Episode discussion for: 01x01 | Tony (Jan 17, 2011)

This is just a copy of the original with a few changes made, for instance, they changed Maxxie to a girl

I will not be watching any more episodes, I thought the original British show was great, and don't need a recap.

Also, who knows how long this will be on the air since the PTC is going bat-crap crazy about it and calling it child porn and whatnot

I watched about half an hour of the show, trying to get into it and it didn't work so I stopped watching.

It looked interesting from the previews, but I did not like it at all.

I liked the original much more, but thought this one is okay. I don't see why people are getting so upset.. have they NOT seen the original? Guess not..

I think this show would be better on HBO, Showtime, or something and that they didn't copy the plots of the originals and came up with something original.
