unfair to us Yanks
11 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to say that I'm American and I LOVED Meadowlands (AKA Cape Wrath). It came on Showtime this year and it sucks to find out there wont be anymore episodes. So what was the point of them bringing it here if they aren't going to continue it. That's the 1 peeve I have about BBC programs, they cancel them (like HEX, which I also LOVED) and tease us with the leftovers a year later. At least Jekyll wrapped itself up in 6 episodes even though they left the door open to continue the series. That was great too. The Brits are definitely putting out better entertainment these days. I just wish we could get them at the same time. Also I hope Torchwood isn't over after the first 13 episodes. I like that too - and I guess I'll get sucked in and let down on that one too. At least Dr. Who's still around.
