Britain's Got Talent 2013: Can Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden find a star?
The US Inbetweeners - first pictures
They say that imitation is the greatest form of flattery so we should be pretty pleased that the US has adopted one of the nation's favourite comedies: The Inbetweeners.
MTV, who will be airing the US version of the show, has released this first ever snap of the US cast and we're intrigued. They look like innocent lads to us - will they be able to portray the hilarious filth the British cast got away with so effortlessly? We hope so!
How do the US cast fare against the original E4 stars? We take a look at how they compare...

The Inbetweeners USA no hope??? The yanks have not got our British sence of humour,it wont work,the USA like pretty people to play a certian part,they dont look right????? Inbetweeners in Britain works good... WE ALL know someone who is like,Jay,Simon,neil,will.In the USA i think they look to erm errrr FAKE
Casting is the most important thing for any programme or film.
Think of any film or TV series that you love, and you can bet that that everyone in it has worked perfectly - The Inbetweeners being a prime example. I could not imagine anyone in it who could have been replaced by someone "better".
That's why we'll hate this remake - the actors (however talented) will be seen as fakes of the REAL thing.
And by the by, US Neil looks more suited to be Jay and US Jay looks more suited to be Neil going by picture number 1.
Nothing wrong with it as such (typical US cop show) but it has only one connection with our Prime Suspect - and that is the star's character is called Jane (they even changed the surname from Tennison).
Good luck to Lynda La Plant for earning from this show - but I cannot see any relationship to our version.
If anything, the American office is better. I know it doesn't work in America for most series, if anything therre attempts at adapting what are now considered to be traditional british comedies show it, like their attempts at Fawlty towers.
It wil work if they base it upon what American teenagers are like, and actually not worry about trying to stay true to the original.
