UK Dataloungers - ABC passes on US version of Only Fools and Horses. How was the UK version?
The US version was to star John Leguizamo in the lead role
So what did we miss in the US? Was the UK version any good?
- The British version is a beloved classic. CBS already did an American version with Bill Cosby in the '90s which tanked. Maybe it was NBC.
- R1 that Cosby Show in the 90s was based on the British sitcom One Foot in the Grave.
- Oh, that was One Foot In The Grave. Only Fools... is an even bigger British classic. It's a bit like Sanford and Son.
- Would John Leguizamo be right for the lead role?
- Oh, Sanford and Son was an American remake of Steptoe and Son. Only Fools... centres around a junkyard too. I think.
- British comedy is best left to the British. Yes, I mean The Office, too.
