I dont know about you, but 13 half hour shows a year is really lame for a tv series. If you know Old Australian Television, look at the series Prisoner (also know as Cell Block H in other parts of the world). 80, 1 hour episodes for a season, and 8 years running. Now thats a series.
I dont think its unfair that a bit more effort be put into these things. 6.5 hours of television for a wear does not really a series make.
What do you think?
