10 Worst TV Spin-Offs

From 'Beverly Hill Buntz' to 'Brady Brides,' here are the creme de la crud of TV series sequels

10. 'Caprica'

Ronald D. Moore's politically informed remake of Battlestar Galactica is easily the best example of someone taking an old, somewhat maligned TV property and turning it into something that was positively canon-worthy. His follow-up to the critically praised sci-fi show, however, is Exhibit A of when it's best to leave a successful concept alone and just walk away. On paper, the idea of seeing what happened to one of the 12 colonies before the Cylon War seemed intriguing; on screen, it was simply D.O.A., with actors such as Eric Stoltz and Esai Morales gamely trying to breathe life into stock storylines about fundamentalism, virtual reality addiction and the usual Promethean handwringing. Of all the spin-offs on this list, Caprica may be the one that genuinely broke our heart.
