    Yeah. I was really sad to see it go too. But it lasted for 5 seasons, so I guess it's not bad becuase I can just get the DVDs and watch all of them. At least this is better than this drama clip I saw recently.

    I mean, this is a Spanish flick, and the puppet (Fash) can't even speak or do much. Yes, there's drama in every show you see nowadays, even in QAF. But at least all the characters talked, and made things interesting. I just wonder if this is the turning point where TV shows are going to have puppets or characters that don't talk just like Fash. It'd be weird if that days comes.

    That was so funny! I love it when "Fashalito" tries to caress her face. So weird.

    Never the American version, but I liked the British one.

    I saw it.. i think it had a bit more than the UK version. I liked Sharon Gless, in it. Fine actress. It still made me cringe. I'm not homophobic but.... ok that might be me making a cop out for being rude. I'm not though. I just can not bare to see 'gay sex'. Put it down to my sexual repression. :leaving:

    I think it broke new ground.. but left us with Russel T davies making a mockery of TV with Torchwood and Doctor Who...

    I tried watching the British version, but I could not enjoy it as much as I did the American version.

    Amaaaaaaaaazing show. I'm trying to get the British one, because it is the original one, but the American one is amazing. I like it when Emmet and that htough football player are together. It is the best show in the world. if you ask me.
