It’s hard to keep up with all the new shows that are constantly hitting our screens. Whether it’s a sit-com, an animated adventure, or the latest MCU entry, there’s too much TV to keep up with.

As a result, some great shows fail to attract the audience they deserve simply because they haven’t been sufficiently marketed or aired alongside an established fan favorite. Low viewership numbers are a curse for TV shows in their first season, often resulting in cancellation, a fate that many entertaining and groundbreaking shows have unfortunately met.

‘Freaks and Geeks’


Cast of Freaks and Geeks

Freaks And Geeks was a show plagued by the threat of cancellation throughout its production, so it’s no surprise the series was ultimately canceled before fans could see what a second season would have entailed. . The series tells the story of a high school athlete who begins hanging out with a bunch of burnouts while his younger brother and his friends go through the terrors of their freshman year.

Despite its premature cancellation, the series has become a cult classic that has helped launch the careers of many of its actors, including Seth Rogen, Linda Cardellini, Phillips busyand Jason Segelto name a few.

‘Crash’


Phoebe Waller-Bridge in Crashing

Before becoming a superstar as the creator and star of the critically acclaimed and universally loved film Flea bag, Phoebe Waller Bridge created a heartfelt comedy about a complex group of characters living in an abandoned hospital. Filled with the trademark spirit of Waller-Bridge, crackle was a triumphant success that combined romance and friendship in an intoxicating mix.

Waller-Bridge also starred on the show alongside a stellar cast of British talent, including Jonathan Bailey, Adrian Scarbroughand Amit Shah. Fortunately, Waller-Bridge is currently developing a new series for Amazon Prime, so we’ll soon have a new series to fall in love with.


‘Firefly’


2002 science fiction TV show Firefly

Despite airing only fourteen episodes, Firefly became one of the most popular TV shows ever made, currently sitting comfortably at number 26 on IMDB’s list of highest rated TV shows. Created by Joss Whedon, the show was set five hundred years in the future; the crew of a small spaceship tries to survive as they travel through a galaxy full of warring factions and law enforcement agents to hunt them down.

Firefly helped launch (no pun intended) the career of Nathon Fillion, Alan Tudykand Morena Baccarin, and talk of a revival is never far away. Fillion offered his thoughts on the prospect during an interview with Collider in 2018.

‘Whisky Rider’


Whiskey Cavalier Scott Foley Lauren Cohan

In the weeks leading up to its release, Whiskey Cavalier seemed to have everything to guarantee that it would be a success. The show’s protagonists both joined the project through incredibly popular shows, with Lauren Cohan coming from behind The Walking Dead and Scott Foley just left Scandal. Also, the show’s premise, an FBI agent who teams up with a CIA agent to save the world, despite them not supporting each other, seemed like something audiences could relate to.

Unfortunately for everyone involved, the show never garnered the ratings its strong reviews suggested it deserved, and the show was not picked up for a second season.

‘Undeclared’

Seth Rogen struggled with his first two TV shows. After freaks and geeksthe Canadian comedian teamed up with Judd Apatow for the college comedy series, Undeclared. Yet despite a hilarious cast including Jay Baruchel, Charlie Hunnamand Carla GalloUndeclared was never picked up for a second season.

Undeclared follows freshman Steven Karp (Baruchel) as he tries to navigate his way through college while struggling with his father, whose recent divorce has sparked a massive midlife crisis. Lucky for Rogen, his last show Pam and Tommy is one of the most acclaimed series of the year so far.


‘Selfie’

Selfies was a show ahead of its time, but even still, it’s hard to believe it wasn’t renewed for a second season. The series follows Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan), a social media-obsessed woman who, after being the subject of an embarrassing viral video, turns to marketing expert Henry Higgs (John Cho) to restore its image.

As she grows closer to Henry, Eliza begins to realize that there is more to life than likes, comments and shares. The show consisted of thirteen episodes but was unfortunately canceled after only seven episodes, making Selfie another John Cho short-lived series.

“Constantine”

John Constantine is one of DC’s most popular anti-heroes, who has featured quite prominently in the comics since his first appearance in 1985. The character has also appeared in two live-action adaptations, first in a long footage that has seen Keanu Reeves play the lead and second character in a television series which saw matt ryan step into the shoes of Constantine.

The series was well-loved by fans, as was Ryan, who would later reprise the role on various shows across the Arrowverse. Although all hopes of seeing this series revived have long since expired, it was recently announced that a series of Constantine reboots would be heading to HBO Max, although it’s unlikely that Reeves or Ryan will be involved.

‘Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip’


Distribution of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip

Created and written by the Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip gave audiences a behind-the-scenes look at a fictional sketch TV show similar to Saturday Night Live. Sorkin brought together some of the best television actors of the time, including Matthew Perry, Bradley Whitford, Amanda Peetand Sarah Paulson.

Almost everyone involved in the series has achieved great success, including Sorkin, who wrote and directed three critically acclaimed films: Molly’s Game, The track of the Chicago 7and Be the Ricardos.

Irwin plays Lou Who, the father of Cindy Lou Who, the little girl who befriends The Grinch (Jim Carrey).


6 Stephen Fry – V for Vendetta (2005)

One of the most interesting things about Elizabeth’s journey is that, despite the poor execution, she had an idea that inspired many people to want to get involved. One such person was biochemist Ian Gibbons (Stephen Fry) who believed Theranos would help countless people.

Fry is a famous British comedian, but he has also made many notable film and television appearances. Fry appeared in the comic book adaptation V for Vendetta about a masked vigilante exposing the secrets of the totalitarian government. Fry played a talk show host who befriends Natalie Portman’s Evie.

Theranos started out as a very small company with a team of very dedicated workers, including Rakesh Madhava (Utkarsh Ambudkar). He often serves as comic relief in the story, cracking office jokes and banter, but gradually becomes uncomfortable with Elizabeth’s dealings with the company.

2 Naveen Andrews – Lost (2004-2010)


Although Elizabeth struggles to connect with many people her own age, she makes a deep connection with Sunny Balwani (Naveen Andrews). The former businessman becomes one of the few people Elizabeth can turn to, even as their romantic relationship grows more troubled and his involvement in her business further complicates matters.

Like Sayid on Lost, Andrews has become one of the popular series’ fan-favorite characters and one of its main heroes. After the survivors of a plane crash on a mysterious island, Sayid became one of the leaders against the many threats they faced.


1 Amanda Seyfried – Mean Girls (2004)


Karine

Amanda Seyfried gives a compelling and complex performance as Elizabeth Holmes on the show. She presents the protagonist as a human being with real qualities that make the audience invested in her journey, but she’s also not shy about showing Elizabeth’s flaws.

Seyfried’s exciting career was launched with his role as a scene stealer in the teen comedy mean girls. As a member of the titular popular girls, Seyfried was hilarious as the very dumb Karen.

Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 3 – Summer 2022 Premiere

Star Trek: Lower Decks is certainly the most controversial star trek group tv show, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Mike McMahan’s comedy series about the lesser known team of Cerritos isn’t the type of humor fans are used to in the franchise, but it has its merits. Jonathan Frakes, for example, is a big fan of the show and like others, appreciates some of the deep references used to mock and honor the deep tradition of the star trek franchise. New episodes should arrive during the summer, probably towards the end of Strange new worldsalthough all we know beyond that is that Season 4 will happen.

Section 31 was one of the first star trek spinoffs announced after Discovery, and yet it has not yet taken off. The series will follow Michelle Yeoh’s Phillipa Georgiou and her efforts in Starfleet’s covert ops faction that does work that others in the organization would rather ignore. Other former Discovery stars, like Shazad Latif, have been involved at some point, but with development yet to kick off, castings like this may change. All we know at the moment is that this show is still should happen and that there are still a good number of fans excited to see Yeoh play Georgiou again after the character’s departure in Star Trek: Discovery. I’m not sure we’ll find much redemption for the Earth Empress in this new series, but really, it’s not like she’ll need to redeem herself in this new role.

Netflix will launch ‘choose your own adventure’ movies and TV shows by the end of this year, starting with Black Mirror, report says

  • Netflix plans to launch special offers that will allow users to decide the next scenario
  • The first draft of the new range is expected to be released by the end of this year
  • Report Claims Sci-Fi Show ‘Black Mirror’ Will Have An Episode As Part Of This Project
  • Netflix released ‘Puss in Book’ show earlier where viewers could choose endings










Netflix will soon allow you to choose the end of certain movies or episodes.

The streaming giant is gearing up to launch choose-your-own-adventure-style specials in the coming months as part of a bigger push toward interactive television, according to Bloomberg.

The first draft of the new lineup is set to release by the end of this year, and Netflix’s hugely popular sci-fi show, “Black Mirror,” will premiere an episode as part of this draft.

Netflix will soon allow you to choose the end of certain movies or episodes. The streaming giant is gearing up to launch choose-your-own-adventure style specials in the coming months. The new season of Black Mirror will have one of these episodes. A picture of Black Mirror 4 is shown

The Los Gatos, Calif.-based company is developing specials that will let its users decide the next scenario, Bloomberg said, citing people familiar with the matter.

Netflix previously released the animated program “Puss in Book” where viewers could choose alternate endings of the same show.

The company has tested alternate endings in animated children’s programs, with episodes of shows such as “Puss in Book” allowing the viewer to choose how certain scenes will play out.

In Puss in Book, for example, the viewer is tasked early on with choosing whether the cat will fight a god or a tree.

And, if you don’t like the result, you can always go back and select the other option.

Netflix was not immediately available for comment.

According to the report, the firm is also working on an animated series based on the Minecraft game, with plans to release it before the end of the year.

The move comes amid a larger push towards interactive television.  Netflix previously released the animated program

HOW YOU CAN WATCH A WHOLE YEAR OF NETFLIX CONTENT

Kinnari Naik from the University of Leicester found that an unemployed adult could watch all 1,399 content uploaded to Netlfix in 2017 by following a strict routine.

The exploit would take 236.5 days, assuming the watcher spends 13 hours 50 minutes and 40 seconds per day – 58% of their time – on Netflix.

The study allocated time away from watching Netflix to account for:

  • Four pints (two litres) of fluid per day, divided into four 176 fluid ounce (500 ml) servings, with each drinking break allotted 10 minutes
  • 3 meal breaks of 30 minutes.
  • Bath and wash 15 minutes a day
  • Seven five-minute breaks to urinate
  • An additional vacuum of 10 minutes to pass stool.
  • The allotted sleep time was only seven hours

Black Mirror, which is set to release its final season later this year, will feature an interactive episode that will allow viewers to choose which direction it takes.

Bringing this to life, however, will be much more complex than bringing it to life for the animated children’s series.

Scripts will need to be much longer, which means writers and producers may have to reevaluate their compensation.
