I'll get A2A first before I get LoM U.S. Always preferred a sausage butty over a pastrami sandwich anyway!
A Del Boy says "know it makes sense" ;)
Good move Dirty Epic. If you haven't seen Ashes to Ashes then quick go and get it. You'll love it. I watched it straight after LOM, and I had to buy series 2 and 3 of A2A straightaway as I had to know what happened. My post might seem that I favoured LOM more but I very much enjoyed seeing the characters of Gene, Chris, Shaz and Ray continue to solve crimes and to see what happened next. I did like Alex Drake as a character a lot. It covers the 1980s, so depending on your age, you might recognise more of the fashion choices of the characters (Chris's blond highlights and denim jacket ) and laugh about them as well as enjoy the shows.
Might sound like sacrilege but is US version of LoM worth getting? Saw an ep ages ago on Fox and didn't mind it but not seen the rest. I like Harvey Keitel & Michael Imperioli (Sopranos) so wondered if it was up to scratch as per their usual work?
Yep, that's about right. Stick to the PROPER version Dirty Epic
Not sure if this link is working as it took a long time to load. Just to quote the article:
Philip Glenister may be making his debut in a US TV show this month, but the London-born actor hasn't held back when it comes to American re-makes of well-loved British programmes.
Glenister, who is currently playing Reverend Anderson, an evangelist who likes to drink, in horror drama Outcast, took umbrage with the US version of Seventies police drama Life on Mars, in which he starred as DCI Gene Hunt. He told The Mirror: "They remade it and messed it up.
"They did it with Mad Dogs and they messed that up as well. Furious.
"It’s a great source of frustration, I think, certainly for British actors. The one series that seems to have worked for them was The Office."
Life on Mars ran on BBC One between 2006 and 2007, luring a peak of 7.1 million viewers who tuned in to watch the time-travelling police procedural.
The original show was broadcast in a number of countries, including New Zealand, Australia, Croatia, Israel and Hong Kong.
It was also shown in the US through BBC America just a few months after both series aired in the UK, as well as being released more publicly in 2010.
Despite this, there was a US remake made starring Harvey Keitel in Glenister's role. Dwindling viewing figures caused the show to be cancelled
