GoldenEye
Synopsis: "Pierce Brosnan takes his first turn as debonair MI6 agent James Bond, who -- with his sophisticated gadgets and signature Aston Martin -- investigates the destruction of a Russian satellite weapons base with the help of the massacre's sole survivor (Izabella Scorupco). Through brawls with the sultry and deadly villain Xenia Onatopp (Famke Janssen), Bond uncovers an international crime syndicate whose next target is London."
(Synopsis compliments of Netflix)


Edit summary: Cut a handful of scenes or partial scenes that interrupt the flow of the story and action, and part of the ludicrous tank chase.
Tomorrow Never Dies
Synopsis: "Pierce Brosnan stars as suave action hero James Bond in this continuation of the legendary 007 series, this time pairing the secret agent's continental charms with the fighting skills and intelligence of Chinese agent Wai Lin (Michelle Yeoh). The threat of World War III looms as media mogul Elliot Carver (Jonathan Pryce) pits China and Britain against each other to complete his global communications empire. But can Bond stop him in time?"

Edit summary: Cut part of the motorcycle chase to make it less long and absurd.
Heat
Heat (1995)
Synopsis: "As two driven professionals -- an illustrious detective (Al Pacino) and a sophisticated thief (Robert De Niro) -- face off, they learn how much they need each other, and that the line between cop and criminal isn't always well-defined. Brilliantly directed by Michael Mann, Heat is a hyperkinetic crime drama about two men on opposite sides of the law who approach life in much the same way. Val Kilmer, Tom Sizemore and Jon Voight co-star."
(Synopsis compliments of Netflix)


Edit summary: Cut the constant home/wife interruptions to Al Pacino's storyline and other minor cuts to streamline and focus the plot a little.
The Sound of Music
Synopsis: "A tuneful, heartwarming story based on the real life story of the Von Trapp Family singers, one of the world's best-known concert groups in the era immediately preceding World War II. Julie Andrews plays the role of Maria, the tomboyish postulant at an Austrian abbey who becomes a governess in the home of a widowed naval captain with seven children, and brings a new love of life and music into the home."

Edit summary: Cut a couple songs that were interludes to the story rather than flowing with it.
Man in the High Castle
Synopsis: "This series, loosely based Philip K. Dick's novel of the same name, takes a look at what the world might look like had the outcome of World War II turned out differently. In this dystopian scenario, the Axis powers won the war, leading to the United States being divided into three parts, an area controlled by the Japanese, a Nazi-controlled section, and a buffer zone between the two."

Edit summary: Refocused the series fully on Juliana Crain, cutting the boring Jewish resistance side-plot following her boyfriend. Drop the last couple seasons with their lame plot twists and strip out as much of the 'teleportation' from Season 1 and 2 as possible to keep it more mysterious/plausible.
Most Dangerous Game
Synopsis: "Desperate to take care of his pregnant wife before a terminal illness can take his life, a man accepts an offer to participate in a deadly game where he is the prey."

Edit summary: Cut a few minor scenes and details to make the story flow better and condense all the short episodes into a single video.
Upload
Synopsis: "A man is able to choose his own afterlife after his untimely death by having his consciousness uploaded into a virtual world. As he gets used to his new life and befriends his angel (real world handler) questions about his death arise."

Edit summary: Cut the minor gay and transgender side-plots and characters, clean up a few other cringey scenes.
Killing Eve
Synopsis: "Eve - a bored MI5 analyst - and Villanelle - a talented, mercurial assassin - go head to head in a fierce game of cat and mouse."

Edit summary: Cut the terribly useless Season 3 and consolidate the previous seasons - stripping out Eve's husband sideplot in Season 1 and her extreme lesbian obsession in Season 2 (which actually makes the characters seem subtly MORE lesbian once the cringey overt lesbian writing is cleaned up). Completely remove the stabbing subplot.
Helix
Synopsis: "Centers for Disease Control scientists Alan Farragut and Julia Walker have seen their share of disease outbreaks in their time with the agency. But they have not experienced anything like what they see at high-tech research facility Arctic BioSystems. When the two lead the rapid response team that investigates a possible disease outbreak at Arctic, they enter a life-and-death struggle as the virus evolves."

Edit summary: Cut the majority of the weird cult plot that dominates season 2, and a few melodramatic or slow scenes in the first season.
Don't Look Deeper
Synopsis: "A high school student in central California sets off an unexpected series of events when she begins to doubt if she's human."

Edit summary: Cut the lesbian and gender references and consolidate all the episodes.
Berlin Station
Synopsis: "Transitioning from his job as a CIA analyst in the U.S., Daniel Miller's new mission puts him under cover at the agency's Berlin branch, tasked with sorting out messy cases involving damaging leaks, whistle-blowers, terrorism and more."

Edit summary: Cut the crossdressing subplot, gay informant subplot, and a bunch of irrelevant filler scenes. Drop season 2 and 3 to create a tight, complete story.
Black Sails
Synopsis: "A prequel to the classic Robert Louis Stevenson novel 'Treasure Island,' 'Black Sails' is a pirate adventure that centers on the tales of Captain Flint, who has a reputation throughout the West Indies as being the most brilliant, most feared of all the Golden Age pirates."

Edit summary: Cut the gay and lesbian pirate relationships, Silver's slave girlfriend, and any other soap opera side plots and relationships that slowed down the main pirate plot.
Californication
Synopsis: "Bachelor Hank Moody's (David Duchovny) got it made: he's a sexy best-selling author who's irresistible to the ladies. But as a part-time dad juggling his wild L.A. lifestyle with grown-up responsibilities, this say-anything writer's at a loss for words. This smart Showtime comedy also stars Natascha McElhone (as Hank's ex-girlfriend), Madeleine Martin (as Becca, his 13-year-old daughter), Madeline Zima and Evan Handler."
(Synopsis compliments of Netflix)


Edit summary: Cut several garbage seasons, stitched together a few episodes to make the removals seamless, and edited a season finale to be the series finale.
Wonderfalls
Wonderfalls (2004)
Synopsis: "Jaye Tyler (Caroline Dhavernas) has no aspirations aside from working as a clerk in a small gift shop adjacent to Niagara Falls until unexplainable events -- such as lifeless objects speaking to her in secret -- remind her she might be destined for offbeat greatness. Taking her cues from inexplicable sources, Tyler uses her Ivy League intelligence to come to the aid of perfect strangers who need her help."

No Edit Necessary
Unreal
Unreal (2015)
Synopsis: "Set against the backdrop of a fictional hit dating competition show, UnREAL is led by Rachel a young staffer whose sole job is to manipulate her relationships with and among the contestants to get the vital dramatic and outrageous footage the program's dispassionate executive producer, Quinn King, demands.

What ensues is a humorous, yet vexing, look at what happens in the world of unscripted television, where being a contestant can be vicious and producing it is a whole other reality."
