No no no!

There's only one thing to be said.

This should've never ever been made! Apparently you're not meant to 'shout' in these comments. Why? I want to make a valid point and the opinion I wish to articulate needs to be heard over the rooftops. What better way to achieve this than shouting?What is the fascination of the American TV companies with seeing a fabulous UK programme saying Hmmm this looks good, let's take it to the States. But instead of showing the original show, they decide to remake the programme! It has happened with Are You Being Served?, Coupling, The Office, I'm not going to go on because I'll be here all day.

NO NO NO! We here in the UK don't remake American classics such as Friends, Frasier, Sex and The City, Cheers, M*A*S*H, The Phil Silvers Show. Need I go on? I think my point is made.

If there was a rating of 0 I'd give it to this pile of fermented carrion, but seeing as the lowest rating I can give is 1 that will have to suffice.
