Life On Mars, The US Version

Yes, it's a clip from the US version of Life On Mars.

Okay, two questions that bemuse me about US TV:

  1. Why do US broadcasters feel the need to remake UK TV shows?
  2. When will they learn that voice-overs are cheesey?

On (1) is perhaps that they patronisingly assume all Americans are stupid and won't get a UK show? Or is it a money thing, and they get more if they remake it?

On (2) probably never.

I'm an american who was a fan of the UK version. While it appears that they are sticking kinda close to the script of the original's first episode. The "Starsky and Hutch" music kinda killed interest in it for me.
