Billie Piper A Snore In The USA?

Billie Piper seems to have sent the US critics to sleep, in the main, as Belle De Jour in The Secret Diary Of A Callgirl. As I've said previously, it did nothing for me as I'd already been reading the blog which I thought was far better. You do have to give Showtime credit for trying to provide entertainment from other countries, unfortunately British Tv is pretty dire at the moment across the board.

I live in the USA, and I must say I really enjoy British TV, and I thought The Secret Diary Of A Call Girl was actually really interesting. Sure, not the best, but still interesting, and well directed IMO. I was happy to see Billie Piper in it aswell, I've been a fan for awhile now. I really do hope British TV becomes more popular here in the USA, they have a lot of great shows.
