Sin City would be damn cool as a TV show but I think the budget for each episode would be too much.

I've long though Sin City's biggest problem was its television format squeezed into a film time slot. No way to get good story arcs going, you instead have to rely on snapshots of characters' lives.

I second that the budget for the black 'n white comic effects would kill its budget chances the same as the live-action X-men I've always dreamed about, but in a perfect world, that's what it'd be. Or, ya know, a graphic novel of some kind.

American Beauty? Um... no. I am not interested in a TV show about a pedophile.

KickAss sounds like a really solid idea to me. Not to expensive of a show to do, can easily fit into an episodic format and is fresh enough idea to stand out on the tv landscape.

If an Arrow tv show can be profitable then so can that.
