Hypothetical: You get sucked into your TV...

I know that Pleasantville did this concept (great movie, by the way), but here goes:


If you were going to get sucked into your TV and had to live the rest of your life inside the fictional world created by a TV show, what show would you pick?


Now consider the same thing for a movie, either at the theater or on TV. What movie world would you inhabit for the rest of your life?

As a third request, which of the above two would be your top choice?


And please remember, if you pick a porn movie you're going to shoot yourself within six months of hearing nothing but bad dialogue. Try to pick a "real" movie.

In terms of TV, I might go live in the world of Bonanza. Those guys really had a pretty good life, other than the occasional gunshot wound.

As for the movies...probably Time Bandits. That'd be cool.

Sure, but I'd probably die satisfied.

I've always wanted to be a Tenenbaum... The Royal Tenenbaums

Also, when Vito was the active Don in The Godfather. Good, family fun then.

True, but you would get shot at least fifty times a year.

TV show: Gilligan's Island. Not too much responsibility. A shot a Ginger or Mary Ann. Plus I can't think of anything better.

Movie: Ground Hog Day, as the Bill Murray character. I find the prospect of living each day without any consequences beyond that day to be quite attractive. Plus all the free time to pursue whatever interests I wanted.

The movie would definitely be my top choice.

One thing always bothered me about Bonanza though. They used 6 shoters that appeared to use cartridges and they could shoot forever. The show is set just before the Civil War and cartridges weren't available till 1873. You won't see any cartridges in their gunbelts though. Can anybody explain this?

Yeah, there are a few things in that show like that. Seriously though, almost every episode, someone gets the "colt treatment." Do the math, it would be your turn to take a bullet at least once a week. You better be wearing a bullet proof vest when the TV vortex sucks you in.

TV Show: Star Trek: Deep Space 9. I always preferred the DS9 setting and characters to any other Trek series. Being on the Enterprise would be far too dangerous. There's all that cool stuff on DS9's promenade to check out, plus they have holosuites, which are just like the holodeck, except you can do NAUGHTY stuff in 'em.

Movie: Star Wars. Duh. I'm not sure whether I'd like to be Imperial, Rebel, or independent. Ideally I'd grow up in the outer rim, get drafted into the Imperial starfleet, serve a few years, get Darth Vader's autograph, and then defect to the Rebel Alliance. After we beat the snot out of the Imperials, maybe I'll go independent and work for a Hutt or something. It also might be kind of cool to be a Tusken Raider or a Jawa.

Yeah, I'll bet Little Joe has killed 16 guys, all justifiable. And he can whip anybody, even huge guys.
