Topic: The Baker and the Beauty vs. Beauty and the Baker

https://next-episode.net/the-baker-and-the-beauty

Watched the first episode of the American version.
Not funny in the slightest, gave up half way through.
Why on earth not show the Israeli one (https://next-episode.net/beauty-and-the-baker), it has subtitles !!
Oh Dear !!!!

I've just finished watching the original Israeli one, TOTALLY superior in every way.

If you can watch the original, with subtitles,  great acting and it's a real belly laugh from start to finish.

You will find that the Americans can't do other country remakes very well.  God knows they keep trying though.

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

I've added links and adjusted the title.

I didn't find the trailer for the new show appealing and couldn't find a trailer for the original right away.

I guess there are multiple reasons: many American viewers seem to strongly dislike subtitles, the original version has to be licensed (so no bragging rights for a US production), and you can't use well-known US actors/actresses to promote something you only licensed vs. promote something that features them.

But but The Office was good, great even.
