Much as I like Freema and some of the chaps, the export’s no better than the US version, and after trying it twice I haven’t gone back. To my Yank hearing, it’s a lot easier to comprehend the dialogue in this show than, say, EastEnders. I had to take a college course to understand that! (I kid, but it did take me about four episodes before I got used to the accent. I have a knack for languages and dialects. My wife never understood anyone except Barbara Windsor. Must have been her shrieky tone of voice.)
I’ll confess, I’ve not watched.Odd little advert though.
I’m surprised that BBC America doesn’t show Eastenders. You think they could make room for the BBC’s most popular program and I wouldn’t have thought it would be that expensive to purchase the rights.
A few Public TV stations here run it, and you can pay to get it on the satellite service. I loved it, but I don’t get it here. I can, however, get Coronation Street at my Mom’s house. It’s on a Canadian TV channel.
Unfortunately EastEnders has been notorious for charging HUGE fees for near-current rebroadcasts, so most stations that used to show it have dropped it. They also don’t release DVDs aside from themed specials. Darn.
Funny you posted this. We’ve watched the British version a few times and my husband is not a fan. It’s bad enough when we Americans try to play the smug suredness and intensity of these crime shows. Even worse when it sounds like (bad) American dialogue in a British accent!
Brilliant! I have to say I love this show – much better than the US version because it’s grittier.
Wait. Does your Law and Order seriously have both Lee Adama and Martha Jones in it? Whatever the names of the actors are, that’s like… awesome.
Maroon, grey, charcoal, turquoise, rainbow, beige, brown, argyle, plaid …even double rainbow?
How was this overlooked by the Emmys?
HA Love it! This is hilarious… Maybe the scarf thing is a modern take off of Joseph’s amazing technicolour dreamcoat…
As a self-confessed British scarf addict I must say I have been disappointed by how few scarves I’ve seen on the streets of Chicago this winter. So, like the rest of the trailer, it must be a true national trait.
Clearly we’re just a dapper nation.
