Reason #1 Why I Don't Get BBC America
And The Office has been acclaimed in the US, becoming more popular with the "chattering classes" than middle America, according to Hollywood Reporter magazine's UK bureau chief Stuart Kemp.
That is partly because adventurous viewers on the east and west coasts are more likely to subscribe to BBC America - and middle America "would not get" the humour, he said.
One of the reasons why we "would not get" the humor is because we don't buy subcriptions to networks who talk down to us as if we all grew up in some sort of backwater barnyard. Think about that, BBC "America," before you go clamoring to your precious "chattering classes." The rest of us get British humor just fine. What we don't get is the arrogance that comes free with every order.
