Has anyone watched this?  How does it compare to the American version?

It's quite different.  Francis Urquhart speaks directly to the camera regularly.  It is very witty and less grim.  F.U's wife is a very minor character and there is nothing about her adulteries or building her own power base separate from his.  The first season is followed fairly closely by the Netflix series; the journalist played by Kate Mara as played by Susanna Harker; but after that it diverges pretty dramatically.  The plotting is less intricate, the characters a bit less developed, the tone far less serious, but I like it very much.
I was born to ask "why was I born?"

I am gonna check it out when. I am done with season 2. 

It looks to be less time consuming.
