But i have to ask myself, why do i continually pick and enjoy shows that seem to have a miserly six episodes a year, Hustle, The It crowd, Screen wipes......
Yeah 6 episodes just isn't enough when you like a show. Then again I think american tv goes too far the other way having 20+ eps a season. I can make shows drag, and encourages padding (a lot of passing in some instances)
Personally I think Dr Who has it right with 13 episodes (14 if you count the Christmas special) but this might be a holdover from my love of Blakes 7, which also had 13 ep series.
