Torchwood : crap.
Life on Mars : a travesty compared to the origina, which was awesome (seriously go and watch it it really is that good).
The office : I prefered the Uk version, but people are kinda on both sides here.
Red Dwarf : crap.
Top Gear : the American hosts are the most annoying and loud people I've ever seen, even more than Jeremy Clarkson, and that's saying something.
The Only Fools and Horses remake will be a joke and complete failure; or maybe it will do average for a season and die, having lost all comedy and gone "gritty" with drug dealings going sour or *shudder* stoner humor. Either way it won't end well.

MUST RALLY THE TROOPS.
For serious: Sherlock is great great greeeeaaaat. Please don't ruin it with Jane Watson or whatever you're calling her CBS you bloody hamfisted cretins.
I don't think the US Sherlock is quite a remake of the UK one as it is just a similar idea. To modernize the Sherlock Holmes stories. Still, it most likely will never be as good as Sherlock. God damn, that series is so amazing.
The guys behind Sherlock have stated they'll be watching CBS like a hawk to make sure they don't rip off any of their intellectual property.
I'm open for many interpretations of Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett's will forever remain the best) but I can't imagine watching one that takes him away from London (if the american version even intends to do that). Non-Brit Downey Jr. playing Holmes is one thing, moving the setting to the US would be super lame.
CBS IS planning to move the setting to America, but Holmes will still be from England.
Here's a quote from cbs:
Elementary will see Johnny Lee Miller’s Holmes – breathe easy, everybody, he’s still English – as a former consultant to Scotland Yard whose drug addiction brings him to a rehabilitation center in NYC.
