    Why the Campaign to Save Lucifer Was Important

    Networks should pay attention
    Lucifer

    Back in May, Lucifer fans everywhere felt disappointment when they learned Fox had canceled the show after only 3 seasons. They were not about to let their favorite devil go gently into that good night, however, they used the power of social media to voice their anger. The hashtags #SaveLucifer and #PickUpLucifer were trending on Twitter for a month. The overwhelming outcry from fans eventually led to the series being picked up by Netflix for a 4th season.

    Lucifer

    How we all felt upon finding out FOX had cancelled Lucifer.

    Part of what fueled the fevered campaign was the immense cliffhanger the show’s 3rd and would-be final season left on. It was a moment that fans had been waiting on for a long time, and one I will leave the specifics out of to avoid spoilers for anyone who may not have seen it yet. It was a moment that had the show not been able to continue would have been torture for its viewers. Co-showrunner, Jon Henderson, has said that he thought to end the show on such a big cliffhanger would have prevented Fox from deciding to cancel the show, but he turned out to be wrong.

    Lucifer

    I think we all felt like Chloe when we saw that cliffhanger.

    The campaign is a lesson that TV networks can learn about how viewers today are consuming their media. Fox’s reason for canceling Lucifer was due to low live ratings the show had been receiving. However, people are no longer watching their favorite shows the traditional way. In a world where we have Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video it is all too easy to watch TV at convenience instead of making sure to watch a show as it airs live.

    Lucifer

    What would we do if we didn’t get to see this face on our TV’s anymore?

    If network executives are looking solely towards ratings in order to decide how popular a series is, they are looking at it the wrong way. The #SaveLucifer campaign along with the campaigns to save shows like Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Expanse is proof of this. They should start looking at all the numbers for their shows, not just the live ratings. Social media interactions, the numbers on Hulu, Netflix, and other binge sites are other numbers they should take into consideration.

    Lucifer

    Lucifer wasn’t going to go out without a fight.

    Lucifer stars Tom Ellis (Doctor Who) as Lucifer, Lauren German (Hostel: Part II) as Detective Chloe Decker, Lesley-Ann Brandt (Spartacus: Gods of the Arena) as Mazikeen, D.B. Woodside (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) as Amenadiel, and Kevin Alejandro (The Returned) as Detective Dan Espinoza.

    “BEST WORST MOVIES” in March

    COMET TV is rolling out the red carpet for some of the best worst movies on planet Earth. They’re so bad… they’re awesome. Catch films like …

    Creature (1985)
    Gargoyles (1972)
    Jaws of Satan (1982)
    Johnny Mnemonic (1995)
    Monster Dog (1984)
    Reptilicus (1962)
    The Milpitas Monster (1976)
    Vicious Lips (1986)

    Johnny Mnemonic (1995)
    Cyberpunk might be all the rage right now, but Johnny Mnemonic was doing it before it was cool. Keanu Reeves stars as a data courier who traffics top secret information via an implant in his brain. Sounds cool, right? Not when that data ends up acting like a virus that could kill you dead if you don’t get the passwords in time.

    Fall TV Is Returning Soon

    It can’t start soon enough

    The new Fall TV seasons are about to start, and I can’t wait. I think one of the most miserable times of year is the time in between television seasons. Shows always leave on the most excruciating cliffhangers, and then you have to wait months to see what happens next. For those of you who haven’t gotten caught up on everything yet, I will leave spoilers out. I’m going to give a list of shows with very vague descriptions of the closure I need from them.

    Supernatural – I mean… who was that chick? And what are they going to do now that [Redacted] is back? Where did [Redacted] and [Redacted] really go? Will we find out? And of course, the biggie… is [Redacted] ok??? It’s got me all emotional.

    Dean Winchester

    The Vampire Diaries – It’s the last season, so how are they going to wrap things up? Is [Redacted] going to return to finish up her story line? And what the heck was in the basement? What is going on with [Redacted] and [Redacted]?? I’m so worried about these things, guys, you don’t even know.

    Loki Demands Answers

    The Originals – Last season ended with everything in turmoil. I’ve already seen a little bit of the next season, and I know they are doing a time jump of several years. It makes sense, seeing as how The Vampire Diaries also recently jumped in time a bit. I’m guessing they are going to continue to try to keep the stories running parallel to each other. But how are they going to resolve what happened? Is [Redacted] going to come to his senses and stop being such an insufferable jerk?

    Klaus

    Sleepy Hollow – I almost gave up on this show. The death of [Redacted] still doesn’t sit well with me. However, I still am intensely curious as to where they take the show from there. Who were the people who picked Ichabod up at the end? Where is [Redacted]’s soul? Does this leave room for the character to return? They really better wow me with whatever they do, though, because I’m still pretty mad.

    madashell

    The Walking Dead – Honestly, I’m only half excited for this season. I know, I know, I know… I just… I’m a little bitter that people keep giving Jeffrey Dean Morgan stuff to do. He’s said repeatedly he would return to Supernatural if he ever has the time. People keep casting him in stuff, though! I should be happy for an actor finding work… and I am… I just wish it was different work. Other than that I am interested to know who Negan’s victim was. I have an idea, because I’ve read the comics, but they’ve strayed so far off that path there’s really no telling. It just better not have been Daryl. I -WILL- riot. Seriously, though.. the boys need their father.

    John Winchester

    Hell’s Kitchen – There’s no cliffhanger here, but my love for all shows Gordon Ramsay runs deep. This is one I can’t wait to start up again. I’ve been watching old seasons in preparation.

    giveittome

    iZombie – The season finale changed everything. Where are they going to go from there? Who are these new players and what is their agenda? What will the group dynamic be like now that [Redacted] knows all about zombies? Will [Redacted] forgive [Redacted] for seemingly ruining her career? Will she be told about everything now that there is such a massive threat on the loose? I am so excited to find out!

    Excited Ravi

    Sherlock – AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! That’s really all I can say about that. I’m not even going to elaborate at all, because the whole thing is all just too emotional. If you want to share in my feelings, and haven’t seen the Series 4 promo yet, you can check it out below.

    That’s my list. I would have put Game of Thrones on here as well, but that season doesn’t start until next year. These are the shows that are coming out within the next few months that I am the most excited about. Did I miss any you would have added? Do you feel my pain in waiting for any of these to return? Let me know in the comments below!

    Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ Officially Renewed For Season 2

    Season 2 is coming, and I can’t wait.

    Stranger Things

    It’s official, Stranger Things has been renewed for a second season on Netflix. Created by the Duffer Brothers, Matt and Ross, Stranger Things is the TV version of a King/Spielberg/Carpenter love child that every 80’s horror fan always wanted. Set in the 1980’s, the show follows a group of young boys as they go on an adventure to save their friend after he goes missing. Along the way they meet the mysterious Eleven, a girl their age who has escaped from a secret lab where she has been tested on her entire life. She has telekinetic abilities and a mysterious link to a monster that is plaguing the city.

    The Duffers have confirmed that much of the original cast will be returning along with some new additions for the second season. Also, whereas the first season felt much like an 80’s movie, the second season will feel more like a blockbuster sequel. Matt Duffer explained to Entertainment Weekly that James Cameron was a big influence while writing season 2.

    Watch the teaser trailer below, which lists the episode names for all of season 2.

    If you haven’t checked it out yet, Stranger Things season 1 is currently streaming on Netflix. Let us know what you think about the show in the comments and on our Twitter!
