Awesome TV series that were Cancelled or should’ve been Cancelled.

Before Cancel culture was a norm, television companies have been doing it. Which is a shame if you’re hooked into a series only to have it abruptly end.

Here’s a list of awesome TV series that got cancelled:

  1. Into the Badlands
    This has been my favourite so far. No doubt haters always find something to complain about, but what I enjoy about this tv series is the world-building, culture and lore. It is rare to see an American tv series with martial arts, and I welcome this fresh and high-octane drama. Costumes that differentiate the allegiance with Barons and properties are also worth a mention.
    Setting: Post-apocalyptic martial arts series in dangerous feudal lands.
  2. Firefly
    The adventures in different planets and civilizations leave you curious and wanting for more.
    Setting: Space, Western drama in the year 2517.
  3. Dracula
    No introductions needed as it’s pretty obvious from the title. Horror drama.
    Setting: Victorian.

Now here’s a list of awesome TV series that should’ve been cancelled:

  1. Game of Thrones
    We know this one. It was great until the last season. Cancelling out the last season would’ve saved this beloved piece than finishing it and leaving a bitter aftertaste with the horrendous last season.
  2. How I met your Mother
    It was awesome, really. Funny until…it wasn’t. For the love of all things, quit dragging on how the MC met their mother when it should’ve ended a season or more ago.

Having said that, I’m not really a fan of the cancel culture. What’s the tv series that you wish were cancelled or wasn’t?


Two Roads of an Empath

The first feeling of emotions,
Erupted like the roar of lions,
Either from your own or others,
Absorbed like an unwanted sponge in tethers.

At the crossroads, there were two paths,
A decision to make for the Empath,
To go down the destructive mines,
Or to wind back the birth line.

If you chose the destructive path,
Insensitive and illogical minds incurred your wrath,
You asked, “Why do I need to put up with others’ shit?”
“Why do they throw their feelings into my peaceful pit?”
You would eventually lose your powers,
But you would have peace in your lonesome tower.

Otherwise, if you continued with your natural feelings,
It might keep you reeling,
You might never feel numb,
In fact, you would continue feeling dumb,
But you remained in the humane path of future and past,
The question was, could you last?

There was never any black or white,
It was either fight or flight,
If you thought the choice was obvious,
Congratulations on discovering your cockiness.

The choice had always been grey,
So, which way?
