Pod Stallions 89: US Remakes of British Shows

“What do ‘Fawlty Towers’, ‘On the Buses’ and ‘Open All Hours’ have in common? If you answered ‘They’re all classic UK shows that got crappy US remakes’, you’d be right! But you’d have to add, ‘Brian & Jason also know way too much about it’. For every ‘All in the Family’, there are a dozen ‘Amanda’s By the Sea’s, and we cover a ton in the new Pod Stallions. Once again, the topic you didn’t know you needed, ‘Bad Cover Versions: US Misses of UK Hits’. (Plus, lots of detours along the way). Listen so you’ll know the eventual remake of our show will be crap! “

Special thanks to Zachary of Magnificent Kaboom for the animated title sequence!
