Pirates of the British TV Series: The curse of the Jack Davenport

US version of Coupling found to be crap. I call trout.

This isn't the first time something like this has happened to the US remake of a British show starring the floppily-haired-man.

(Aside: Is it just me, or is Richard Coyle doing the voiceover work for the new Microsoft Windows Server 2003 advert on TV? The one with the Active Directory rollout?)

Good, I'm glad it was cancelled. It was too painful to watch, at least for someone who has watched the original BBC version. If the plots were a little different, I might not have minded the bad acting so much, but seeing them read the same lines, was just too odd. I hope the US networks have learned their lesson. However, I wouldn't be surprised to read in a month about a US version of "The Office" being produced. Ugh.

Oh no. I was just joking about a US "Office" remake, but it's not a joke apparently: http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=597&ncid=772&e=2&u=/nm/20031016/tv_nm/television_office_dc

There was a US version of Ultraviolet? Eek. The original *rocked*, but it was quintessentially British. Doing an American remake would be like doing a BBC remake of Buffy. It just wouldn't work.
