After the first season of the US series aired, I checked out the British version. I thought the first season was great, but I felt the other two weren't quite on the same level. Maybe the second season was just too "British" (revolving around FU vs the monarchy) for me to find much interest in its primary storyline. The third series was FU dealing with his own mistakes... It seemed like the character suddenly became very weak and I found that hard to swallow, amongst other weird things going on. "Let's put lots of sex in it and maybe people won't notice how absurd this is."
