You're the Devil of Hell's Kitchen.  
++ Welp. Netflix just cancelled Daredevil, despite its third season being well-received and even considered the best season of the show yet. I guess this is the death of the Netflix Marvel universe after all. Only Jessica Jones and The Punisher are left, and who knows how long before both are ruthlessly axed as well. This is really shitty, mostly because it's obviously part of the streaming service wars (Netflix vs. Disney) and it's just a downward spiral of them just cancelling their entire Marvel lineup left and right. This also doesn't reflect well on Netflix in general because it further demonstrates that they'll cancel anything no matter how high the ratings. Their Marvel lineup was considered the best, the most successful, and the most popular and they're throwing it all away over some bullshit streaming war nonsense. Basically, it's a stupid business decision and Netflix, along with the Disney streaming service, can go fucking choke.

++ There has been an announcement about a global rewatch of Sense8 on Netflix in December in hopes of getting enough attention for there to be a third season made. This has been something that has been in the works for a while, and although I don't know how much of a success this'll do (since us getting a two-hour finale special was a damn miracle in itself), this kind of passion and determination is something I love to see in fandom. If nothing else though, whether Sense8 miraculously gets a third season it rightfully deserves or not, I just want Netflix to officially release the DVD/Blurays of the entire series. I think we deserve at least that much after everything.

++ Sony officially released a "romcom" trailer for Venom to promote the release of the Bluray. This is excellent marketing since it embraces the reasons why people ended up enjoying the movie in the first place, aka the Symbrock (Eddie/Venom) relationship. I'm just so pleased by this.

++ Meanwhile, we finally have the trailer for Marvel's Runaways second season. I'm so hype for it.

I wouldn't be surprised if Daredevil and The Punisher have one final season before netflix cancels them too. It's like ??? what are you guys smoking?! And netflix never releases the numbers in regards to the ratings of their shows so we can't even point at the numbers and be like YO WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING?! Disney better be pulling them onto their service or I'm going to be side eyeing all their shenanigans more than I already am.

idk how much of an impact that a global rewatch of Sense8 would have, especially since they had a two hour send off after its cancellation thanks to fan outcry (rightfully so! I'm still butthurt about the cancellation) but I'm down for a rewatch! Whatever happens, we need the official DVD/Blurays stat Netflix!

I think you mean Jessica Jones and The Punisher. ;) But it seems that Netflix is canceling them after their most recent finished season airs, and Jessica Jones have been filming/finished filming their third season. I don't know about The Punisher, even though it was confirmed to have a second season. But I also wouldn't be surprised that their seasons would be the last with all of this nonsense.

Disney better be pulling them onto their service or I'm going to be side eyeing all their shenanigans more than I already am.

I don't think they will, since it's been reported that they will be keeping their service strictly PG13 (aka "family friendly") and none of the Netflix Marvel shows are exactly of that kind of content, so even if that were to happen it would be a watered down version of their shows. Furthermore, since this is about the war between Netflix versus Disney, Netflix most likely canceled these shows as a way to "stick it" to Disney by refusing them to reclaim Marvel property. Again, idk what's going on but it's just shitty all around especially since this obviously blindsided the Daredevil cast and crew, and I just feel incredibly bad for them. :(

idk how the global rewatch would impact a possible third season either, but I like the fandom's attempt anyway plus to get more people aware of the show anyway. I've seen people just getting introduced to it so, y'know, that's always a good thing. :)

Oops! I did mean Jessica Jones and The Punisher lol! :P Yeah that's def a good point there. Ughhhhh. Someone needs to throw water at the both of them lmao. It's sad that the cast and crew of all shows caught up in it all are getting the worst out of it.

Yep. Sense8 is such a good show so if nothing else, it's a great time to bring new fans into the fold.

It just sucks because it didn't have to be this way, had they planned things better all these shows would've been given the chance to wrap up properly, or at least give a sense of completion even if they had more to tell for a possible future. But now, stories will be unfinished and that? Really blows. :/
