I am very disappointed that the show was, or in our (Australia) case, has been cancelled, as it only started airing two weeks ago. I normally check out the first episode of every new series to see if I like it or not, and I am kicking myself that I didn't do the same for American Embassy. I missed out on the first weeks' episodes, yes, episodes. Because this series was not aired once or twice a week, but for three nights in a row! How fantastic! So I missed the first three episodes, and the fourth one that was aired the following week. When I saw the fifth episode, I thought it was great! I wasn't that worried that I missed the first four, because there was the rest of the season ahead! The show was (cliche) "Ally McBeal Moves to London" but without the fantasy/imaginations and the dancing baby, which was, quite frankly, very annoying and ugly. So I watched the sixth episode as well, and when I got the T.V. Guide for the next week, I was disappointed that it was not on at all. So I ring up the station and was told that only 6 episodes were ever made and that all had been aired. I was very disappointed, and not just because the show was a refreshing change from the usual lawyers: Doug Roach (David Cubitt) for the ladies and Emma Brody (Arija Bareikis) for the men are also great incentives to watch the show! I am also lobbying that the show be brought back, and that the first episodes be re-aired so that I can catch up! I only hope that the producers and writes will read this and see how many devoted fans there are out there from all over the world!
