We've had Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares in the UK for a good few years and now Channel 4, the broadcasters of the show, have started a new series - Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares USA. Within the first few seconds it was obvious that Ch4 were pulling the wool over our eyes! The format had clearly been sold to the US and Ch4 had now bought the American season and was showing them to us as a 'new series'. But it got me thinking about the way Americans and the English make their TV shows. After a few minutes I had to turn it off as it just was not what I was used to - it was like one long trailer; endless sound bites, an endless bed of music, very fast cutting etc. This seems to be the way Americans like their shows which is also demonstrated when I watch other American versions of shows originally shown in the UK - American Idol, How Clean Is Your House, Wife Swap etc. So here's the question: Do you guys get fed the UK versions in the same way we get the American versions and, if so, what do you guys think of the way we make our shows?
