Why Cancelling In The Flesh Is A HUGE Mistake

In The Flesh is a great show for getting people involved in fighting inequality/challenging their beliefs/recognising the different and sometimes subtle elements of oppression and persecution. It deals with the themes of family, the political spectrum, extremism, bigotry, gender roles + expectations, abusive parents, PTSD, mental illness, fetishisation, terminal illness, sibling relationships, heteronormativity, self-hatred/self-acceptance, conforming to be accepted, the pros and cons of religion, corrupt authority figures, and so much more.

Also it’s a show with:

  • one canonically bisexual/pansexual lead who is potentially mentally ill  (and also our hero despite being gentle, kind, sensitive, and in no way the traditional macho male action hero, seriously he’s such a great role model for teenage boys)
  • one canonically homosexual lead who is definitely mentally ill and suffered with drug addiction
  • a really really strong believable female lead (and not the only one either) who tramples all over the whole manic pixie dream girl trope by showing a woman can be as wacky and ‘random’ and feminine as she likes but also be, y'know, a person who exists for herself and has her own troubles and pain
  • a lead with an emotionality abusive parent who is also most likely homosexual (so it deals with the pressure a lot of kids have to keep their sexuality secret)
  • another really really strong female lead who suffers from PSTD 

This is not just your average tv show. This show means something. It’s progressive, it’s making a statement, and it’s entirely unique. There is nothing out there quite like it. 

There will never be another show like this. This is a once in a lifetime thing. It’s cancellation is such a huge mistake. 

Hopefully another network/channel will pick the show up, because if not, then a hell of a lot of people who are usually completely ignored by mainstream television will be left out in the cold again. 

This show is a literal life saver. Bring it back.
