"We end in a very different place, which is exciting for a first season and could be, yes, a great second season as well."

Christ. I'm convinced everybody in Hollywood is exactly like in the series Episodes.

Broadchurch was excellent and I don't see how they can replicate and Americanize it.

I also can't figure out how the BBC can do a season two.

Tenant's character will have to be shifted to a new town and deal with a new situation that's somehow utterly farked up.

As far as the American version goes, I think Tenant will basically have to play a completely new character.

As an American who watched Broadchurch:
A)how the fark do you make gracepoint? Just from the trailer, it looks IDENTICAL.
B)How do you make a season 2? Because it has the same cast apparently. Did the daughter die this time?

He wants to be successful here, as well as in England, and make some of that fat cash, ala Hugh Laurie (let's make 60 million dollars in 8 years doing American TV). BBC actors don't exactly make bank like actors do here. They make a nice living, but The Big Paycheck Theory is not happening across the pond. Plus a lot of actors really love working (Chris Walken), and they will do about as much as they can fit into their schedules. You can't really blame them, it's a completely cutthroat industry (What have you done for me lately?)

I don't begrudge Tennant for wanting to make a splash-and earn bigger cash-in the States, but for the love of all that's holy, why consent to playing the same TV role you already earned plaudits for at home as a jump-off point? I refuse to believe that there weren't other roles to choose from for an actor of his caliber. Unless his master plan is to phone in this role until a better acting gig comes along?


If so, it seems like an incredibly....lazy way to kick things off.

I was wondering why Eccleston took this job until last week's episode. That was a f*cking tour de force. This week it backslid back into weird/slow pacing world again. It's a strange show. I have NO idea where it is going (I'm sure Lindelof doesn't either)  LOL

Because nothing he's ever done outside of Doctor Who has taken off (excellent reviews as MacBeth notwithstanding).  Because it would be a feat to pull off selling the same character in two completely different settings.  Because, unlike Matt Smith, Cumberbatch, and Capaldi, Tennant is more limited in range; he can't sell every character.

And because it would be a hell of a feat.  Had John Simms done it, Life on Mars might have worked in the US.  We've had plenty of shows crossover and get made in the USA.  And recently, we've had shows like Being Human, where fans of the UK version ended up watching the US version, with the two series running parallel.

Eccleston is the sort who takes risks and sometimes falls on his face.  His portrayal of John Aspinall  in Lucan was just strange, but his accept was all over the place, to the point that you wished he'd just give it up altogether.

Maybe he feels comfortable knowing that the source material is very solid and it has a pretty good chance of being well received here. Unfortunately, the same 2-3 mil American viewers who watch Who and Orphan Black will be the main ones who tune in. Everyone else will be watching Alabama Ass Scratchers, Duck Dynasty, and whatever other scripted "reality" shiat they're peddling in that time slot.
 
2014-07-21 01:38:46 AM  
They'd better change the damn ending from broadchurch.  Because of course the killer is a closeted gay pedophile married to the police officer that was obvious the first time you realized the actor is unable to play a stay-at-home dad as a straight guy. In America we love our stereotypes too!

the US version of LOM was decent. if fell far short of the BBC version, though, which was amazing.

This thread inspried me to start watching The Leftovers.  I think the slow pace works, as it's a show all about waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Eccleston's excellent, as he's best when he's at about 11.

I'd love to know that as well, considering Broadchurch was made by ITV, who are a rival channel.

The BBC are great, but there are other channels, and sometimes they make good stuff. Even the classic World At War documentary is frequently credited to the Beeb instead of ITV.

I dunno his part in Casanova was very good.  It was his work in Casanova that got him on Doctor Who.  Also, while not everyone like the Fright Night remake he did very with what he was given to work with.  Then again, maybe my taste isn't to be trusted since I enjoyed Nativity 2:Danger in the Manger.

So much fail here.  For starters, David has never played Macbeth.  He's said on more than one occasion has no desire to play that part.  Two, quite a bit he's done after Doctor Who has gotten rave reviews, just not in the US because he doesn't work here.  Three, you've clearly never seen him on stage if you don't think he can't sell a character.  Four, I don't think you've seen any of his work, outside of Doctor Who.

It's starting in September on Thursday nights on Fox.  I'm actually looking forward to it.  I loved the original, but I can see this working as well.  They've said that the series will split off after the first two episodes and I'm really hoping they do that, instead of making a straight remake.
 
2014-07-21 09:26:03 AM  
There were so many great things about Broadchurch besides Tennant and Colman that Fox has almost zero chance of pulling off. The supporting cast was excellent and looked so ordinary in a way that you could never get away with on American television. The haunting, brooding score by Ólafur Arnalds very deservedly won him a BAFTA - it brings me a tear to my eye just hearing a snippet of it.

Life on Mars, The Bridge, Being Human, etc. I haven't seen one American remake of a quality European show that was worth watching. They've all been horrible caricatures, almost as if they were intentionally trying to make fun of the original.

Didn't know that The Bridge was a remake until now, but I must say it's a fantastic addition to the FX slate-mostly due to the outstanding performances from Ted Levine, Matthew Lillard and Demian Bichir. The addition of Franka Potente to the current season just adds to the fireworks. Diane Kruger's sexually impulsive and abrasive character is FAR too annoying, though.

There have been some photo's showing the cast shooting scenes for S2 and looks like the Mother of the victim from S1 is still playing a central role, so it doesn't look like they will just have a totally new case to solve. But I guess we'll have to wait and see.

From what I understand, this season will deal with the fallout from the case.  Personally, I do want to see what happens to all of the characters, especially Tennant's and Colman's.

Broadchurch wasn't even a particularly British show. There aren't many cultural references most Americans would have trouble with, and other than Tennant no one really has a thick accent. I know that Americans can be provincial and stupid, but we can't be so provincial and stupid that a cast with British accents instead of Texas twangs would fail here. Can we? Oh God, maybe we could...

Cthulhu_is_my_homeboy: menschenfresser: fusillade762: Pointless American remake is pointless.

Why is a remake of a perfectly good show that's already in English even necessary? Are we going to start having Massachusetts remakes of California TV shows, too? Maybe a Toronto version of a New York show? It just seems so utterly pointless.

Broadchurch wasn't even a particularly British show. There aren't many cultural references most Americans would have trouble with, and other than Tennant no one really has a thick accent.


David Tennant doesn't have a thick accent.

In interviews, it's pretty pronounced.
