Acting doesn't seem to be up to the UK one standards.

Another substandard Yank version of an excellent UK programme?

Actually looking forward to that new series that takes the piss out of the making of US crossovers...

You've missed the first one then. It wasn't that good.

First episodes of odd-numbered series of Skin are always crap.

We'll see if that holds true on Thursday 27th Jan. (but probably as they have to introduce the new cast again)

The US version of Shameless is hilarious. The intro speech/poetry is virtually identical to the UK one. They're not even trying.
