1. They Americanized it extremely well

Compared to other US reshoots of imported programs it maintains the story cohesion while presenting it convincingly as if it were a US show. Perhaps because they didn't change much at all but the actors and some slang and local place names. The comparison between this and, say, the putrid mess they made of Being Human by trying to make everyone a sexy pretty thing and forgetting what humor is, shows how and how not to do it.
