    I'm interested to see what kind of setting they put it in.
    Whats the American equivolant of a coucil estate lol?
    The cast better not be a great looking bunch either, it'd take something away from the show icon_razz.gif

    Ya it started back in January, we are on episode 6. It is about Chicago family and it is absolutely amazing.

    There have already been two threads on RJ about it. Not many people are embracing it here which is surprising but o well.

    American version is different. I like both though, the British version runs on the Sundance channel early Monday mornings.

    The American version relies to strongly on there being a dominant controling female figure where the british version does not. Not saying that the females are not there but that women are equally self centered. You can root for everyone not just one character.

    Again, love both versions but maybe the Brit's a little more. I'd say the Brit feels more grity real where the American version is the grity fantasy of reality.
