Top Ten TV Show Mash-Ups: 2014 edition

Since there’s no punctuation to speak of on my digital video recorder’s list of shows, and titles are often shortened or missing an article, some bizarre combinations can be found with careful reading. My wife pointed this out to me a few years ago, and I’ve kept a list of the best mash-up titles ever since. Here are some good examples, along with what I image the resulting show would be like:

10. Breaking Bad Black List    

A teacher with cancer decides to support his family by finding and bringing in the 100 criminals with the biggest dead-or-alive rewards…

9. Game of Flash    

I guess it would have even MORE nudity?

8. Walking Dead American Ninja Warrior

Okay, NOW we may have reached Peak Zombie.

7. Person of Interest Rick & Morty

A crime-solving A.I. would fit right in on that show.

6. Sons of Silicon Valley

A dangerous gang of computer programmers… come to think of it that sounds interesting.

5. How to Get Away With Hell On Wheels

Turns out the answer is a lot of politics, backed by a lot of gunslingers.

4. The 100 Hannibal

That’s a LOT of long pig.

3. True Detective Community

Have you found the Yellow Sign?

2. Law and Order: Gotham

The people are represented by the police who investigate crimes, the attorneys who prosecute them, and a 10-year-old-boy who will grow up to be the goddam Batman.

1. Agents of Forever

Actually, this sounds cool. Even with no description, I’d watch this show.

  1. I like “Agents of Forever.” Sounds like it ought to be a campaign setting for Kevin Kulp’s “Time Watch” game.
