Yeah, it's one of those double edged swords. Peep Show, The IT Crowd, Spaced all only had like 6 episode seasons. They ended up being great and kind of 'die young' rather than what happens with US shows that get worn out and a bit cliché

I think the biggest problem is US audiences have been dumbed down to the point where they are told what they want to watch and just accept it and also accept the fact that a 60 minute program is about 35% commercials, and then there's the god awful "Coming up next" previews before and after each commercial break. Have TV audiences gotten that dumb that they have to be told before a commercial break what's coming up after the break and be told after the break what they just got thru watching 4 minutes ago before the ad break? I suppose that's probably just another way to eat up time and make the actual program time shorter and save money.

Thats just network tv though, there are so many awesome shows from HBO showtime etc etc with none of that crap

Glad you mentioned it, wouldn't be the first time I wondered how much better the US show could be if it were on a premium cable channel vs a network channel that has to bow to advertisers.

This is what I think of when I watch the US version (and most American shows)

It's basically why I love Netflix.
