    Thanks to video.google.com you can!!! :wiggle: I can't believe how close the stories are nearly word for word, on the one I'm watching just different people saying them, that's kind of a dissapointment, but the accent makes up for it all!

    The UK version is far superior, much better production and a better casting of characters. I was very disappointed when the US version came out as it just wasn't as good.

    I used to travel to Manchester regularly, maybe I understand the culture more than say Toronto... oops Pittsburgh

    ...I'm gonna disagree. Yes, I liked the original UK version, but I LUVED the US spin on things. Okay, so we outright stole the first season, buuuut the changes we made were brilliant.

    Stuart was way better than Brian. Could they have picked a more unattractive guy for Brian if they tried? Don't think so.

    I will admit that Brian got a little rough looking towards the end

    :mamoru: It's not as apparent as I remembered but as with most unibrows it changes depending on lighting. [​IMG]

    Oh and I dunno but my brother found the first season in the used dvds at this video game store called power gamer. It was like $11 there! I've seen it on ebay for like $40.

    The UK version is readily available at Blockbuster Video.

    Maybe my aversion to the US version is both the incredible unattractiveness of Brian (I would rather use my hand, or even RyRy's hand than be with that guy), and the fact the locations are very well known to me and how they portray places is to unrealistic.

    If you could see the real Babylon you would be so surprised. (It seats less than 100 people... it is a martini bar)

    Oh cool I just added it to my queue, I'm digging blockbuster online a lot more than Netflix.

    :rofl: You act like RyRy's hand is a bad thing. Oh I didn't know they actually based it on a real place. Does it look anything like it?

    Brian = the hotness! :naughty: My hand's nice and clean! I even shaved them this week! :mamoru: Although you gotta use the right hand! My left hand has this nasty cyst on it and I can't use it much for grasping things. :wtc: I've always wanted to come to CA, not only to see where QAF was filmed but also to say I've been outside of the Midwest, and the South! :wiggle:

    My only issue with RyRy's hand is I never know where it has been before :noes:.

    As for Babylon - not even close. The real one is an intimate martini bar, quite small - 2 floors in an old house. The QAF Babylon is based on Fly, a dance club just outside of the village although the TV version is actually a soundstage now (they moved there 3rd season).

    If you come to Toronto, I would be happy to give you the tour - except for the bathhouses.. not my scene. Although with the way RyRy is keeping me happy, can't say as I would need to go :naughty:

    Lol, I shudder at the thought, it's probably covered in disease. Yeah I knew they filmed at Fly in the first couple seasons. Tempting but I'm not even close to being legal. Oh, but the legal age in Canada is 18 right?

    The US writers didn't base it on a real place. Only stole the name, because it's cool. ;)
