    Do you love Farmville? Do you wish its delightful settings, story, and characters could be transferred over to a television show? Well too fucking bad, because it is, with director Brett Ratner producing it.

    If you don't know Brett Ratner, he's best known for one of Jackie Chan's lesser films, Rush Hour, another bad Silence of the Lambs sequel, Red Dragon, and the bad X-Men movie, The Last Stand.

    In other exciting news, Zynga (the creators of Farmville) have posted a $200 million+ loss.

    They're really farming this out, aren't they?

    Still, I guess I get it - they have a built in catchphrase and everything. Ba-Zynga!

    Really? Farmville?

    Even Angry Birds is better suited to a TV show than Farmville.

    "Farmville: Adventures from the Abattoir" would be a better fit.

    Maybe John Cleese was on to something in that Architect Sketch and how he wanted to build a block of flats equipped with rotating knives.

    Why waste money on a series that will barely get a season in?

    I'd rather have another Mario Bros Super Show, if things are boiling down to a FarmVille tv series being necessary.

    Well... this is a loss to the world.
    They can create anything. But they decided on Farmville. This is what life ends at...?

    Am I the only one here that has no clue as to what this farmville is but nonetheless it doesn't sound appealing.

    This show will turn out to be either a cash cow or a turnip.
