I like the later episodes better, but I think that is probably because they are in HD. Nevertheless If TG UK is on...the TV WILL be on BBCA.I honestly like the earlier episodes better. Granted, they aren't as crazy...but they feel more real and much less produced and scripted. BUT at the same time, any episode that is on, I will watch it.
And I do like the US version as well...just not nearly as much.
