End of year question: Can a spin-off be better than the original?

It’s the time of year when we tend to take stock of what we’ve accomplished and what we want to do better next year. Can next year be better than this year? I’m choosing to answer that with an analogy… Can the spin-off be better than the original? Here are the top 3 answers why it’s a resounding yes!

(1) Boston Legal wins vs. The Practice

(2) Frasier wins vs. Cheers

(3) Star Trek the Next Generation wins vs. Star Trek

So in an anticipatory celebration of the new year, the answer is a resounding YES, the new year can be better than the last. Here’s hoping!

How do you think next year will turn out?
