    I'm about 3 episodes behind and so far it's hella confusing. Apparently, according to my mum who's been watching every week, it's in danger of becoming flat. Of not wrapping itself up properly. I miss the old TorchWood where it wasn't taken over by Americans (no offence) and was only filmed in Britain. *sigh*

    Yes... You do you're taking Heartland (it's starting to show down there now), and now you're remaking Being Erica... Gah. CBC needs to keep their own shows.

    No offense taken. I knew they were going to ruin it the moment I heard.

    We're taking Heartland? I haven't watched the old show yet because I read some of the episode summaries and it sounded like I'm way too loyal to the books to be able to watch it.

    And OUCH! I was hoovering and banged one of my toenails. They're already growing backwards as it is! lol

    I heard Skins got canned because there was trouble with all the sex scenes. HAHA.
    Seriously? People need to research UK Skins before watching it. I used to watch the first season, (after Nicolas Hoult left, it wasn't the same) and it wouldn't be Skins without sex, drugs and... rock and roll! lol

    Which is the reason that most american spin offs of british shows suck, America is very against sex, and cursing in shows.

    Hahahahahaha you should see our movies. I wouldn't be surprised if 99% of the movies in production right now are either book adaptations, remakes, or sequels. I mean, they're remaking Dirty Dancin' and Footloose. It's ridiculous.

    I honestly think they're scared to make original movies. Book adaptations, remakes, and sequels all come with built-in audiences. No one wants to create a movie that flops, so they're playing it safe instead of taking a risk.

    very true, HR!

    Yeah see shows like True Blood, Weeds, Dexter, ect... they are all amazing because they break all the traditional TV rules because they are on Premium channels, that you have to pay to watch.

    Weeds was...weird. I never could watch it. Yeah, they make crappy remakes of tv shows, and then cancel good, original stuff. Like Gossip Girl. Sure, it's "based" on the books, but that's a good series. And they take SOOOO long between seasons, it's unreal! I'm seriously having withdrawal symptoms!
    As my mum always says "they come up with crappy shows, and get rid of the good stuff!" Then again, we're sort of the same. Except we keep the crappy stuff, and keep making crappy stuff. Our soaps are the worst. It's like...I can't believe East-never-enders, Coronation Shit and Emmerdull are still going! haha like my adapted names? :P teehee

    Rom-coms are excluded from that because they have a built-in audience. Also, they're formulaic so the majority are already lacking originality.

    I know! It's very rare for me to watch a rom-com that I don't like, but I hated How Do You Know and No Strings Attached (there was one awesome line in that whole movie).
