Rant about a recently cancelled show: Lucifer
I don’t usually get involved in trying to save a TV show. Honest. I’ve been pretty upset over some cancellations over the years (Firefly, The Dresden Chronicles, Reaper and many more) but hey, it’s TV. It happens. We don’t even have cable anymore. I mainly watch on the streaming sites and I got hooked on Lucifer. I anxiously awaited each episode. Then, Tom Welling (from Smallville) joined the cast and I loved the show even more. Right before the season finale, my son asked me if I was sad they cancelled the show. Huh? What? Canceled? What’s canceled?
Queue the disbelief as I went through the grieving process. NOOOOOOOO!!!! I looked it up and indeed, it had been canceled. After I dried up all my tears (just kidding, I’m not that crazy), I saw that there was a #savelucifer and #pickuplucifer campaign. I almost didn’t bother but decided to join in and hashtag the heck out of the thing wherever I could. The ending was soooo good. I want to see what happens, even if it’s just one more season to tidy things up. Heck, I’d settle for a few episodes or even a movie just to get closure.
So far, I’ve only used the hashtag on Instagram and made one tweet but I’ve gone to the actors’ feeds and left the hashtags there as well. Next, I plan to appeal to the streaming sites like Hulu, Netfix, and Amazon Prime in the hopes they pick it up. Then I’ll just cross my fingers and hope for the best.
I think I just might crochet something that represents the show for me.
My tiny little contribution probably won’t make a difference in the end but it makes me feel better that I tried.
