There is an American remake of Skins. Apparently it's causing protest groups and general disgust over there, which I think if pretty funny. I checked out the first episode, and it looks like they have pretty much reshot it using the same script. They've made a couple of changes, and it;s not as good because it's the wrong people, which is totally weird, but apart from that the first episode at least, is completely the same.
I kind of wonder why they bothered. Why not show the original version? Unless there's going to be more changes later, I guess.
