This isn't in any way, shape or form a comparison of tatse, but, as Americans, which do you prefer? The reason I ask is because whenever a TV show or film enjoys widespread success in Europe and elsewhere, whenever the rights are aquired by an American studio or broadcaster, they always remake it for their U.S audience. Have any of you ever watched the European original after watching the American remake, or vise versa? And if so, how did they compare; or were you left confused by the original's format/style? American imports enjoy success across, Britain, continental Europe and beyond, but they're never remade for their respective domestic audiences. We enjoy the original, and often learn from it. Don't you think you're missing-out on aspects of the experience of a foreign-made production that's been re-made for the U.S market? There's been so many successful exports that have been re-made for American audiences, often stripping away the original's essence, that there's too many to name. But a recent example is the explosion of gripping thrillers coming out of Scandinavia eg: The Millenium Trilogy by the late Stieg Larsson, starring Noomi Rapace & Michael Nyqvist, replaced by Daniel Craig & Rooney Mara in the U.S version. Another example is Forbrydelsen, aka The Killing, starring Sofie Gråbøl. Both enjoyed enormous success, and were re-made for the U.S market. I can't even imagine spoiling how much I enjoyed the originals by watching the American re-makes. You?
