Inspired by the release of Downton Abbey: A New Era, this week, Dave, Joanna, and Neil debate what is the best movie based on a TV show. But first, they need to go over the results of last week’s poll (1:48). After that, they discuss the different kinds of choices for today’s topic (2:58), before arguing their choices for best movie based on a TV show (28:00), and hearing some listener submissions (47:40).

Now it’s up to you to decide! What is the best movie based on a TV show? You can vote for the winner below, on The Ringer’s Twitter feed, and in the Spotify app, where you’ll find Trial by Content. The winner will be announced next week!
