What in the name of almighty fuck has happened to British TV?

What happened to the days where the Yanks would attempt to remake British shows (The Office, Red Dwarf, Fawlty Towers) and come up with some piss-poor failure of an imitation that proved once and for all that the American sense of humour resides somewhere between "lacking" and "retarded"?

Specifically, what the fuck is this shit?!

LOOK! Slappers!

WOW! Amusingly fat people!*
(* n.b. not actually amusing)

AMAZING! Shit that's on fire!
Way to take one of the best shows on Television and turn it into a puerile shitfest for wank-happy 12 year olds with a serious case of teh stupeds.

Oh wait, did I mention there were

NORGS!

MORE NORGS!
See, norgs and stuff on fire is supposed to make up for the fact that the show is completely devoid of interesting content of any sort. ... I mean, not that I'm known for an aversion to either, but at least TRY to justify it, please? A piss-poor celebrity impersonator who looks nothing like Tina Turner is NOT a justification for blowing stuff up or setting it on fire. Either just do it, or at least come up with a backstory that isn't all smug, wanky and tongue-in-cheek.

Another thing I didn't mention, and probably the crux of the matter:

CAUTION: DICKHEAD
Maybe if this guy wasn't so ironic-smug/I'm-so-cool-I-should-be-presenting-a-special-on-Damien-Hirst-where-he-chops-me-the-fuck-up-and-puts-ME-in-Formaldehyde it'd all be ok. But you can only take so much.

And it's not just him, too:
WOW! It's Zany Amusing Water Cooler Guy!

IF YOU ACTUALLY WORKED WITH ME, I'D PROBABLY PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE.
*leans on water cooler* Here's one for you, Whateveryournameis: Get off my TV.

Perhaps I'm just cranky because I keep missing Mythbusters due to conspiracies of circumstance / family drama / just plain forgetfulness...

If someone wants to buy me some ballistics gel and a mould of the main wanker from Brainiac I'll be forever in their debt.






Well, that was an angry one.


Oh that's right, it's Tuesday, isn't it.
