We recently took a look on the Scoop at programmes we considered were cancelled prematurely (see here). These beloved televisual treats are gone but not forgotten, and yet in their stead we get the same shows over and over again. If sometimes TV bosses are too quick to call time on a show, does it follow that they could also be too generous and indulgent with others?
They might claim they’re providing us with what we want, but there are many occasions when we find we no longer want it anymore. Shows lose their way, crucial cast members leave and what was once so fresh and exciting becomes tired and stale. It’s time to point fingers, take numbers and get heavy with those shows that over-stayed their welcome.
