we don't get much european anything over here... cept for new british* invasion. must be 'cause we too lazy to read subtitles and such. but also b/c there are so many people here that want to do an american version of everything that's successful everywhere else so...

anyhoo -- AMC is a cable channel responsible for some other great shows too like Breaking Bad

and now the *swedes are stepping in -- with Dragon Tattoo lady and now this dood:

Ahh, thanks Nikee, it's a bit like that over here too, the "Montalbano" series isn't only subtitled, but boy, they sure are fast.

You see it, and then it's gone!

I see a lot of American shows on here that are are a bit of a blank, but sound interesting, what I should do is ask for a Youtube clip, or similar reference, that way I'd understand what people are raving about!

Oh, the new British invasion, do you mind setting out the titles, and which USA channel runs them?

Thanks Nikee, that gives a flavour.

Gary Oldman, you didn't know he was a Brit, I first saw him in True Romance, " as a Drexel!"

"She's the uptight one".

I was watching Californication, a few years ago, but didn't know it was still running.

We get most of the USA shows over here, most of it, but I don't get Sky so not sure if shows like FALING SKY, have hit our shores yet. So it's a fair exchange.
Oh, and this week WB have just opened a revamped sound stage/studio at Leavesden, nr Watford, London, after a 150 million revamp. 9 or so stages.

And Oh, Russell Brand, can you keep him over there... PLEASE. Detain him, use anything, "your passport's got some irregularities Sir!" , just make some sh-- up!

Greg, as much as writers rave about BREAKING BAD I think the PBS SHERLOCK series is the best thing on TV. Oh, and I loves me some LUTHER.

Back to THE KILLING, it sure would be a plot twist if the fourth person to get on the elevator was Linden and Holder's boss, the cop who's hiding the evidence files..

Thanks Greg/Why One.

Interesting. Does BBC America air documentaries, too.


(apologies - don't wish to derail thread, just curious. I sometimes see some great docs over here and wonder, esp if they concern America, if you get to see them, especially some of the BBC4 progs that are produced. I wondered if that was exported).
