MTV Stealin' More From The Brits!

But don't try this at home, England! We think whatever version of the Jersey Shore you'd come up with would just FAIL!

Along with developing their own version of the hit-Brit show Skins, MTV is reportedly ordering a pilot remake of The Inbetweeners. The critically acclaimed teen comedy is still in the casting stages, but MTV is pretty excited to acquire the rights, saying that the show is "unique and bold, its approach to contemporary teen coming-of-age stories is universal and simply hilarious, and it will resonate immensely with our core demographic."

We wouldn't mind watching it, if only to see how they will eff it up royally!

Are U excited to see MTV try and screw with the show?

    Whaaat? this show is great! but it won't work in the american version. Why are they looking for the next "office"?



  2. 2

    Whatever thhe show is funny but mtv will mess it up. they shoukd stick to reality shows.



  3. 3

    Wouldnt "Skins" be like undressed?

    (Undressed, was on MTV, which to me resembles skins.)



  4. 4

    They're going to ruin this show. Some things should be left alone and this show is one. Bring it uncensored to the US.



  5. 5

    It'll be shit. MTV wankers!



  6. 6

    MTV will eff both of these fantastic shows up. Inbetweeners is so hilarious but part of the hilarity comes from their constant use of foul language and frank sex talk. Since we prude Americans can't take hearing that kind of language on TV, this will not live up to the original.



  7. 7

    Bus Wankers!!!!!

    MTV would kill this show. the Inbetweeners is one of the funniest show I've watched in ages.

    People. YouTube it and watch the original or better demand the British version moves over.

    Oh Friend, football friend! (thumbs up)



  8. 8

    Never heard of either show. Please, we don't need anymore shitty shows from the UK.



  9. 9

    The Americans won't be able to pull it off.
    These programmes are centred around the British way of life and how crude we are.

    Re: Fletcher – i actually think UK shows are pretty good they have great television, and yea mtv will fuck this show up.



  11. 11

    Not Cool MTV! First it won't translate, the reasons the show is funny won't be allowed on American TV unless its on HBO. Second you can catch the original on BBC America anyway.



  12. 12

    this show works, because it is British. the humour, what happens in the show, the stories everything. i really do not see how it can adapt.



  13. 13

    I really dont think this show will work in the US… I mean how could you replace a word like clunge!!!



  14. 14

    NOOOOOO…. just broadcast the British version!!!!!!!



  15. 15

    This could never work here in the states…. LEAVE IT ALONE!!!! Its freakin great where ot at!!!!



  16. 16

    no!!!!!MTV is gonna majorly FUCK UP these two great british shows! i think MTV needs some new creative ppl on their staff instead of "developing their own version"



  17. 17

    MTV will make it awful so it matches everything else on it terrible network.



  18. 18

    They can try to re-make anything they want..it will always be shit! Re-makes are ridiculous and they kill what little entertainment we have left. Good luck with inbetweeners, the humour comes from their British slang.



  19. 19

    a British version of Jersey Shore… it would be amazing! Have you ever seen the Brits party … epic! :)



  20. 20

    Are you effing kidding me!! The Inbetweeners is the funniest show on tv @ the moment!!! They are just gona fuck it up!!



  21. 21

    We have our version of Jersey Shore starting this week - It's called The Only Way is Essex..



  22. 22

    what is wrong with just showing the one we have now?

    Sorry guys but you won't be able to make a show anything like the Inbetweeners. They would kill it just like they are about to kill Skins.



  23. 23

    i love inbetweeners!!! but they shouldnt do an american version!!! they should just air the original show, the cast is brilliant and it simply wouldnt work with other people!



  24. 24

    this is gonna be so rubbish!
    please don't ruin something amazing as the inbetweeners.



  25. 25

    Re: Fletcher – I love and watch mainly American tv shows but the humour can be simple and obvious. So no British shows are not shit. The UK knows what real comedy is. Anyway I would like to clarify i'm not slating American tv shows just defending my country ;)



  26. 26

    uh god can't mtv realise that they can't redo every single british show! Inbetweeners



  27. 27

    The show is epic. Another FAIL from MTV. Leave it out!

    MTV wankers



  28. 28

    This is an EPIC show! However, no offence, but i dont think americans will understand it…Its a typical silly English show that shows the English way of life…PLEASE MTV DONT DO IT! Mtv will just ruin it!



  29. 29

    this show is hilarious and MTV will do NO justice to it!



  30. 30

    nooooooo! don't let them take the inbetweeners! they're gonna ruin it, why can't they just start airing the uk version?



  31. 31

    :-O skins is one thing but the inbetweeners!!!!!!! americans arent funny!



  32. 32

    arent you content with ruining skins? the inbetweeners is one of the best things on tv



  33. 33

    They will fuck this show up.



  34. 34

    The inbertweeners is a BRITISH comedy
    Skins is a BRITISH drama
    America will fuck it right up :/
    "Feisty one you are!" Best quote ever! (inbertweeners)



  35. 35

    Re: FletcherI am American and I LOVE this shows. I mean shows like Gavin and Stacey suck for example, but I love the Inbetweeners and hearing MTV is doing it is worse. They need to stick with shit like the Jersey Shore, leave good shows alone!!! They will make both shows douchey and stupid and the inbetweeners will not work with anything but British actors and Britishisms. Skins will just be a shit version of Degrassi(It wouldn't even resemble skins honestly)



  36. 36

    Re: Unitedfan1 I agree, the comedy is in the british presentation. At least the Office was done by NBC, which is respectable and gave it a better shot. They also had great writers and a superior supporting cast. MTV will just make pure shit. Hire people who can't act but look good and it will be shit.



  37. 37

    Re: Lagerfeld.Americans are funny. I am American and I don't think MTV should do this either, but don't be a fucking douche and insult Americans because of it. I love the Inbetweeners but I love our comedy shows as well and so does my brit boyfriend, so shut up.



  38. 38

    Hell no,they are gunna completly shit alover this masterpeice.WHYYYY?? Stick to making you own lame-o shows.FFS
