Watched the first three seasons on Netflix, really enjoyed it for the most part. Tried the first episode of the U.S. version and it was dismal.

Most US versions of British TV usually are, I'm sad to say.

They really just sucked out all the things that made it fun and quirky. George was my favorite. He had the best lines!

I see that the second season of the dreadful American re-make of Being Human has started in The States. I watched the first three episodes of the first season then gave up on it. It's funny how the Americans take a series they really like and then change it.

You got through 3 episodes?! :shock: Chances are, most people over here don't even know there's an original UK version, so nothing to compare it to. Why the people who make the shows change them so much is beyond me. They see something successful somewhere else, but then feel they have to make changes to market it here. Who knows? One of those mysteries we'll just have to live with.

It works sometimes. All in the Family, arguably one of the all time greats of American TV shows, was a remake of a British show, 'Til Death do Us Part'. Archie Bunker was the American Alf Garnett. ;)

That's a very good point. I wonder what I would have thought of the American series if I'd never seen the original British one.

The Americans are aware of the original British version. Many of them (that I've read in comments sections) prefer it.
