I wonder why the Americans never took to Last of the Summer Wine - it certainly had a heck of a lot of episodes compare to the usual British comedy show - 295 in all. Perhaps it was the accents/dialects, insufficient cultural overlap, or perhaps it was because it was the same old jokes, repeated again and again and again...
295 episodes of 31 series running from 1973-2010. So around 10 a year.
But just fine for syndication - not HD though, most of it.
