I really did not value British TV until 'PBS America' arrived.

What we get here (in England) is a very limited version of what you have. This is what I've noticed, so far. Most of the documentaries are incredibly boring. Much, much worse than ours (the problem with ours is too many endless talking heads). There was one on Victoria that gave me jet lag and then a thing about flea markets and it was shocking how bad it was. So dull. Lighten up! Crack a joke sometimes! Get some fucking homosexuals on maybe. DO SOMETHING! There's a sort of antiques thing, people buy stuff and then sell it at auction and they compete to see who gets the most profit...we have a similar thing, but our antiques shows (all 1500 of them) always feature quirky, jokey smiling folks. Our shows always have a sort of warmth. The American ones everyone looks sour-faced and I've noticed this with the American Antiques Roadshow. Awful soulless locations and dreary boring dealers. Our Antiques Roadshow is usually set at a stately home or a place of significance and beauty. Everyone laughs all the time and there are many characters and obvious eccentrics. Then there's a thing called Test Kitchen...from this I've learned some useful tips and the man in the bow tie is sort of likeable,I guess... but it's too stark in that horrid kitchen. Everyone looks like they're at school (& not enjoying it). What the fuck is going on? I love American humour & Americans are often warm and friendly people, so why does this not translate onto the way they make these shows?
