Remake is pretty good, especially for a US channel, but the Aussie original much darker.

I hardly watch any tv that isn't sport or movies, but this selection is essential viewing. The shows are pretty diverse but all evoke emotion, push boundaries and provoke thought.

Essential is pushing it, given this is TV but these are cool shows that fill a gap.
