When shows I watch get cancelled, I always wish I'd have done more to praise them. So this'll be an ongoing thread of shows I like, cancelled and renewed.
I basically stumbled onto #Rise and it had me in my feelings every week. Such a good story and really talented young cast. I had a feeling it wouldn't be renewed, so I was apprehensive about investing. But it was a worthwhile to do so.
#Sirens is one of my favorite shows this season. I went into it expecting a kind of teenage melodrama (like Twilight with mermaids) but it's actually mature and smart. It's a far more engaging story than I expected and I actively anticipate new episodes every week.

On the subject of representation and inclusion, it is misguided and downright factually incorrect to suggest that black women do not support other marginalized groups. Black women have used their influence and power to hire and cast a diverse range of people in their work.
Think of Shonda Rhimes. She rules Thurdays nights with her trifecta of hit series (Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder). In addition to casting white and black actors, all three feature NBPOC in lead roles AND all three have featured queer characters.
Over on the CW, we're seeing Mara Brock Akil (and her husband Salim Akil) are killing it with #BlackLightning. The series not only features the FIRST black lesbian superhero, but it also features a groundbreaking interracial queer romance between Anissa and Grace Choi.

I need to ruminate on this #Arrow BLM bullshit, because I've been heated about it all day.
I haven't watched every #BLM episodee of television, but from what I've seen, only one drama has gotten it right. That show was #QueenSugar.
The reason they got it right is because the show was created by black people with a diverse and talented writers and actors.
