Ursula: Weren’t you watching this same movie yesterday?
Ian: No, this is the sequel. Yesterday, I watched Aims Pond. This is Aims Pond: Super Spy.
Ursula: Wasn’t this originally a TV show?
Ian: Actually, it was originally a novel, which was adapted into a long-running TV show. Then, it was turned into a movie franchise. The newinstallment is coming out next month and I can’t wait!
Ursula: The latest installment? I thought it was just a trilogy.
Ian: No, the original film has spawned four sequels and two prequels so far.
Ursula: So you’re watching all the films again?
Ian: That’s right, but I’m not stopping there. I’m watching all of the TV show episodes again, too. And if I have time, I’ll even watch the spin-off.
Ursula: Spin-off? I didn’t know there had been a spin-off.
Ian: There was. Aims Pond’s brother got his own show: Jaime Pond: Building Inspector. It wasn’t very successful.
Ursula: I guess we can call you a superfan.
Ian: That’s right. I’m a superfan of the super spy!
