Just finished the final episode last night. It was a good show. I keep seeing it listed as "Series 1" which is odd. Maybe mo or someone overseas has more insight. Was the British show meant to have more episodes? Seemed pretty wrapped up at the end.
It got some half decent reviews over here,won some awards as well i think,but TBH i never really paid that much attention to it,it was on ITV(1 of the 5 terrestrial channels we have)so i know it certainly got an audience as well(for example Broadchurch got some 7-8 million viewers,in comparison to SKY Atlantic's Game Of Thrones gets on average 550k-1 million viewers because SKY Atlantic is a Premium satellite channel
Although its GoT that everyone talks about the day after
not really a spoiler after what we have discussed but just incase:
I have been looking at the UK shows remade for UShttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_American_television_series_based_on_British_television_series
not that many were really successful..The Office and Steptoe and Son I think are the ones i knew had done well..but quite a few on that list i didn't know had a US remake
and yeah,i can only apologise for some of the shit we have pushed your way
