Just finished the 1st season; reading though the comments I see a strong debate over the merits of the US vs. the UK version. I think both shows have strong merits if one considers the differences in our respective cultures. I think I like the US version better mainly b/c I remember the 1970s on this side of the pond and I've had exposure to the history of our police culture and how it has changed - something I don't have for the British police culture. That makes it easier for me to get into the US version. I will tend to agree however that most US remakes of UK shows are sadly lacking in quality - this just seems to be the exception that proves the rule.

Turned out to be one of my favorite shows. Although the plot is a bit confusing and odd the characters are what make the show. I seriously recommend watching it. 10/10

In comparison to the US version, this is a better show. The characters drive you to watch. 9/10

I remember the trailers for this show on TV and I thought WTF? This looks like the dumbest idea for a show ever. Decided to check out the first offering anyway as it was John Simm and it turned out to be one of the best shows I've ever seen. It IS a dumb idea but it so works anyway; largely due to the chemistry between the two leads. Having said that, the spin off Ashes To Ashes turned out to be the crappy show I feared this would be. They are poles apart, and as for the American version? Ouch.

The UK version is probably one of my best discoveries, picked up on because I'm such a huge Bowie fan. Gotta buy this, the american version was shit, but still the best cop show we ever aired.

Truly amazing show. The American version can not even begin to compare to this British masterpiece.
