As you may know, Dick Wolf (best name in show business after
“The only thing these men and women love more than seeking justice… is wearing scarves.”
FANTASTIC. I’ll keep this in mind the next time some pretentious anglophile expresses disgust that their favorite British show got an American remake. “Oh yeah? Well, the limeys ruined ‘Law & Order’ with scarves!”
(Side note: Since mocking British people in the most juvenile way possible is arguably my favorite form of humor, I have to add that Conan O’Brien’s interview of Ricky Gervais last night was one of the funniest things I’ve seen all week. I’ll add video here as soon as it becomes available online.)
UPDATE: Here’s the Conan-Gervais interview, as promised. The relevant conversation begins at 2:44, with Conan’s insulting British accent kicking in at 4:10. It’s awesome. I think Gervais is genuinely bothered by it.
