Spaced is a classic tv series that should never be remade imo. If you havent seen it i suggest you go buy it. I cant see this working and i cant see the americans catching the vibes of the original series. I will watch this with an open mind but cant see it happening.
What do you guys think?

agreed, spaced rocked.
its humour was either really subtle or plain gross.
i reckon the yanks will overgross it, with great camera work, cheesy lines, and "live" audience laughter.

like you said, i'll keep an open mind, but i got my doubts too..

They'll ruin it standard.

Just goes to show how superior our Comedy is in comparison.They'll over do the gross out stuff and it'll be alot louder (Characters etc...)Basically they will americanize it to make up for the fact that they cannot recreate the british wit/sense of humour/whatever.

Gauranteed Bollocks.

Cant leave a good thing alone.

You're just a typical American hater and goes to show how utter stupid and ignorant you can be. I got no problem with English folks, but you seem to have a problem with Americans. You're just a fucking hater, dead set.

What I find funny is that you're posting here how "we don't get your humor," as if to say your humor is some grand piece of groundbreaking knowledge that somehow no one else in the fucking world can decipher it. Please, get over yourself. Americans get your humor, a lot of them feel that it's quite dull. Different cultures will like different things, get it through your thick head.

If you're really that high sprung for this show to not hit the US because "OMG THE AMERICANS WONT GET IT DONT LET A GOOD THING BE FUCKED!!" - why don't you blame your English producers for being a bunch of money-hungry bastards than trying to shit on Americans.

And who the fuck are you trying to kid you hypocritical prick. You're icon has GTA:SA, a game based off American cities, American humor, and basically everything American.

I'm down with your other thread by the way. I wasn't trying to come across as a 'cunt' as you called me in that other thread, was simply voicing my opinion which I will try to restrict in doing so in the future.

This thread is getting quite aggressive.
Btw i wasnt american bashing when i made this thread i just think Spaced is classic tv and should be remade by ANYONE, american or british.
Sorry if i offended anyone.

Yeah I loved spaced! Agree it should be left alone though, why would you want to make a new series of it? Why not just make a whole new program?!

not really fussed if they do a remake or not, seems anything british thats popular in the states will get remade
makes sense from a business perspective and i would assume the original writers will have a say/cut of the earnings

i love the american office, first season wasnt that good but they've evolved the characters around the actors like in the original and it has really paid off, one of the best comedies on tv

and whats wrong with a remake, u dont have to watch it and if it turns out shit then it will only make the original look better
