    what about 'blimey'?
  • DysDys Member Posts: 436 Gifted
    Blimey is still used by some people who don't swear. My mum says blimey.

    Only sarcastically where we mean the absolute opposite.

    And Versa, watch their version of Dad's army, it's atrocious.

    Let's not forget how they ruined The IT crowd and The Inbetweeners too.

    You forgot Red Dwarf
  • ArixArix Member Posts: 865 Fabled
    Then again I saw some of the recent attemps at rebooting shows like Are You Being Served, and was disappointed. I mean the references were all there and it had a decent sense of continuity, but the attempt at copying the original show's sense of humor weemed like it was trying too hard

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. Let's back up a little bit. An AMERICAN version of:

    Red Dwarf?
    Dad's Army!?!

    wtf?
  • ArixArix Member Posts: 865 Fabled
    Red Dwarf had a single pilot episode, starring Jane Leeves as Holly. It was excruciating
  • ArixArix Member Posts: 865 Fabled
    Dads Army also had a 2016 movie
  • VersaleanVersalean Member Posts: 662 Mythical
    :'(
  • ArixArix Member Posts: 865 Fabled
    The movie was not American made

  • VersaleanVersalean Member Posts: 662 Mythical
    I'm literally confused as to how you could translate that specific story about the home guard into... Murica?

    Next question should be:

    Eating a sausage sandwich:
    Brown sauce
    Red sauce
    No sauce at all

    If they ask what brown sauce is, boot them


    Sausage square or standard sausage?
  • VersaleanVersalean Member Posts: 662 Mythical
    Wtf is a sausage square?

    It's ingrained in American culture to instinctively rebel when anyone from Britain tells us what to do and make fun of their hats/accents/teeth (pick one).

    You forgot their spelling. Definitely have to mock their excessive vowels and whatnot. It's important.
    You fourgout their spelling. Definitely have to mouck their excessive vuowels and whatnout. It's impourtant.

    Not the movie, which was also terrible, but yes there was an American version of Dad's Army.

    It sucked, awfully.

    Do people who lived there for 6 months, plan to return after they're finished with their studies, are masters of the self-check-out at Tesco and regularly import large quantities of Twinings since not all of their blends are sold in Germany count as well?

    Anyone who's ever been able to navigate "unexpected item in the bagging area!" without needing staff assistance counts.

    Soon she will claim to be able to put up a deckchair without trapping her thumb or that when she drops butteres bread, it lands butter side up.

    May as well say she walks on water

    I define master as 'it likes me so much that it constantly wants to talk to me' :P

    True story, she's so good at it she was helping other people at the last UK lusternia meet.

    She's a master.

    Does it come with the same condescending female voice in a Queen's English accent though?

    ... I just had a British company with no US presence whatsoever send me an email with the subject "Independence Day Whiskies" with the tagline "Celebrate the 4th of July with our great selection of whiskies" - I'm not sure if they're taking the piss, they're targeting their advertising very well, or you all are just that glad to be rid of the colonies. Either way, there's a 21-year Glen Grant for less than £90 I'm tempted to grab.
