I love how netflix shows always get a lot of hype and rarely get cancelled (if never) YET the one show that’s only about the black and latinx community doesn’t get any support aaand get’s cancelled after 1 season, mmm wonder why
What she means:
“Okay listen, the show Freaks and Geeks was really great, it was funny and well cast and it let you really get to know and love the characters as though they’re your friends too and not just part of some tv series, the show really had some depth to it and the characters went through stuff we can all relate to, it wasn’t just some cliché high school show either, there were cheesy moments but that happens in real life too, the show was way ahead of its time and I can’t believe there’s only 18 episodes, how can you cancel such a great show after only one season?”
So, regarding the efforts to save Still Star Crossed.
I work with internet marketing and there’s one thing that fandoms usually ignore: THE POWER OF FREAKING GOOGLE SEARCHES.
Remember that ABC is a corporation of the 21st century. As such, they’re most certainly keeping an eye in every single detail of their online presence.
Let’s say that they start to notice an increase in their website traffic coming from people who searched for SSC related keywords on Google (they get this data from analytics and google webmaster tools). These reports on website traffic are sent to the board of directors (or to the head of the marketing sector) at least once a month.
But why would this be more important than, say, a twitter trend? Well, because networks KNOW that it is always the fandom that organizes twitter trends and hashtags. How many shows have we seen being cancelled even tho the fandom trended and trended and petitioned?!
But google searches show the interest of the COMMON PUBLIC in the show. It’s what your grandmother or your aunt or anyone NOT into fandoms would do if they had interest in knowing more about a tv show. It’s what I used to do before I got into fandoms.
So please, if you have the chance: search on google for the show and CLICK ON THE ABC WEBSITE IN THE RESULTS. If you see an ad from them, click on it (chances are that they have better reporting from ads than from organic clicks). Do it on every computer and device yku can put your hands on. Do it with incognito mode. Do it from different browsers. Do it on public libraries, at work, home, school. On your mom’s computer/phone.
Some search suggestions:
“Romeo and Juliet sequel for tv”
“Rosaline Capulet”/“Benvolio Montague” (basically any character name from the show - avoid names from the original play)
“Still Star Crossed book adaptation”
“Abc romeo and juliet”
“Abc Shakespeare show”
“Still star crossed cast”
“Still star crossed watch”
“Still star crossed episodes”
makes twitter campaign's about renewing gmw and saving the show trending multiple times
uses gmw fandom for publicity by posting about gmw on their social medias to bait us with hope even though they intend to cancel the show

beats them to the news and alerts everyone immediately the show is over while dissing Disney
starts arranging a Netflix campaign and start to call them that night
posts a half assed goodbye to gmw announcement on instagram
fills up the comment section telling Disney how exactly stupid they are for canceling their best show
the star of gmw disses Disney in her rant/goodbye about the show angering Rowan supporters
the next day they accidently like a tweet saying that Disney are idiots
literally gets nominated for two awards
now expanding to Hulu
live chatting and calling Netflix 24/7 to the point where they make a tweet about it and get two articles written about the campaign
posts a picture of gmw reminding everyone the show has been canceled
is a genius and the picture that Disney posted is from World Meets Girl which is an one hour special that literally shows just how STUPID Disney is for cancelling gmw and Disney is airing it on their own channel
start making videos about the news and Netflix alerting the YouTube fandom about what's going on
show that they are all for gmw changing networks and support the campaign without even saying it.
has been getting requests all around the world and the representatives think we might actually have a real shot at this
tries to post something
floods them in all social media begging them to hand over gmw rights
My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone that was at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester this evening 💔.
I’m getting sick over this situation. I can’t believe how insensitive some people are acting right now. They’re saying how they’ll be pissed if Ariana cancels their show or the rest of her tour. WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?!? People DIED at her show tonight. I would hold nothing against her if she did either action. Do you know how she must be feeling right now? Knowing that some of her fans died at her concert. Parents might have just lost their children tonight. When people go to a concert, they go to have fun and a good time. This type of violence is the last thing on their minds. God, just imagine the grief some people are feeling right now, whether a loved one died or is missing.
Then, people are going crazy over Ariana’s safety. Don’t take that the wrong way. I’m happy she’s safe and well. But there also close to 20,000 concert goers and their families that also need love and support in this tragic moment. Just please send a prayer to everyone that was at the venue this evening 💔
I was originally going to make a YTP-thing like I sometimes to with Jontron but sentence mixed with my own thoughts on the matter, but you didn’t ask for that. You all just wanted my two cents so here it is.
The entire video is about what the title implies; respect. Sounds fine and dandy, but then you look at the elephant in the room that is who the respect is intended to be directed at. Felix Whatshisname paid five bucks to poor individuals in India to write a joke that he knew there would be consequences for, (he wanted to test the boundaries of Fiverr’s system, which it does indeed have but the individuals didn’t know English very well so it’s more of a test of language barrier. If he wanted to test boundaries in English Rog Rogerson is literally next door) and he got them.
The consequences he got included getting the individuals temporarily suspended from Fiverr (until he begged them to let them back on I’ll give him that), getting people to think he’s a Nazi given the atmosphere in this hell year, Disney/Maker Studios suspending his partnership, and YouTube Red cancelling his show. How did he react to said consequences? “IT’S A FUNNY MEME,” “I’M NOT ANTISEMITIC OR WHATEVER,” “THE WALL STREET JOURNAL IS CALLING ME A NAZI!”
While there was some acknowledgement that he himself fucked up, most of it was focused on the wrong things, which is why people are still mad. So, how how did Mark react to the people still being mad at him? “RESPECT HIM, WE ARE ALL EQUAL, I DON’T CARE IF YOU’RE JEWISH OR WHATEVER YOU GOTTA TREAT OTHERS THE WAY YOU WANT TO BE TREATED.”
But what about him, Mark? He’s treating others that way and it’s fine, but if he gets treated that way it’s suddenly a moral issue? Your morality is ass backwards.
I don’t think this will make much of a difference but you said things about criticism on your blog before so @markiplier here is some criticism.
Also was the *drops mic* at the end of the video’s transcript really necessary?
Here’s why. This all started with his greedy ass. Annalise lost her baby because he wanted money so Sam blackmails him into killing Lila and the rest is history. But go on, keep blaming Wes and Annalise WHO HAVE BEEN DOING EVERYTHING TO FIX THIS!
My favorite thing is how the Timeless fandom isn’t even a big fandom and yet we managed to get our show un-cancelled like how amazing is that this sounds a 21st-century version of a corny 90s movie plot I love this fandom so much
I don’t usually post stuff like this or should i say never have post stuff like this and i understand that i’m not the best writer or even a good one but i need to write this and i need you guys help and sorry for posting this in this blog but i need to reach as manny people as possible.(reblog and thank you for reading).
so by now fans of the show know that Netflix decided to cancel the show (something i found out while finishing episode 5 of part 2 so you guys can imagine how i felt while watching the finale) and the cancellation of the show only sink in after i finished watching the finale and after like 5 Minutes after for some reason my eyes got watery this is something that never have happen to me before and this sudden feeling of anger and sadness came to me something i never felt before for a show, there have been other shows that i liked that got cancelled but i never got upset ‘i would just find another show’ but to me the cancellation of this show felt personal this to me atleast was the first time that as a Puerto Rican i felt like i was represented and not just represented like ‘hey that guy in the club or the that third guy in the show is Puerto Rican or some dude was talking about their Puerto Rican friend’ nah in this show we were FRONT AND CENTER.
As a Puerto Rican we 99% of the time we NEVER get represented and if we do is always as the fat gangster,or the guy who cuts the white lady’s grass or as a bad joke,and this is not me hating white people but most if not all of white people are numb to the feeling of being amaze of seeing yourself and your people represented (and to be honest i don’t think they know how that feels) in a show or a movie to the fact that i get to see myself and my people in a show portrayed in a fun,real way even if the character was just half Puerto Rican. so yeah i’m angry to the fact that instead of just replacing the showrunner with someone else netflix decided to cancel the show instead of just looking for someone else to run the show.i didn’t even care if they lower the show’s budget but the fact that they cancel the show just makes me mad, one of the many thing’s i liked about the show is the representaion of Minority’s from Puerto Rican To Black people and how we struggle in the 70′s and still do.
Right now as i’m writing this tha only thing i can hear is how hard i’m pressing my keyboard…for me and as for many other fans of the show it wasn’t just a show to us. to me The Get Down represented hope and a one of kind pleasure that you can only get from watching something that speaks to you in a personal level that speaks to your heart something that gives you hope,inspiration and acknowledgement, something that says you exist so netflix didn’t just cancel a show they cancel us.
Hey guys. Okay so I found this awesome petition to try and bring back Felix’s Scare Pewdiepie. What happened was a mistake and he learned from it, so I believe that this petition can help the people who cancelled the show see just how many people really enjoyed this show. I, myself, enjoyed it as it was really charming and funny. They only need 1,057 people left to sign this petition. Please consider signing this guys. It’s not fair what happened. Felix made a mistake and learned from it, but this punishment it just ridiculous and has gone on long enough. Please help out <3
I wanna take a moment to thank you guys for fighting so hard, not giving up and keeping me sane after the cancellation. I’m so glad I don’t have to go through this alone. It really helps me a lot to see all the tweets, the comments, the videos and the pictures and I think you guys feel the same. It feels good to know we’re in this together. It has always been a great and friendly fandom, but the cancellation showed me how truly awesome it is. People from all around the world working together, fighting for what they believe in, overcoming fears (people calling Netflix despite their anxiety e. g.), you can be so proud of yourselves.
