In the history of television, there have been some damn fine British shows of all sorts. When it comes to quality TV, we definitely punch above our weight (population wise) and the vast amount of stuff, especially from America is utter tripe. However, the population bell curve there (and probably the money, let’s be honest) mean that they do have some good stuff – the current cream being House (or better, Hizzy) and, utterly shockingly, the American version of The Office. The fact they manage to make a good homage to the original and still be their own show is pretty much unheard of to start with, but it might even be a better show.

I’ll probably be kicked out of the country for that.
