People get upset when shows get cancelled for many reasons: the story's unresolved, they'll miss their favorite characters, etc. Those reasons are real and valid. Shows like Underground and Sense8 being cancelled give many people another reason to be upset, beyond upset. The implication being that only straight, white males and their stories matter. Beyond the fact that both shows were done extremely well, made UNREAL use of music, and kept you revited, they both gave voice to stories and people definitely and defiantly not within that straight, white male narrative. I stumbled on Sense8 last fall and couldn't wait for season 2. I already finished it. Thanks to a friend's urging (thanks @marlosupreme), I began Underground a few weeks ago. I loved it and planned to begin season 2 this week. I'll still finish it, it just really sucks knowing that might be it. I really, really hope not.
