An American version of "Broadchurch"? Will it be as awful as the American version of "Life on Mars" or the American version of "Prime Suspect?" You know, when I was a kid, the networks assumed that we were intelligent enough to see British programs like "The Avengers," "Robin Hood," "The Saint," and "Secret Agent" just as they were, straight from England. Now all of a sudden Americans are too stupid to understand a British accent or a non-American setting? Or have the networks decided that Americans need to be dumbed down further?
