Re: American Comedy Vs. British Comedy "TV"
I watched the Inbetweeners in its first run, Guy Gardener, and it was one of the funniest shows I'd seen in years. I still refuse to get my head around the idea there's not one but two American remakes (one of the TV series, the other of the film).
The film wasn't American or a remake. It was a British continuation/finale for the series. Rumour has it the second film is being written now. And the American remake failed in every way imaginable.
One more anal-probing gyro-pyro levitating ecoplasm alien anti-matter story and I'm going to take out my gun and shoot somebody.
