This particular flurry of cancellation talk has gotten me down a bit. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I don’t think I can remember the last time I cared about anything (other than living breathing things, clearly) as much as I care about this show. I know that a show’s renewal is based…
the-omniscient-narrator said:You are precious! Stick around, it’ll all be alright :) and if not, we got a good crew of ppl here!
great people here. Don’t worry, just been down the pub and feeling a little less antsy already.I’m with you, alittlenutjob. From reviewing Cancellation Bear’s tweets and whatnot, I get the feeling that he has a bad attitude. If he is doubling down on his prediction that Mindy will be canceled out of stubbornness or spite or if he is basing his prediction on opinion, he needs to say so clearly, rather than passing it off as fact to avoid losing journalistic integrity and accuracy. Unless he has indisputable factual info that the decision has been finalized (and by this I mean something other than personal preference, gossip, imagination or someone’s cousin’s sister in law’s best friends’s dog walker’s BFF), he doesn’t know anything more than the rest of us. If the Bear claims Mindy is cancelled, he is just as misleading as people who claim that Mindy has been renewed. IMO, it is as wrong to give people false hope as it is to take away their hope. For example, if people believe the Bear and just give up, it’s bad for the show. Likewise, if people believe that Mindy has been renewed (without official word), it gives them false hope and there is no motivation to campaign, which is equally bad. Best case scenario is that we realize the truth, which is that NEITHER side knows what they claim to know. Right now, the show is still on the bubble and anything we can do to improve its chances of renewal will be a good thing. In other words, we need to do EXACTLY what this beautiful fandom has been doing for the past month, which is to ignore the misleading opinions of both sides and concentrate on actual positive action to raise the show’s profile and let FOX know what a loyal and effective fanbase the show has. IMO, if the Bear’s dire predictions make us mad enough to fight the threat of cancellation, then thank goodness for the grouchy bear! All I can say is that I am so grateful that this beautiful fandom didn’t fall victim to inaction by listening to either extreme and instead took action that has been proving the naysayers wrong at every turn, not to mention it has been a ton of fun and great support as we get through the hiatus together. We have one more month to go and we can DO THIS! We still need every hand on deck. YOU guys have been instrumental in the success of the livetweets. Success belongs to every person who has tweeted at top speed and been there every step of the way this past month. When I think about what has happened and the people who made it happen (all of you-gestures to the crowd), I can’t even deal…. Thank you so much!
I agree with this! No one is certain of anything, and it is ALL speculative at this point. I think staying proactive is the best thing and keep on tweeting as we have been doing! alittlenutjob please stick around.Thanks. Just to be absolutely clear, my rant against the Cancellation Bear and other non-fact-based predictions (whether they be pro or anti renewal) was not at all directed against alittlenutjob, who has been such a supporter of this fandom’s grassroots efforts. I was actually replying to both her post about feeling down about the possibility of cancellation and her other response about the Cancellation Bear being possibly vindictive after getting into an online row with a mindy fan recently. Details here: http://alittlenutjob.tumblr.com/post/78661777500#notes I love you, alittlenutjob, and hope you are feeling much better! Thank you so much for your beautiful fanfics. I am reading pancake Day as we speak! Love, LOVE the whole Repairs series!
Thanks mindannyforever and imadandylioness I am definitely sticking around, There are some pretty positive point for renewal too (B99 is faring no better in the timeslot even after the big Superbowl promotion, she’s got some real supporters at FOX, there are other incentives for studios and executives to keep Mindy Kaling happy) so until we hear for sure there’s no reason to fall on one side or the other. Thanks guys.
