Has anyone heard any more on the Fox TV version of Peep Show? Could be interesting...
Friday 10:00 PM on Channel 4In Season
Why can't we just get these shows in America on some of our regular stations, rather than completely re-making them? Is the American public so stupidwe can't enjoythem in theiroriginal form? I found out they're going to make a re-make of Life on Mars as well. Ugh.
What's up with remaking shows nowadays? It's a stupid trend... They seem to be doing it left and right.
Anyways, I can guarantee you it would suck big time. Just look at the american office. Dumb, dumb over the top american humour... they will "sitcom"ify it.
This is just wrong life on mars, IT Crowd, Spaced now this? is there something fundamentaly wrong US TV execs? they cancel really good shows like moonlight thats won awards and try to remake everything british, i wont be surprised if they try it with doctor who soon, the US LoM looks abbysmal from the trailers aswell,
Wright and Pegg have nothing to do with the US Spaced either and have even been refused to even just look to see if their atleast doing it right,
The US office works because its basically an office and offices world wide are mostly the same it was an easy concept to copy but even that only work because they've changed it enough its still only The Office by name aside from that its not like the british version.
I dont see why american like us cant just sit back and watch our programs like we watch theirs, this is not a bash at Us people btw its just lately the TV execs from over there must be blithering idiots riding tricycles around their office while wearing propeller hats they dont seem to know what their doing at all.
No, it wouldn't be interesting at all.
Most of the bits and jokes that make "Peep Show" so funny couldn't air on Fox. It would be censored to hell and then dumbed way way way down for the American television-watching public. It would be a unqualified disaster on the same level as the American "Red Dwarf" pilot. Have you ever seen that piece o' sheet?
I suppose that the humor in it is very British at times, some of the jokes the Americans might not get. But it could never be as good as the British version.
And they'll never find a pair as perfect as Mitchell and Webb for the roles.
