I truly believe that 8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter, just like John Ritter's heart, stopped way too soon.

But hey at least we got Kaley Cuoco out of the deal.

Two series that were criminally short at just one each were Plus One and Respectable

Plus One on C4 stars Daniel Mays as Rob who loses his girlfriend to 'Duncan from Blue' whom she plans to marry. Rob's been invited to the wedding but he needs a plus one to show his ex he's over her. Humour wise it's in the vein of Inbetweeners and Peep Show, often near the knuckle but very funny. It's resolved in the 5fth and final episode but there was still enough left in the tank for a 2nd series. Mind you a couple of reviewers on IMBD disagree with me.

Respectable was a 2006 series on C5 and stars Justin Edwards as a man in a loveless marriage who visits his local suburban brothel, not for sex but for company. There he strikes up a bond with a very tasty Jodi Marsh, all clad in stockings and basque, as a naive and 'innocent' prostitute. Very funny and also poignant

I loved Phoenix Nights, but Max & Paddy was not in the same league I thought. It seemed stilted and like they were going through the motions to me. I have never been tempted to watch it again, whereas I have revisited P. Nights many a time.

I would say that I would reaali like to see another season of IT crowd! :) it was amazing! But the American counterpart wasn't good at all!

I know that 'That 70's show' has 8 episodes but it was the only sitcom that made me feel sooo sad that it's over... :)

Would also love to see another series of Mountain Goats.

I fear unlikely.

I liked Starlings and Gavin and Stacey. I have no family, so watching these shows kind of filled a void for me. Does anyone know of any shows like these that I can get on YouTube since I live in America? I'd sure appreciate any suggestions.
Thank-you!

I think there would have been another series of George & Mildred if Yootha Joyce who played Mildred had not passed away in 1980

I know there would have been: she died with Series 6 scripts unopened and unread.

From what I've seen on TV recently
None of them are allowed to stop
