I made an account just to ask, how was it critically acclaimed if I, nor literally anyone else I know who uses Netflix, has ever even heard of this show? Clearly it wasn't good enough for Netflix to even show us in the front screen. This sounds like an excuse to make a personal rant and trick some slow witted employer to pay for it.

As a black person, we have seen many many a show that features us, get ripped off the air, even with good ratings.
Fox did that. Then they replaced it with move race dividing shows.
You see, they don't want us all watching the same shows. One day at a time for example, was an attempt at getting a Latino audience so as to use that audience to show commercials to them. Raising Dion, same thing, but for blacks.
When the audience doesn't get divided into pockets good enough to reach the wanted demographic, it's going off the air. Music genres are the same way. Disco, and smooth jazz were examples.
Those genres were swapped out for something more polarized, like a Spanish speaking station, Republican talk radio, sports talk, etc.

The other problem was, the use of blacks as a lead to introduce LGBT people and make an LGBT show, and Netflix now sees that doing that common trick, doesn't lead to a large liberal demographic as they might hope, and when they introduce the LGBT person, the ratings plummet. They cannot openly say this because of backlash.

Seconded.

This feels more sinister than that, honestly, because while I actually do know of this show and kind of enjoy it, it was released a little over two years ago in April 2020. Also as the article states, the only reason we know it's cancelled because someone only recently bothered to ask the creators. The article cites the Rotten Tomatoes scores, but only 34 critics went to the trouble of reviewing it, and only 526 people on the planet felt it was worth their time. Compare those numbers to anything else that's actually critically acclaimed. What gives it away most for me is that the nature of the series is such that there is no continuity. There's no "satisfying ending" to be had. It's literally an actual podcast.

This feels like nothing more than an incendiary hit piece designed to compound any already-negative sentiment toward Netflix. People will likely not read the article and come away with only more "this proves Netflix sucks" rhetoric stuck in their brains.

This show was always meant to be a limited series. It was never meant to have a second season, so saying it was canceled isnt really accurate. You say it lacks a proper ending but Im not sure what else you wanted to happen?

I made an account just to remind everyone that if the rotten tomatoes score is high... You can bet the show is crap. If it's low, likely it's a good show. [edited out]

It's kind of funny that you talk about the babysitters club and a few others when my account is still on there nobody watched the gospel c*** anyway so nobody cares if that's gone

Do people not remember that television shows worked the same way? Shows get cancelled. Sometimes they are expecting to get renewed and have plans in mind for a follow-up season and they leave the current season finale open (sort of). Most shows on regular cable don't get renewed until AFTER the end of the season (HBO, Cinemax, etc not necessarily the same).
