Did anyone read on Yahoo today who the Americanskis cast to play Mrs Marple in the remake? You would think they would go for somebody mature, wise and a little bit English countrysideish. Instead they cast 30 something blistering sex pot Jennifer Garner.

I really really dont get it

Do Americains have to destroy everything they steal from Britain? I'm not sure if any of you bothered watching the US version of Shameless but even William H Macey was shocking in it.

And with Being Human and (according to my beloved) Eastenders and Hollyoaks being pinched you have to wonder what their going to ruin next.

Probs more of our history, although after Ben Afleck winning the battle of Britain on his todd and Christian Slater cast as Winston Churchill ( who was apparently an American G.I. tasked with stopping the UK siding with the Nazis in WW2) I doubt there is much left they could steal.

Sorry about the rant guys. Got set off by the American in my office (who has lived in Scotland for nearly 3 years now) calling me English....again. Gonna go tell her where our haggis fields are

At least in the case of Christian Slater as Winston Churchill that was done with tongue firmly in cheek ("Drop yo' toolies! Ain't nobody leaving this bitch!") but with the majority of the other cases it'll all be played straight.

And thanks for reminding me TipToes, got to go check on the latest haggis crop! Wink

Would like to see an American version of "Citizen Khan". Call it "Taliban and Jerry's". Basically, as long as the British original is taken off our screens, I'm happy
