Ah, Father’s Day...that second-fiddle after-thought of the greeting card holidays. According to a prominent bank, America spends 40% more money on Mother’s Day. That’s an average of $57 dollars less on Dad than on Mom, and the gap has been widening since 2003.
Maybe a stroll through grades for the good, bad and downright deadly of literary dads will give you some perspective this Father’s Day. Maybe even inspire you to ditch the necktie and get Dad something that says, “I love you just as much as I love Mom.”

While it’s (almost) always fun to see a favorite book turned into a movie, sometimes television is the medium more capable of bringing the true depth and scope of a beloved book for the screen. Some of the most popular and critically acclaimed shows right now, such as Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale, and The 100, are adaptations of popular novels, and that’s just scratching the surface. In this era of Peak TV, here are a few more that we think would translate well to the small screen.
