Okay, I guess I had no idea this was a thing.
Pehaps it’s because I’m a grownup and realize that TV shows don’t last forever. I miss “Highlander,” “24,” “Sons of Anarchy,” “Justified,” “Seinfeld,” “The Larry Sanders Show,” and many other shows that were appointment viewing for me.
However, I know that TV life is finite, so I’ve dealt with it and moved on.
So, when I read that Netflix cancels a show, I go, “Oh…well, I enjoyed it while it lasted.” For example, I totally dig “The Ranch.” It’s last season is available now and when I get done watching it…vaya con Dios.
NOW…apparently, others are not as easy going as I. One cancellation in particular (the sci-fi drama series The OA) has sparked a major backlash from Netflix users, and those protests are trying to escalate to the next level.
If you missed it, yesterday (9/10) dissatisfied Netflix users were to take to the streets with their protests through a social media movement: “#cancelnetflix.”
Seems a little extreme.
And in light of what today, 9/11 represents, a little shallow too.
But maybe that’s just me.
