It's always interesting to see series interpretations of movies . Occasionally they don't work , generally more due to the studio that produces it , and their budget . I've heard Westworld is a huge expansion on the movie . Battlestar Galactica , even though it was an original series , was also a movie I think . The 2004 Battlestar - Galactica Series had the overall story , but presented it in a much more dramatic way . And , I have a suspicion , there are other recent series , with a very similar Fatal Attraction movie type of storyline .
