AM I NOT ALLOWED TO ENJOY MY SHOWS IN PEACE! WHY DO I HAVE TO WAIT AND FIND OUT THE SHOW I ENJOYED IS CANCELLED! GOD DAMMIT!!!
With my posts “Here Comes the Anger Train” I talk about a subject that makes me upset, but I always try and talk about the other side of the argument to an extent. This topic though has me angry beyond belief and there are many reasons why. I love television… Scratch that I enjoy most forms of media in general, so why can’t I enjoy a show nowadays without the worry that it is going to be cancelled. I mean seriously, I wait a while to see a shows ratings to make sure it won’t get cancelled… I AM PARANOID! I just want to sit down, watch a good show and get the complete story, but the big corporations won’t let me.
Let’s talk about a popular example that rose from the dead and still has a popular fan base, Firefly. This space western has numerous fans, a great story, and cast yet it was cancelled. I guess the world wasn’t ready for a show like Firefly, but through purchasing the Firefly products got them to make a motion picture and continue the story.Where fans rejoiced, but not enough to go to the theatre, boosting the ticket sales for a second movie. So Firefly died off to only live in the pages of comic books and books.
Another and more recent example the made me make this rant was Young Justice. I mean there was seriously nothing wrong with this show. It was great, it had great characters, build up, story it was overall an amazing superhero cartoon. There was such a large and creative team of heroes, the stories were good. I thought I was watching Teen Titans or Batman the Animated Series again. Then the show was cancelled with a cliffhanger the foretold an awesome next season. I mean seriously Darkseid would be awesome to see in the show, but no screw the fans we will leave you with the death of a beloved character.
Warner Bros. is not even allowing the support of a Kickstarter campaign for the reboot of a last season. That shows you how much people want to continue Young Justice. I wish something would happen for Young Justice like what happened to the TV show Chuck. All of the fans bought subway because subway was a sponsor for the show and left a comment saying I am buying this because of Chuck. That is brilliant and it worked the show continued for three more season. This is what I don’t like about TV nowadays, in the past they would at least give you a comfortable conclusion to leave off of, but now I will never know what happened to the team that I grew so fond of. I am tired of watching a TV, putting my time and dedication into the show, purchasing all of the show on DVD. I put my time and money into the show to get nothing in return.
If they ever make comics for Young Justice like they did with Avatar the Last Airbender I will buy them hands down. I have no hope anymore for show and I am just tired. I want to watch a complete story. That is why I enjoy anime, a majority of the time they will at least finish the series with an ending, or make an OVA for a conclusion. I mean shows are cancelled on a whim, here is a list of 58 shows cancelled in 2015! THIS JUST PISSES ME OFF!
Why can’t I enjoy my shows in peace?
