Note to Dan Akroyd: Get Off the Stage Before the Lights Dim

The first Blues Brothers movie was a lot of fun,
it was silly and crazy and had lots of great music. The second was pretty lousy, like someone making a movie based on what they vaguely remember of the first, but with less talent as a writer. Now Akroyd wants to make a TV series based on the Blues Brothers. The pitch? Route 66 meets Glee. But, hopefully, less gay and with better music. -- Word Around the Net: WORD AROUND THE NET

Before the word "sequel" even leaves the lips of Akroyd, he would be well-advised to dwell for a moment on Caddyshack II. That should disenthrall him of any notions regarding his involvement in second acts.
