By the way, I am still viewing the show due to loving the old series and the actual story but sorry to say Kliis compared to original making of this non of theses actors seem bad-ass at all. In the original it feels so real, the actors seem like out of real life criminal family; you know the type you see get busted after 20years of being chased by the police. All i remember clearly though is in the original the cop she ended up cheating with was soooo hot and understandable why she might cheat

This show is actually really good and I don't think it's bad at all. Re-makes are made all the time out of every old show (ex. 90210). I don't think it's a bad idea to re-create a new show that might attract even more newer viewers with the same concept and new cast. I was a big fan of the old 90210, but I also accepted the newer version even if it wasn't as great. I'm really impressed how good the actors are in Scoundrels and it's going good so far. If there was a dislike button, I'd click it because you are too narrow-minded.

Oh ya I forgot to mention ... America already tried remaking this series in 08 (Good Behavior) and it didn't fly then, despite having an even better cast then they do now (Catherine O'Hara, Mae Whitman, Treat Williams, DJ Qualls, Gary Cole, Jeffrey Tambor, Eddie Kaye Thomas) Need I say more. haha

Outrageous Fourtune (the original NZ series) is AMAZIIIING! This series has absolutely no chance on ABC. period. Had they pitched it to showcase or hbo, maybe ... but not ABC.The acting in the Scoundrels pilot was just terribly cheesy. I was so dissapointed, especially with Cal (aka Van) who, in OF, is my favourite character! At first I was sooo excited to see Patrick Flueger (the 4400) had been cast ... but as it turns out he's def no Antony Starr! lolOverall ABC just made the whole thing way too 'clean'. They're supposed to be white trash, not the brady bunch lmao

I hope the original is way better. I tried to watch this and - despite a not terrible American cast - thought it was horrendous!
