  • The Office is something I'd like to see put out of its misery, as I'll keep watching it til the bitter end. I'm also pleased that The River has been cancelled as I'd probably have carried on not enjoying that one too.

    As for Awake: I should stop watching any dramas on US network TV as anything interesting or even remotely challenging fails to gain an audience and is cancelled.
