LoneStar120.jpg"Would we really like to see our drama suffer the same fate as new critically acclaimed Fox 24-part series Lone Star? Premiered last Monday, axed yesterday[?]" So asks BBC drama controller Ben Stephenson, bristling at skeptics who think the Beeb's programs should expand their seasons to Stateside lengths. The accompanying headline goes even further: "We Need To Stop Punishing Ourselves For Not Being American." Seriously, Brits, cut it out! Especially when we're doing such a fine job of punishing you ourselves. [Deadline]
