Cape Wrath - A great Programme, a great loss
7 August 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I thought I'd add a comment to this to show my support. I've been reading all the comments that people have written about this show and have to question the level of peoples intelligence these days.

This is the sort of programme you have to think about, it keeps you guessing, who did what, what are their pasts and it leaves you looking forward to the next episode because there are lots of questions. One comment was made about the show being rushed, what do you expect, you couldn't keep up so they had to tie everything up in 8 episodes.. Impossible even for the most acclaimed of writers..

I think there's a big difference between the English comments and the American, I'm English myself and agree with my fellow Brits. This is a really good series, it's a shame that it's being cancelled, it could have gone on longer, should have gone on longer...

Today television is full of American programmes going for the simple and often derogatory humour, the only thing out there comparable to Cape Wrath is Lost, look what happened to that, they messed us about whilst the last season was on and kept changing the times/days.. Why? I think it's because people have forgotten how to think about a programme and how, in a way, to enjoy TV for what it should be used for. No more do people want shows that you have to think about and tune in to next week to keep the story going. No, we'd rather have things like Scrubs, Ugly Betty and What about Bryan so we can sit there, not have to think, move and possibly even breath, oh and obviously we just want to watch people laughing at fat people, people that don't fit in to 'society' and people sleeping with their best mates wife.. We don't have to think about things like that, instead we just watch with a bit of dribble coming out of our mouths and a bag of crisps at our side..

I want more things on the TV that make me think, like Cape Wrath, I'm sorry you Americans didn't like it, it's English, us English like it.. Let us enjoy using our brains and watching programmes like Cape Wrath and Lost that leave us at the edge of our seat, keep us guessing and hungry for more!
