It wasn't perfect, but it was damn good. So let's raise a glass to "The Hour," the BBC/BBC America series that has been canceled after two seasons.

You can make Emmy acting cases for Dominic West, Ben Whishaw, Anna Chancellor, Peter Capaldi and, most of all, Romola Garai. I hope they are remembered when consideration time arrives.
