Doctor Who, now? Isn't that just an Inspector Spacetime rip-off?

It's still snowing here in New York and we're all starting to get a little stir crazy. If someone says they see creepy twins or messages in a mirror, I'm so out of here. In the meantime, there's some TV news happening in the outside world.

TWoP 10: Spinoffs That Were Better Than Their Original Shows

We're not sure that the world really needs a spinoff to Criminal Minds, but then again, we didn't think sub-divisions of Law & Order were necessary and SVU and Criminal Intent proved us wrong by being far more enjoyable than their mothership. And while spinoffs may not always grab us right off the bat (like NCIS: Los Angeles), sometimes a new series just needs a little time before it starts improving upon its predecessor. Case in point: The City returned this week with new characters and a compelling new focus that made it far more watchable than the now totally contrived LC-less The Hills. But these aren't the only shows that have been better than their originals. Here's our look back at the best spinoffs from the past two decades:

It's Tuesday, which means we'll see if Idol decides to take my suggestions to slim down... a girl can dream, can't she? Anyway, there's lots of random things happening in the world, not really any of them that are good or interesting.

Torchwood: Season 2

Torchwood: Season 2

Now those Brits know how to put out DVD extras! This was by far one of my favorite DVD watching experiences in recent months, and not just because I found the second season of this Doctor Who spinoff to be amazing, but because it was stuffed with bonus features that I actually wanted to watch. Shocking, I know!

For those of you unfamiliar with this BBC America show, imported from the lovely UK, its a sci-fi series that takes the extremely attractive DW recurring guest Captain Jack Harkness (a sexy former time agent who can't die, played by the dreamy John Barrowman), teaming him with smart, sassy detectives and pitting them against otherworldly creatures. Sounds a little X-Files-ish, but when you throw in some hysterical dialogue and lots and lots of sex (hetero, homo and other), it becomes an addictively entertaining show that's like nothing else on earth.
