Another UK show changed for the U.S.
There's many British shows now running in the USA that have done very well. The Office, Dancing With the Stars, etc. This one is a reconstruction of a decent Brit sitcom.. however, not a long running program (White Van Man) that aired for a two series run in the UK. White Van Man has a higher IMDb rating and deserves it. I watched it last year. While I realize that British humor and accepted language there cannot be televised to an American broadcast TV audiences; in cleaning it up and casting it differently they've taken away what could have been a very funny series. The addition of the Aunt, cousin and neighbor in the first episode really doesn't serve any purpose and it's wasted talent for Leah Remini who in the right program can be very funny. I don't give this a full season and certainly don't think it will be renewed. There was a lot more construction gone awry in the original and it gave a reason for the show to be about small business one van handymen.
