More tv thoughts...

First let me say, my roommate put US skins on last night, and I only caught a sum-total of 5 minutes, but I am pretty sure you're not supposed to just take the entire damn screenplay and recast it with unattractive uncharismatic Americans and say VOILA! Remake! I thought the person who's supposed to be Tony was Maxxie at first, because his "suaveness" just read as GAY to me. And then I found out they cut Maxxie.

I may be the only person who doesn't mind this remake. BUT I DON'T MIND THIS REMAKE.

Let us start off by saying we're ignoring the fact that Aidan has the same name as my brother. Woe, I remember the days when I would say 'my brother's name is Aidan' and people would say 'WAT? ADRIAN?" Damn you, Sex In The City, now there are Aidans EVERYWHERE! I am v. happy that Sam Witwer was cast in the role. I remember when he was a hot incompetent sociopath on Dexter, how far baby has come.

Also, I LOVE LOVE LOVED how they used "Weighty Ghost" by Wintersleep (DL it here). How he called Josh a slut and the way he told Josh "It's okay," when their landlord called him and Josh a couple, arms crossed in his tight little cashmere sweater. Yeah, I would totally slash them together so hard.

And Sally is so beautiful and cute! "You're trying to scare us with Bon Jovi?" AHAHAHA.

It also seems like Aidan is older in this version? Did I miss that.
