@KORNdog: Not true about Sense8. Sense8 was actually a succes, confirmed by the Vice Pres of Netflix. Just looked that up to be sure :-) (28 minutes ago)
Typo central, but you get the point, (41 minutes ago)
Espectially when they can just tune into one of the 100 other netflix shows they enjoy. Its a service for fickle people...and gonestly i'm one of them. Lol. (42 minutes ago)
@droezelke: true, viewers simply don't care. They wern't warching sense8 to really give a shit about its cancellation. (43 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: I understand that in short term thinking. But viewers don't think that way. (45 minutes ago)
Especially since it didnt have great viewing figures and wasn't bringing new people into the netflix fold. (59 minutes ago)
@droezelke: tbh glow is probably a lot cheaper to produce than sense8 which was 9 million per episode. I think keeping that going, as good as it was, would cause them to bleed out quicker (1 Hour ago)
