Fantasist & Futurist

Maybe that is true, but I liked it.Lets face it, there was too many weak episodes and poor cliched plotting.
Exactly, don't you ever catch Eastenders or Coronation Street, and they win awards for their interminable drivel. This series had great potential and left many unanswered questions. It also only followed them for a few weeks; what happened in the following years? And the characters were very well drawn. They were actually believable and behaved like real stupid people would behave in real life.The only problem is that it'll be replaced by more lowest-common-denominator TV.
We could, but it will make no difference because the people who make the decisions are so far removed from the creative process that they don't understand or even give a damn. They are accountants interested in viewing figures and people want "Big Brother", "Jeremy Kyle", "Gladiators" and "Wife Swap" and "The Worlds Best Videoed Police Car Chases". It is our fault, because if we didn't watch these things they wouldn't show them.Can we write them (the BBC) and try to influence them?
