Showtime Goes Meta

How interesting that Showtime has a new show (Episodes) about how American television rips off a British show, which airs after another new show, Shameless, which itself is - ahem - an adaptation of a British show by the same name.

Incidentally, I haven't decided yet if I like the show or not. Right now it's uncomfortably close to a voyeuristic view of the colorful lives of the working class and their "funny" drunk patriarch. Only his drunkenness is much less funny and much more sad. Guess I'll have to wait and see how it develops.
