Remake to avoid, see the original
10 January 2008 | by ma407See all my reviews

The New Zealand show Outrageous Fortune has had 3 good seasons.

The first being the best and funniest. However, watching 10 minutes of honest I can't understand why they had to remake this show. They weren't anywhere near the acting of the original, using the same story and plot.

English people speak English, NEW ZEALAND speaks English.. so why didn't they just buy the show and put it on TV in England.

Usually we get Korean, French, and Italian movies remade into English because, well I will quote someone who moaned to me, " I do not want to read subtitles ".

So , where is the excuse for a show from New Zealand.

Even worse...America. They remake everything out of the UK. Why can't they show English shows in America???

It would make sense if any of these remakes were any good. But they never are!
