    The Bill rips off Smallville!!!

    I dont know if many of you are aware of an English police drama called The Bill. It ain't great but its slightly superior to the other stuff around. In the advert for tonight's episode the dialogue went:

    Weird Officer: I want those camera's out of here!
    Bald Officer: And i want a ponytail. Disappointments abounds!

    Smallville with Lex talking to Bart: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TA9ihUk-HNw

    Oh Come on! That dailogue is a rippoff!

    It has to be, doesn't it? One of the writers must watch the show and thought they could get away with it!

    Good catch! I haven't watched The Bill in years but I used to love it in the days of DC Bolton, etc. Good times. A closet Smallville fan amongst the writers

    A lot of the, shall we say poorer quality, British shows steal from other prograammes although not usually quite as blatantly as this. I remember Casualty did a storyline that was exactly the same as one from Grey's Anatomy not long ago too.
