I've thought about doing this many times in the past, just as a practice, but have never got round to it. The idea is to take an episode of your favourite TV show, and write it as a short story. Right now, an old episode of Only Fools and Horses is showing (it's a classic in England) and as always, I'm struck by the brilliance of the writing - some of the exchanges in this particular episode are so good, that the laughter track kind of spoils it, and I find myself imaging how good a social drama it could be without it. The story would be funny - because of the naturally funny dialogue in the episode - but it would be interesting to do this and see how it reads as a short story. It would also be good practice for my third-person writing.
