Who in their right mind would cancel this ?

I saw the Pilot for THE AMERICAN EMBASSY when I was channel surfing at a friends house. From the moment it started I was glued to the set. Having traveled to England twice makes me appreciate how cool it is to see an American TV show being filmed in such a cool place.

The other plot involved the main character, Emma Broady, leaving behind a broken Engagement and becoming the new Vice Console to the Embassy in Britain. She meets her cool transvestite neighbor, who can often give her eye opening views about the world around us. She also works with `Q' ( The Boss ) and had a very interesting love Triangle with ( Lord )Jack Wellington and Doug Roach ( CIA ).

The Narration of the show usually followed the theme of Emma writing e-mail to her sister, Julia, which turned out to be a very strong first person viewpoint.

After the Events of Sept 11th 2001, This show, of course, had to feature a Terrorism theme. The continuing Arc involved tracking down a terrorist group who had placed a car bomb outside the embassy in the pilot. Each week, we where not only treated to the witty yet realistic storylines involving the funny and lovable Emma Broady and her colleagues, but we where given a sort of "Update" on the status of the search for the terrorists.

I don't have Cable at home, so every Monday night I had to go down to the Gym where I workout and watch THE AMERICAN EMBASSY while working out on a treadmill for an hour ( It was a wonderful motivator to keep going ).

This show was a winner and a pleasure to watch from the start!

Everyone I know who watched it fell in love with it. I became addicted to it and after the effort I have had to put into watching it you can imagine how disappointed I was to show up and be stuck with, in my opinion, the worst show on tv : EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND!

Whoever the network suits are who pulled the plug on this is should be lined up and shot! With FOX's Lousy programming these days and the complete lack of any publicity for this show are they surprise that the rating weren't good at first ?

The American Embassy was one of the best tv-shows of recent years. If the people at FOX judge their work by numbers instead of Quality then lets hope they are soon replaced!
