Me: I can't wait to see ABC's Life on Mars!Pretentious Friend: The BBC version was better.Me: Wait, have you already seen ABC's remake? (Hint: It premieres Thursday, Oct. 9 at 10 pm/ET on ABC, so obviously he hasn't.)PF: Well, the British one was great.Me: But it hasn't been released on DVD in the States and you've never been to England. How did you see it?PF: Well, I've heard it's better.Me: I heard it was very good, but I just watched the pilot episode of the ABC version, and it's also very good.PF: Scones are better than bagels.Me: What?!PF: Nothing, chap. You Yanks wouldn't understand.Me: You're from New Jersey!PF: Excuse me, I have to go to the loo.If you'd like to compare, BBC America will be running a marathon of BBC's Life on Mars on Sunday, Oct. 5 beginning at 1 pm/ET.
