Too many great shows were canceled this year, America. Too. Many.
By Brandon Rizzuto
I’ll be honest people. In terms of TV, 2016 has been rough. I can’t catch up with Game of Thrones on time and every time I turn on the news someone I know from TV is dead. You would think with this rough year, the universe would just let 2016 have a break. Yeah, some bad stuff happened in 2016, but at least you still have your favorite show, right? Wrong. So many shows were just canceled. Like so many. Did you get into a new show this year and found that nobody at work was talking about it even though you really enjoyed it? Yeah, odds are it’s canceled now. As I’ve showed in a previous article here at Crazytown, I will defend a wrongfully canceled TV show till the end. Sometimes networks are just straight up wrong with their cancellations. Here are some shows that 2016 took away too soon.
(Me this year)
Togetherness was taken away from us in the middle of airing it’s second (and now final) season on HBO. Creators Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass, and Steve Zissis (the later two also served as stars for the series), tweeted the news of the cancellation, writing that Togetherness was a “niche show about sensitive people and the sensitive feelings that they feel sensitively.” It was a quiet show that dealt with marital and career struggles as well as the general struggles of being a fuck up. Plus Peter Gallagher (mother fucking Sandy Cohen) had a supporting role in it. For me, anything that keeps former The O.C. stars working deserves to be renewed just out of respect.
(I want to believe you Sandy, but TV has done it to you twice now. Both times equally wrong.)
