I have been watching quite a bit of BBC America. I must say, I LOVE IT! There is something cool about watching shows in the UK from my couch in Connecticut. They have these interesting follies before a show starts…something to the tune of: If you are having a hard time understanding what is being said in these programmes you can adjust the closed captioning on your t.v. from home."
Then there is a display of a remote and the correct buttons to push for closed captioning…
They nit pick at American stereotypes all the time, it is so funny. They also have Anglophenia British gossip from an American Prospective.
Incidentally, I think Torchwood is going to be really good!
On to what I am watching now - Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares - for those who don’t knwo this is a show with Gordon Ramsey, a Brit who does the Hells Kitchen schtick on American Prime time. Anyway, this is a British show where he goes into failing restaurants, pubs and the like and reinvents them to make them more profitable and better all around eateries. I have not seen one yet that I didn’t like. What a cool concept.
The entire show is full of “beeps” because Gordon says ‘fuck’ close to 500 times an episode. Gotta Love it.
Anyone else like BBC America? Or Brits - what is your favorite show?
