    Ditto. I really enjoyed The Paradise, but just couldn't get into Mr S at all -- can't stand the title character.

    I think "cancelled" is a slight exaggeration though. British series aren't designed like North American ones, with automatic expectation of 7+ years. Many are only ever designed to run a single season, and it's only when they're hugely popular -- and when all the principals want to come back -- that they're brought back for more.

    ETA: We will at least get more Paradise on this side of the pond (or, I'm assuming we will), as PBS has only aired season 1 so far and there's a second 8-episode season that's already aired in the UK. So yay for that! Looking forward to the continuation of the story, and especially seeing Denise take on more of a leadership role at the store (I hope!).

    Neither British theater no Benedict seemed to be on PBS in NYC. Bummer, but might as well, I am completely swamped between intense work and Olympics. Hopefully they'll have it online, or repeat it!

    I quite liked it. There were a few things that had me wondering "were they really able to do that in 1941?" but overall it was well done. Some nice character stuff, as well as a nice reference to what I have no difficulty believing was the political agenda during wartime.

    It's listed as a one-off on imdb, but they definitely left things open if they wanted to do more.

    Really liked it. And I usually am not interested in WW2 stories.

    I just spotted that the latest -- and last -- season of Doc Martin will start on Mar 21 on the Seattle PBS. I think some of the other affiliates have already begun airing this season.

    I personally thought they should have ended the series at the end of season 4 ... but I'm still happy to have more.

    Did you catch Sampson from Downton Abbey? I saw the season 2 of The Paradise and hated it.

    Has everyone been enduring begging season. I'm sorry but I am so tired of Suzi Orman, Wayne Dyer and all the others. My local stations had a "classical music" program. Turned out it was so they could sell the CDs. It's like one long infomercial week.

    As long as Sam West is on, will keep watching Selfridge.
