American television often looks across the pond for inspiration. Though the U.S. version of a British hit can be very successful (The Office, Three's Company), more than a few have gotten lost in translation (anyone remember Life on Mars or Coupling?).

But several seem very promising this winter season, such as teen drama Skins and Being Human, in which a vampire, ghost and werewolf live together in semi-harmony. Then there's Matt LeBlanc's  Episodes, appearing on both the BBC and Showtime, which satirizes the crossover experience.

Which "remake" show are you most looking forward to?
