    All the shows in tv some or atleast one track are taken from the movies...whats the point of making an article out of it and mentioning only these shows...

    why only these shows-every show worth its money has aped some or the other Film-not to forget that the film too will be copied from some foriegn film or a previously made film!
    every show has some parts lifted off from films,be it a certain dailoge,track,song pictuization,sequence etc-but yeah the audience isnt grumbling and neither are the makersLOL
    This thing has been happening for ages and however jaded some of the tracks are i dont see them stopping anywhere in the future...
