2 episodes must be some kind of record.
Heil Honey, I'm Home was cancelled half way through the first broad cast of the first episode. That sitcom about Hitler having I love Lucy-ish adventures with the Jewish couple next door.
Oh I forgot about that show.
you truly have to wonder about the executives who allowed such a show to go to pilot let alone series.
Grace and Frankie will end with a final 7th season.
But to be clear, it hasn't even aired the sixth season, so it still has plenty of life.
Let's see if it has a decent ending. So far there isn't a single Netflix TV show, or movie for that matter, that has a decent ending
While Orange had some rough spots in the last few seasons, I thought it's final season was a strong note to end on (well, aside from Piper's ongoing white privilege).
Sense8 ended on an excellent high note, especially considering it was originally canceled on a cliffhanger but was able to close things out with a film.
A Series of Unfortunate Events ended well, although granted it had the benefit of the books to work from.
Daredevil and Jessica Jones, while both had weaker second seasons (but I also don't think they're as bad as many make them out to be), both ended on excellent notes. While I'm sad we won't get more of them, I'm happy with how their shows ended. Also, it's not fair to judge Luke Cage's and Iron Fist's endings considering they were cut off at the knees (and just when Iron Fist was actually getting good).
In fact, I think the only Netflix show that I've watched the entirety of that I do agree with is House of Cards.
Bringing up films seems just weird, especially in the context of this thread.
OitNB had a fantastic ending.
I stopped watching Orange in season 3 I think. I completely forgot about it.
Ralph Macchio had a sitcom in the 90s that got picked up, they filmed several episodes (Pat Morita even made a guest appearance), then it got cancelled before ever airing. I'm sure it wasn't the first or last time something like that happened.
Fox had a comedy starting Jason Ritter and Alexis Bledel that they filmed 6-8 episodes, the whole fist season and never aired it.
Us & Them
It aired in Australia.
Got on the internet.
Not hard to find.
Which of course is a remake of the britcom Gavin & Stacey.
Not cancelled, but instead not going foward, is Hulu's planned Grishamverse.
Which is playing on ABC Comedy here in Aus. Gavin & Stacey that is.
The Gavins and Staceies should swing to create a finer experience.
I like the yank Gavin and the Brit Stacy.
OMG how many versions of this are around?
Not going forward is Disney+'s planned Muppets series, Muppets Live Another Day. Which is a shame - it sounded interesting and had a lot of talent behind it. I wonder what about it was the straw that broke the camel's back with regard to Muppet Studio and the developers.
^ Creative differences. Article I read said new studio chief wanted to go one way (his vision), creative team wanted to go their developed 'own way' (without scrapping months of work). Split was said to be amicable.
Disney just can't figure out what to do with the Muppets.
