tv: one more thing…
Dear Gods of Television,
Please inspire your earthly vessels to write some new shows* and stop reaching into time and space to swipe remake shows from the past or other countries–they won’t be as good or as funny**. Between constant commercials for Knight Rider last night, a teaser for Kath & Kim and a recent news story about The Worst Week of My Life it makes me wonder if we’re creating anything new anymore.
I still plan on watching Little Britain USA, but my expectations are getting lower and lower. It’s not Matt & David’s fault, but US tv just destroys British shows when they’re ported over here.
* Yes, I know.. I typed (OMG) shoes. It’s been a long day already.
** With the possible exception of The Office, the U.S. version of which I’ve never watched. Sadly its success led NBC to try bringing Coupling over here as well, which tanked!
