I agree, the writing is good and well acted. They used Francis Urqhart's signature saying in the first couple of episodes but dropped it, which was a shame.
The pace of the US version is much slower than the UK. 13 hours for the US compared 4 for the UK.
They have, also, made the hero MUCH less ruthless! I don't think the American audience can handle the hero doing what Francis Urqhart did at the end of the first series in the UK.
