I recall that when Luther aired in the UK this past year, British reviews were very mixed, and some viewer comments in places like DS very downright savage. However, in the US, where the show started...

I recommend The Shield. You say you like crime stuff, and as for your husband, well, he just isn't a red-blooded male if he can't get into The Shield.:)

I recently saw a TV ad for a bead shop. A small shop selling nothing but embroidery beads, apparently run by a little old lady with no employees. The ad consisted of nothing but the old lady saying...

I think it is a matter of getting used to something over a lifetime and then not having it. I have always liked the British ex-pats I have met (all of them), but years ago when I was on a board...

Given the difference in the US and UK economies, it makes no sense to characterize American ads as cheap, like that other person did. That of course applies to the national ads, for big companies....

Definitely less than in the standard small bottle. I think if people buy those, the point is to acquire the bottle, frankly.:)

There are no such things as "council towers" in America. Social welfare housing in the US is usually referred to as "the projects" (as in "housing projects") and they are not right on regular...

Well, yeah, there is at least an element in the story that is endearing, charming. Sure, my friend was rather bullied by people who should've minded their business, but there was a PASSION, a gusto,...

It is true that a lot of BBC-made shows have American co-production money involved, but The Tudors is a Canadian-Irish co-production that the BBC buys in as an import.

Then your point is not a sound one. What did I "label" New Yorkers as? You won't even say. In a later post I say outright that New Yorkers are "intense" and "bold." Ooooh, you must bleed from that...
