On TV progs only which ones make you feel that because I've never felt that? I don't watch a lot of American TV so I haven't seen any of this Sopranos or Breaking Bad stuff everyone was going on about.
Interestingly, the two TV programmes you name are very good examples of what I'm saying.
It's all subjective, of course, but in my opinion The Sopranos and Breaking Bad are superior to any TV dramas ever produced in Britain.
If I were saying that everything (or even most things) the Americans do on TV and in film were superior to everything or even most things the British do, that would indeed make for a highly controversial thread - but I'm not saying that or anything like it.
I'm saying that both countries produce brilliant films and TV and they both produce utterly rubbish films and TV but the very best films and TV come from America.
American remakes of British TV programmes and films are quite often dreadful but they do occasionally come up with a superior product - an example being House of Cards.
I'm not putting any of the above forward as a fact - it's simply my opinion.
