Stop Remaking British Shows!!

On January 17, Syfy will be premiering a new version of Being Human.

I have one thing to say to that.

No, no! A thousand times no!

That's not to say the cast isn't pretty or talented, but I really think it is time to start coming up with new ideas, rather than rehashing old ones, so that we can ruin something good. There have only been a few cases where the American version of an original British series was actually good, The Office comes to mind there. I don't think this will be another Office.

Have a look at the trailer

Our version to Top Gear also recently premiered, & we've stolen Skins, too.

Two of the best U.S. adaptations of British series were "All In the Family" and "Sanford and Son". However, most of the American remakes fall flat on their faces. The worst one I've seen is the U.S. version of "Coupling".
