    RavensShallBurn might get a kick out of this...
    I saw this advertised on El Ray network about 50 times this weekend.
    It's serious, but I couldn't help but chuckle each time they ran it..

    LOL

    So this is actually serious?

    At least they did a good job of recreating it, but if you're Hispanic why not just buy the real show and turn it on Spanish?

    Remaking successful shows from the ground up is obviously more profitable than dubbing. Probably bypasses syndication debts etc.

    There is a bunch of US TV coming our way that are remakes of successful EU shows.
    The Killing is an example.. They are re-doing Broadchurch for the US (under a new name) as well as France's "Les Revenants" as The Returned.. and probably loads more..

    Knowing people here it would very unlikely the average American viewer would watched dubbed or subbed versions of the originals - even if they ran as seasons on US networks (as these original versions are already available on Netflix etc.)

    I would but I agree most people would rather watch Spongebob

    Remember the American version of Coupling

    That is how it is NOT done. Truly awful. Didnt even change the scripts, just added DIVERSITY.

    until she had work done she would have been the hottest chick at Khols no doubt about it.

    That there is a solid 7 possibly an 8


    but yeah Anna Gunn looked good until she had whatever she had done. Should have just hit the stairmaster or whatever. But she aint the first and at least she was not butchered like Nikki Cox. Total shame
