People actually watch this stuff?? The jokes = so unfunny. What is happening to English TV? Is it any wonder that people like me get addicted to American drama's, comedies, cartoons, kids shows, whatevers, if this is the idiocy that makes up our own TV shows (and most England produced stuff is, recently) ? Seriously, the show is rife with the kind of stereotypical humour that gives everybody in England a bad name. To top it all of, I have to bluff my way through a bunch of "Wasn't Catherine Tate good last night?" at school, hello! I don't even watch it!! But can't admit to that as you all think it is so good.
There is nothing wrong with Americanization.
