I think it's important to let everyone know at this point that if a show is on Sky Atlantic it will probably not be shown on any other channel for the forseeable future. When Sky buy up the rights to show any of these series they attempt usually successfully to insert a clause which prevent s the show from being sold to anyone else who might compete with them. There are a few exceptions such as Blue Bloods which is shown on RTE (irish television channel) because the show was bought by RTE before Sky, Sky attempted to prevent RTE gaining access to season 2 but the makers refused on the grounds that RTE had come in first.

hope all that made sense, brain is very fried today

Fair play to the makers. Morals over money. That has to be a first in the television industry!

They must do things different. here, its all about syndication. (well mostly) getting a show popular enough, to last long enough, to get it into syndication where it can be bought by other networks and more money made on reruns.

Yes, in the US, 100 episodes is the magic number!

It might have been deliberate. Shows use the little side-jokes all the time.

One recent one I caught was on an recent episode of The Office. It was the one where Jim took a week off pretending to be on jury duty. To 'prove' that Jim was lying, Dwight brings in the owners of a Hispanic food truck that fed the jury pool. As they're coming in, Dwight asks the food servers if they recognize Jim. One of them points at Jim and asks, "Quein es el hymie?" which roughly translates to "Who's the Jew?" ('Hymie' being one a lesser-known epithet for Jews). There was no reference to the line in the show itself, which made it even more hilarious--even I wasn't offended.

I can't see the funny in that at all.

Then again, I can't stand The Office, so the US version wouldn't appeal either!

Thank goodness, I thought it was only me who didn't think 'The Office' was funny. :D

I tried to like Extras, and although it was a bit better, I think I'm just allergic to Gervais.

Can't stand the man.

I found The Office painful to watch and I have to agree about Ricky Gervais - I can't stand the guy.

Having Steve Carrell made it a completely different character, and I loved the US Office (but not the UK one). Some of the storylines were the same, but not all.
