I was clicking around last night and came across an episode of the Shameless, the UK Channel 4 show currently running in what I believe is the second season on Sundance Channel.
I wrote about the show previously, and about the US remake being attempted by E.R.‘s John Wells.
Well, first I gotta tell you that there was a stretch of time from about the 28 minute mark to the 36 minute mark that I didn’t understand a fricking word they said. Anyone. Any member of the cast. It was like they were speaking a different language. and it wasn’t only then, I would say for about 3/8th of the time I didn’t get what they were saying.
Now, you know I don’t read subtitles unless it’s something more high-minded than this, so I wasn’t about to put on the closed captioning, but I suggest you do if you want to know what’s going on.
Other than that, not incredibly impressed.
Doesn’t John Wells have a more interesting project to work on? If not, will someone please send him a good script?
