If you follow TV/Entertainment news to the nauseating level that I do, you know how Netflix is completely changing the TV landscape. What used to be known as a way to binge watch old TV shows and catch up on movies you missed in theaters, is now churning out some Emmy nomination worthy content. January gave us Kevin Spacey’s fantastic “House of Cards”, which I recently binged on 16 hours worth of flights, about a Majority Whip who will do anything to get to the top. The most recent original, “Orange is the New Black” is a riveting drama about a woman who goes to prison for a crime she committed a while back, I HIGHLY recommend it.
Then, there was a 4th season of “Arrested Development”, the critically beloved and Emmy award winning series that received another season after being cancelled years prior. The show, supposedly, will be getting a 5th season on Netflix as well, so the model is working.
When you look at “Arrested Development”, a show that did fantastically when it came to the critics, but horribly when it came to ratings, it follows the current situation of “Bunheads”. This wonderful hour long comedy had so-so ratings, but got the can at ABC Family, even though the amount of support for a Season 2 was staggeringly high.
Here is what I think. You bring back the whole cast for a Netflix season 2. Unfortunately, the 1st season didn’t have a real conclusion, so you create this 2nd season with enough of a ending that could keep viewers happy if a Season 3 wasn’t part of the equation.
The show had everything going for it, except viewers. “Arrested Development” had the same problem, and they are getting 2 seasons…so, come one Netflix. Pick up “Bunheads”!
The campaign to get “Bunheads” S2 on Netflix begins NOW!
Did you watch “Bunheads”? Would you like to see a 2nd season? Do you miss Fanny’s complaining? Let me know in the comments below. I now leave you with the funniest Tv moment of this year. Until next time…Have a Magical Day!
I’ve never even heard of this show. This is so barely related to Disney I can’t even…
We do cover the whole spectrum of Disney here on the blog and ABCFamily is definitely in the Disney family.
“…you know how Netflix is completely changing the TV landscape.”
No, actually, I don’t know how Netflix is “completely changing” anything. In what ways, exactly, is Netflix completely changing anything? Have the networks stopped producing new programming? Has Netflix caused any of the networks to skip broadcast altogether and go right to online streaming of original programs?
I’m failing to see anything that remotely resembles a complete change to anything. People made the same claims years ago when the cable networks started producing original series, and yet the broadcast networks are still producing original programs.
(BTW, Netflix isn’t the first to revive dead series. Programs have been hopping from network to network after cancelation for decades. Fox brought “Family Guy” back after cancelation, and Comedy Central revived “Futurama” quite a few years after that show’s cancelation.)
Bunheads, most definitely deserves another season! A chance to fill out the characters and the story, someone should pick it up and give it a chance…….
