them all with a robotic accent. Talk about wonders.
Life as We Know It Was No Match for The OC
The early 2000s brought to us "Life as We Know It" based on the novel "Doing It". According to some, it was the best TV show no one ever watched. It had great potential but someone aligned it with "The OC" and scheduled the shows at the same time. How can any show compete with "The OC"?
The story covered the ups and downs in the lives of three Seattle students, with nothing more than him-and-her issues on their minds. Those few who loved the show made sure to purchase the DVD set that came out the following Christmas, knowing that "Life as we know it" wouldn't last very long.
Rags to Riches Had a Specialized Playlist
Imagine taking a 1960s music classic, altering the lyrics slightly, and integrating the song into a TV show episode. This is what was done in "Rags to Riches" which told the story of a millionaire (Joseph Bologna) who adopted five orphans. The songs that supported the storyline in each episode differed the show from all others.
"Rags to Riches" ran for just two seasons and although it had a short appearance on the screen, it manages to grasp some awards. It was s true gem on the television with a great story that could easily be reproduced today.
