Spinoffs . . . are they a good thing?

More "random" thoughts:

Friends begat Joey.
Cheers begat Frasier.
Barney Miller begat Fish.
Law and Order, CSI

Everybody's doing it these days . . . spinoffs, repurposings, building the synergy. Its a good thing, right?

But did these secondary items enrich and deepen the original or simply suck away the vitality that made its progenitor worthwhile?

Think about it.
