I find it intriguing how some shows translate from UK to US well and others don't. I remember when they tried to bring the brilliant UK comedy Coupling to NBC. While the script was nearly identical (except that a 30 min. episode was cut to 22 min.) the NBC version was a disaster! It was like no one at NBC got the point of the original. Now, SyFy has re-done Being Human, and the script is nearly identical again, but this time the result is so far superior to the original. The pacing, atmosphere, and acting is much better in the SyFy version. How is it that the same script can be so different and why does it work in one case and fail in another?
