YES YES YES! BEING HUMAN is a great example. The US remake is...there are no words, just shudders (and not from fear). That they're 'remaking' BROADCHURCH for a US audience is insane, as well. It's not to say that we haven't got ANY decent TV here, but the Brits/Irish/Welsh/ etc. do it better a great deal of the time. And it IS a matter of dumbing down, sadly, whether it's in horror, cop shows (compare LUTHER to just about any ridiculous US equivalent), whatever.
