Saxondale

Saxondale.jpgAccording to an article on Slate.com, the British TV comedy Saxondale is coming to America in Americanized form. Feeling un-hip because the first time you saw the The Office was on NBC? This is your chance to get ahead of the curve by watching the British Saxondale on BBCAmerica before it gets Americanized for the US TV market. This will be the third British show that I enjoyed that later on came to the US in mutated form. The first two were The Office (of course) and Teachers. I didn't even bother to watch the Americanized Teachers (which lasted only 6 episodes) because I thought the British version was kind of marginal itself. I'm still waiting for the Americanized versions of Shameless, The Catherine Tate Show, The Robinsons, Little Britain, The Kumars at No. 42, Waterloo Road, Love Soup, The Thick of It, The Street...or even seasons 2 through 4 of the British Teachers.
