  1. i can think of many um the show Wilfred a Australian show has a US adaption its better then the original,the US version of the office was great till going down hill in the later seasons, the show being human(original UK) the US adaption is better then the orignal the only crappy US adaptions has been Skins & the Inbetweeners

  2. Very few American adaptations are as good or better than the original in my view. I can think of perhaps only 1. But I suppose it’s a matter of taste.

  3. when is Australian ( the original) going to air & if the american version goes well any chance its going to air here because most people know that american versions are usually better then the original show
