      Sky have commissioned several TV Series to be made in the UK.

      Sadly most UK Series tend to be about 6 episodes long so we tend to forget them pretty quickly.

      As long as they don't count CSI: London or whatever in that i'll be happy.

      Quality over quantity might be a factor there.
      I for one won't be forgetting Stewart Lee or Charlie Brooker in a hurry.

      There again, series such as Buffy and CSI gain a good audience because not only are the popular, but also, you could argue, that they have over 20 episodes in each season.

      Sure Buffy only has 12 episodes in season 1, but the other six season all had 22 episodes in them.

      Even a massively popular series such as Doctor Who only gets 13 episodes each year, with an additional one or two specials.

      Recently, i've made the mistake of watching both Total Recall & Robocop remakes.
      (Or is 'reloaded' the term now?)

      That's a good 3hrs i'll never get back, but at least it was my choice.
      I firmly believe it's slightly different when this safe, formulaic programming clogs up the airwaves though.

      It's probably been said a million times before, but sky really should buy less of this U.S. stuff & invest a little more in U.K. talent.

      Just make it good.
      Not some cheesefest version of a U.S. show.
      WOW!! Respect.....

      I just about managed to sit through Robocop but was trounced in 15 minutes by the dreadful reboot of Total Recall.
