    Having watched and loved Broadchurch, I REALLY REALLY hope Gracepoint isn’t just an exact retelling of Broadchurch. I mean really, Broadchurch was aire here in America on BBCA so there is not really a need to make an american Version unless, that is, they can change it up, and make it better. But from the looks of it thus far it seems like they are hellbent on copying Broadchurch down to the characters. I guess it is still honestly too early to tell, but i have a bad feeling about this. Why do TV execs have to regurgitate good shows? Remakes, are hardly ever better or even as good as originals, with very few exceptions.

      Yeah, a carbon copy seems unnecessary. I don’t mind them cloning the characters, but they should come up with a new murder to solve.
