    When you can't even meet YouTube's low standards, you have a problem.

    They try and fail with so many UK shows. Such a shame. Why don't they just show the UK one?!

    A very good question indeed! The only remake that kinda worked was Sanford and Son which was a remake of Steptoe and Son. The actor who played the son was a bit wooden though which spoilt it.

    How come the rest of the world can understand American sitcoms like Friends, Frasier and Seinfeld but they cant understand a sitcom about teenage life in a schooL??

    I thought so too.

    The Wicker Man (in which Nicholas Cage plays an excellent Nicholas Cage) was not that great.

    What do you mean? Surely Wicker Man was the greatest acting performance of a generation!

    The rest of the world can, the American "audience" can't.
    Unfortunately most american remakes are made to fulfill teh extremely limited scope that the netowrks allow.
    So for the Inbetweeners it will be being remade (unless it's by HBO) for reasons of language (swearing), attitude and nudity (yes the fashion accident in THAT episode is probably enough).

    Remarkbly Conservative Nation the U, S of A.

    Plus their Nielsen's ratng system needs a serious overhaul.

    His performance was a tour de Force because he managed to make the role more wooden than a guy that has Wood in his name 3 times!!! (and I know the first wood is a bit of a stretch).

    The less we say about their version of The IT Crowd the better. It's the same show, jokes and Moss...

    It's lucky there's a letter D in the alphabet otherwise he'd be called Ewar Woowar.

    (always makes me laugh and I still don't know why. Just say it out loud, it's great fun. Ewar Woowar! Ewar Woowar!)

    American Office is great, really great especially with the cameos in the later episodes.

    Shameless - wasn't great as the UK version after the first couple of series but the American one was absolutely awful!

    Friends, Frasier and Seinfeld
    I remember some years ago reading an article that said that over here we only get a tiny proportion of the shows created over there...and those are selected by our TV companies as ones that we will really "get"...as for the rest I gather they are pretty dire, and in fact watching Channel 5 I think that is probably the case!

    It is also true that America is very conservative...for instance over there OMG usually stands (and in the days of early chatrooms always stood) for Oh my gosh/goodness as using the name of God is considered too much for their puritanical tastes...

    If you want an indication of how staid their television is just look at the reaction of US guests on the Graham Norton Show...they generally can't believe what they are allowed to get away with over here and many of them positively revel in the new found freedom to say what they like...freedom of speech anyone?
