Enjoyed this British comedy a great deal and have come to appreciate in particular the comedic talents of Katherine Parkinson, who has appeared in several imports I've liked. I don't understand why Whites only lasted six episodes. The snappy, dry wit is classic, the ability to make small things funny uncanny. Who would think to make a joke out of an eggless omelet? Since I do my viewing on Hulu, I'm able to add them again to my queue and go through them more than once. Whites is good enough to watch more than once -- and unfortunately there aren't that many domestic sitcoms I can say that about. Also unfortunate -- there are only the six episodes.
