    Well I've been through a range of emotions since I found out yesterday...first there was shock, then horror, then outrage...now I'm just bitter ;)

    You can always take advantage of our ever growing collection of British comedy DVDs. It's all part of Hiro's education.

    You will have to blog more to entertain us. :D

    And I must have a dirty mind, because I thought one of those shows read "Ready, Steady, Cock"

    Oh no!! We've just signed up to BBC Prime - I've got 2 years of Eastenders and Holby City to catch up on now! I'll keep you updated! Helen

    MF: I'm actually considering writing a letter so they know that at least one person is interested in getting it back!

    C: Well I certainly hope I entertain you all :D And your 2nd comment made me go back and double check that I did type it correctly LOL

    H: Please do...I didn't get to watch Holby City so much as it was on at odd times...but I will definitely miss Walford :D

    That sucks! Why did they stop this channel? You gotta love a good episode of "What Not To Wear." We like both the British and American versions, but truly enjoy a good Trinny and Susannah fashion battle.

    I'm not exactly sure why they've stopped it Lou...T & S are indeed quite a team!

    That's terrible, I am so sorry for you. I haven't heard of most of these but I enjoyed your links :-)

    Thanks Antonia :D

    I'm trying to be brave T1...but it's hard :p

    That's awful! I would hate to lose that channel - some great programming there. I love Blackadder, Ab Fab, Fawlty Towers and As Time Goes By. I haven't watched any of the other shows you mention, but I'm sure they're hysterical - as most British humor.

    If you get BBC America Elsa, I highly recommend the other shows on my list :D

    WHAT ABOUT DR. WHO?

    We used to have a channel like that in America- it was PBS. Back in the 70's, 80,s & early 90s, you could see all of those shows for free. Then they realized that American fans would shell out big $ for VHS tapes, and suddenly all those shows went off the air.

    I love Red Dwarf. I wish they'd make more before everyone gets too old.

    Welcome Tony, I'm not sure if Dr Who was on BBC Japan?! And I agree that Red Dwarf is smeg-tastic :D
