In the era of 21st century PeakTV, many a pundit / critic has said to tv shows and episodes are “more cinematic than ever” (which is lowkey derogatory to the medium of television but that’s another thread altogether).
In December 2019, cinemas in the UK started playing episodes of Friends as part of it’s 25th anniversary (x)
The combination of these things got me wondering, what TV would you pay see to in a theatrical setting?November 12, 2020 at 11:22 pm #1203833342
First of all I would never want to watch Friends in a cinema. The pilot and season finale of Westworld S1 would be amazing.November 12, 2020 at 11:35 pm #1203833358
Most, if not all, Game of Thrones episodes would serve. Imagine watching Rains of Castamere in a packed theater for the first time….November 13, 2020 at 12:05 am #1203833389
The Walking Dead pilot, Game of Thrones Hardhome (though yes, many episodes would be good for this), and the Breaking Bad finale.November 13, 2020 at 1:04 am #1203833407
– A lot of Game of Thrones episode would be amazing to watch in a theatre screen.
– The series finale of The Americans.
– Certain episodes of Fargo, especially Season 2.
– The People V. OJ Simpson
– “Two Storms” from The Haunting of Hill House
– The Crown would be gorgeous to watch on a big screen too.November 13, 2020 at 1:17 am #1203833416
First of all I would never want to watch Friends in a cinema.
I went to a screening because of the tickets were cheap and it was sooo bad.
The quality is grainy as hell because she tried to re-adjust the ratio aspect from 4:3 to 21:9, it was like 12 year who just discovered photoshop. Then the audience just laughed at nearly every the laugh track popped up.November 13, 2020 at 3:29 am #1203833491
Any episode of The Crown but specifically Woflerton Splash and Beryl felt like they were designed to be short films. Same with The Handmaid’s Tale but specifically Offred.
Also echo the comments around Westworld s1, GoTand The Americans finale but I’d also add that The Queen’s Gambit and The Night Of would be AMAZING to watch on the big screen. Same with <i>Sharp Objects</i>.

Any episode of Penny DreadfulNovember 13, 2020 at 9:53 am #1203834238
I’d rewatch the entirety of The People V. O.J. Simpson and Fosse/Verdon as well as the first season of Big Little Lies on the big screen.November 13, 2020 at 10:10 am #1203834289
first season of Big Little Lies on the big screen.
Gosh that reveal moment at the end of the season and the moments with Jane running on the beach would be fantastic to see on screen. In fact like I said with Sharp Objects both of Vallee’s shows feel like they were designed to be on the big screen.
