shows that should have never been cancelled

Y'ALL GATHER THE GAYS 🏳️‍🌈

It’s the first day of pride and the news that Sense8 has been cancelled has just dropped.

Sense8, a show that has literally been more inclusive of the LGBT+ community than any other I’ve EVER seen or heard of.

Never in my life have I been more acutely disappointed by a cancellation.

I did what I could- I signed a petition at change.org to tell Netflix why this decision was wrong on so many levels. It’s not much, but it’s a way to get our voices heard.

Here’s what I wrote about signing- hopefully, you’ll sign this petition too:

“I’m signing this because Sense8 is more than a show- it’s what all media should aspire to be. It’s diverse and inclusive, and it makes damn good television.

Sense8 has been a gift to the world, especially to those struggling to find their place in such a society as ours.

In such turbulent times, Sense8 broadcasts a message of hope, strength, unity, courage- and most importantly, LOVE.

Don’t take it away.”

Colin canceling this con at the last minute without saying a thing breaks my heart. He and Jen were the only reason why I was even going and I'm very upset. At least Jen canceled a long time in advance but for Colin to just do it now makes me so sad. I know he just had a baby but he knew about this for a long time. I wish he had warned us sooner. Why do you think they're doing this? Don't they have a PR team to advise them and tell them this looks a bit bad on them?

I’m so sorry you’re disappointed (and if you’re out any money, I’m especially sorry about that too) I have no clue why this appearance wouldn’t have been cancelled quite some time ago. Both Jen and Colin’s cavalier attitude towards cancelling appearances and then never addressing it on social media or elsewhere is not the best look for either of them. I assume Colin is just overwhelmed right now with the baby and not knowing how to deal with fans over the changes on the show, however if he is getting PR advice from someone… they should be fired. Pronto. ‘Cause they’re making him look bad.

You meet Trevor Rabin at your local convenience store and start chatting in the checkout line. You’re telling him you’re a big fan, asking if he’s working on anything interesting, just normal stuff. When you reach the counter you give him a big hug before turning to the cashier. 

“Wait,” he says. You look up at him. “Listen.” You notice that the store suddenly seems to be empty apart from the two of you. “Listen to my spleens.” 

“What?” you ask, confused. 

“Put your ear to my spleens and they will tell you something important. They hold the secrets of the universe. It sounds crazy, but we both know you know already in your heart that it’s true.” He looks you in the eye and you know he’s serious.

Hesitant but curious, you crouch down and rest your ear against his stomach, which is soft like a nice bath mat. At first you hear nothing, but you soon become aware of a soft voice whispering your name. You concentrate to hear it clearly. It sounds like three distant voices combined perfectly into one and it sends shivers down your spine with its otherworldly echo. 

“What is it?” you ask, your voice shaky. “What do you have to tell me?” The spleens seem to ponder for a moment in a breathy swirl of hums and whispers before coming to a definite silence.

“We have to tell you,” they begin, “the secrets to the universe. Are you ready?”

“I’m ready,” you nod, although you’re not so sure.

“First and foremost, you are a very special being. That’s why we have summoned you here today and chosen you to be the recipient of our message. Yes, it was no coincidence that we met here on this day,” they assure you, sensing your confusion. “You hold great potential and power in your soul, and you will achieve great things. In this, we are fully confident. Secondly, Hannibal should never have been cancelled. That was a good fucking show. And finally, most importantly—”

Suddenly, the spleens are cut off by a sharp hiss. You pull away, startled.

“Trevor, wh—”

“That was the fourth spleen. I have to go,” he says, heading for the door. “It’s still out there, seeking vengeance for me letting it die. Thank you for listening.”

“But I never heard the end of the message,” you call after him, standing up.

“It’s ok,” he calls back as he pauses in the doorway. “The message will come to you in one was or another. You’re a smart kid. You’ll figure it out.” And with that, he’s gone, leaving you standing in awe and confusion in the empty store.

im cryening, i wILL find the spleencret to the universe someday. i have to do it. for Trevor. for all of us

Saw that Netflix is standing by its Sense8 cancellation. Ouch. I don’t watch the show (was planning to check it out but now won’t since I know it ends on a massive cliffhanger) but ooooh boy, do I feel the fans’ pain. I still remember watching the last ep of the last season of Farscape, abruptly canceled by then-SciFi channel and literally screaming at the walls at the cliffhanger. The neighbors probably thought I was nuts. That is never ever fun.

Honestly, this is the main reason I rarely watch American shows - they inevitably either get canceled on a giant cliffhanger or drag on and on, years after they should have been put out of their misery. Nobody believes in a story with beginning, middle and end.

(Maybe they can get a wrap up ep, mini or movie though? Firefly got it and so did my beloved Farscape after all.)

i never even said that sense8 should have been canceled or anything lol like. i really loved the show and some of its aspects but u cant ignore that some other parts were super racist n homophobic

One More Mistake

Genre: Angst/Fluff

Rating: PG

Summary: You found a letter in your apartment, as you opened it and read the contents, you found yourself in a massive amount of heartbreak. But maybe it was the best way possible.


To you,

There are so many things I want to tell you right this moment. There are so many things going on in my head and I’m afraid to tell you everything that’s been on my mind. But let me start of by saying, I’m sorry.

You know very well, right? These two words that holds the deepest of meanings and it feels like I’ve been taking advantage of these words for a while now. I feel as though I haven’t been there for you as much as I should have.

You would give me a smile all the time, you never even once showed disappointment when I cancel on dates. And every time I would look at the crowd, you would always take the time off your day to cheer for me from the distance.

You held the paper tightly, you felt your chest being burdened with emotional weight, you could feel the heat of your neck crawling up to your ears. You didn’t know how to react as you continued to read.

Things have been difficult for us. And I know I have placed a heavy burden upon you when we started dating, but I guess I was too naive. We still have years ahead of us, but I still believed we could make everything work for us as long as we want it to be.

But I was wrong. Our lives are not like the movies. I can’t even count the times that we fought each other. The times that I left you crying, the times that felt like it was finally ending for us. And maybe, it was just that. Maybe it was right for us to go our separate ways.

I feel apologetic. To you who had to sleep without anyone by your side, to you that would wait for me pass midnight, to you that remained strong even though I have caused you so much pain.

He was right.It was all very painful. Memories of being alone, the coldness of every space you had. All you wanted was for him to look your way and tell you he loved you. But it was apparent that he had to take responsibility as the leader of the group.

He had to sacrifice his happiness with you to let the group evolve and prosper, even if it meant putting a hold to your relationship. But you weren’t the kind of person who would give up. You knew very well what you got into when you started dating Seungcheol.

You knew how it would hurt, how it would definitely break you a little. You understood perfectly, so why was this letter too painful? For any thing that he failed to do for you, for any thing that he chose over you, how come he was hurting you like this? You, who was patient and understanding.

You could feel your fingers crumple the sides of the paper. You felt your anger boiling inside of you, but your sadness and heartache overwhelmed you even more. Tears started to flow and roll down your cheeks.

I want to hold you, and keep you from all the bad things that you might experience. But it turns out, I was that bad thing. I lost my reason. And I know that you’re tired of everything that I have failed to offer you and I know these are just words that are yet to be proven by my actions. 

I want to end this relationship. I want to terminate it. I want it to be in the past as an ugly memory for the both of us.

I want to start a new beginning with you. Something that would put a smile on your face when you think about us. Something that will last forever.

But I want to prove to you, for the rest of my life, how much you mean to me. I know that I don’t deserve you, and I clearly know your worth. But please, I may have been a bad decision for you, but please, make one more mistake, for me who is not worthy of you.

Will you marry me?

Your brows bunched up together and the overwhelming feeling of happiness, relief and nervousness washed upon you. You couldn’t utter a single word, and you couldn’t let go of the paper. Once again, you felt your tears welling up. Right till the end it was an emotional roller coaster ride for you.

You could see his figure by the corner of your eye. Approaching you. You looked at him with his puppy-dog eyes, he looked extremely nervous. Seungcheol looked the same as when he asked you out for the first time.

He warily went down on one knee and you couldn’t even fathom at the realness of the moment. You could see him pull out a box. You didn’t know what to do at that very moment. The feeling of wanting to hit him and hugging him was something you couldn’t decide over.

“You’re damn right you don’t deserve me.” You said through your tears. “But you always discredit yourself for the things you have done for me.” You added, shakily giving him a peck on the forehead as you brought out your left hand.

Seungcheol broke down in tears, looking at you with the most grateful and relieved looked he had ever worn. He nervously placed the ring on your finger and gave the back of your hand a heart-filled peck.

“How are you going to prove yourself, Choi Seungcheol?” You asked.

“How about I start in the bedroom?” He joked but he clearly had it in mind. You were taken aback by his strength as he took you into his arms with ease as he gave you a loving kiss on the lips. 

Upset with constantly having only disappointment to report, Channel 7 changed their 10 pm slot to show the news that should have been. With shoestring production budgets, they reported missions to Mars and ran footage of yellow sunflower fields filled with white wind turbines. Over time, the reports from a better world became the top-rated program; the old action news shows were cancelled and replaced with infomercials for blankets that were also soda koozies. When astronauts who had never left earth crossed through the atmosphere in a red hot shuttle and, once landed, emerged carrying canisters of red soil, we did not question it, we lined up to feel the soft alien ground sift through our fingers.

Hey

So you, Nick Stahl fans, ya know he’s been in trouble these past few years. Maybe what he needs is to do what he loves… maybe maybe someone should give him a role on something important. maybe something that was cancelled and should make a comeback… I mean since HBO probably has more money than they had a few years ago, maybe, and this is just a suggestion, they should bring back CARNIVALE. JUST SAYING.
