And a hit show in the UK that began in the US?

Bum Bump

It's actually quite clever how they've taken the original stories and poshed them up. Not a bad viddy for fans of the franchise.

Does any one remember "Auf Wiedersehen Pet" ? Brilliantly writing and well-acted, and a poignant study of thatcherite Britain in the 1980s. I tried to get my wife into it but she couldnt grasp the accents. British humour at its very best.
