With the slew of recent film to TV adaptations, there was bound to be a dud (or more) in the bunch. "Fargo" proved itself worthy of its high profile predecessor on FX. "About a Boy" gets stronger and stronger each week on NBC, and El Rey Network's "From Dusk Till Dawn" is, well, exactly what fans were hoping to see. It should come as no surprise, though, that if any network was going to bungle the adaptation of a fine film to an equally enjoyable episodic sitcom it would be CBS. The Eye's vision of "Bad Teacher" is both nothing and exactly like its title: It's very bad, but completely unlike the ferocious film that birthed it.  While this may be the least shocking news of the day for any television enthusiast, the question then becomes why that's the case. Why did most if not all of us expect "Bad Teacher »
