    Copper is actually BBCA`s first original attempt at producing a show. The rest of there programming comes from there parent company BBC…I am still trying to wrap my head around this cancellation too. There is a lit of crap on television year after year, it is kind of scary we live in a nation that has so many people who watch and supports it.

    You’re a bit behind the times. It’s already been renewed for a second season and the DVDs are out for Season 1 as well.
