When I was a young girl in America I watched The Avengers and Journey To The Unknown just as handily as any Canadian kid. I say Canadian because of North America, those brilliant divertissements came fron the UK and we all seemed to 'get it' without any remakes. I am of course completely underplaying the fact that we 'got' exotic, it wasn't 'us' and we still got it. So sheesh, why must it all be translated into "American" now for American audiences? It is all devo now. Devolution.
