Frustrating indeed. And even if we accept the excuse that the show wasn’t “hitting its metrics,” is that really a decision you can make after it’s been online for only 5 weeks? What happened to giving a show time to find its audience?

Yes, but television ratings, and thus ad revenues, are crashing as people choose to watch other things instead, and the TV people are getting increasingly desperate not to be seen to be backing something that loses money.

i was watching the Bletchley Circle again last night, and it’s set 50 years ago, and yet, it seems attitudes towards women, their intelligence and their efforts remains the same. but at least sthe BC got made and produced and released in the uk (and here on the *horrors* PBS) but here in the USA, home of the brave, a show about women, who revolt against the attitudes and unfairness of their position, cannot make it here.
