Canceled Too Soon #168 - Tremors: The Series (2003)


The cult monster movie classic TREMORS spawned five straight-to-video sequels and, over a decade later, its own SYFY tv series! But how the heck do you turn a movie about folks stranded in the desert with underground sonar monster worms into an episodic TV show?

The answer... may surprise you. But what we really want to know is, was TREMORS: THE SERIES canceled too soon?! 

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dig into the mythology of the underground hit and reveal why they love this franchise, and whether TREMORS: THE SERIES is worth exhuming.

Give it a listen, as GHASTLYTOBER continues!

  1. Hello, just gave this a listen. Funny enough, the reason Burt wasn't in the last two episodes is actually because SyFy (then Sci-Fi) and Universal wouldn't play nice with one another, and he was indeed already committed to Tremors 4: The Legend Begins. Universal wouldn't push the start of production of the 4th film a couple months, so as a result, Gross wasn't able to do those last two. Thankfully, because the original team was still behind everything Tremors at the time, they were aware of that and were able to write him out of those two episodes, but they had every intention of bringing him back for the show had it not been canceled. The whole show was full of messy mishaps like that, almost all because of SyFy's weird micromanaging of things, hence all of the episodes airing out of order.

    S.S. Wilson and Brent Maddock and the rest of the team did have some plans for where they were going to go in the future. In a Q&A on their site they mentioned a couple things that they wanted to do; Burt was going to eventually find the lab that Christopher Lloyd's Cletus had worked in. It was going to be revealed that Rosalita (who was established as being the niece of Miguel fro the first and third films) was actually not his niece, and that she had impersonated being a relative of his in order to hide out from the mob due to things that were going to be revealed about her past. Burt was going to get coerced into online dating, only to eventually learn that the woman at the other end was actually Nancy. And while this idea was never committed to, there was an idea discussed for an episode atop a mountain with the characters freezing to death along with an Assblaster that they needed to keep alive in order to stay warm.

    Also, the "monster of the week" focus was a mandate of SyFy, and the writing team headed by Wilson and Maddock did want to distance from that a bit, but Sci-Fi was very adamant about needing a MOTW.

    I personally would have liked to have seen the show continue a bit longer than it did (with a little more leniency on SyFy's end) or have gotten the Australia-set Tremors 5 that Wilson and Maddock had written, since I really wasn't fond of the new team's take on 5 and 6, unfortunately. It kind of bums me out how Universal has basically forced them out of their own franchise, after they shepherded it through four films and a show.

    Anyways, good podcast guys!
