I Like It, Please Don't Cancel Another Brilliant Series
19 March 2006 | by (canada) – See all my reviews

I'd like to see this show get a lot more respect from the CTV network. It would change my opinion on how they manage to skew shows into oblivion. It took a long time for it to finally get aired. Don't kid yourselves by thinking we the public don't pay-no-never-mind on how to read them-there newspapers. (also see below links)

The episodes were scattered all over to begin with. Who knew when to watch or find it? Please find a regular night for Robson Arms, give it a prime time slot, and keep it there. It's worth it, we like it, please don't compromise anything anymore with the show.

The episodes are great to watch. There are enough identifiably Canadian characters to find a niche with more viewers.The actors are top notch, the scripts are unique, and the opening songs with an acoustic guitar and voice, etc are quirky attention grabbers.
