Bugger, I really liked it. Of course, it's not renewed, that's usually what happens to shows I like while shit soapies and reality shows go on forever.

The Man Who Fell to Earth: Cancelled; No Season Two for Showtime Sci-Fi Series

I'm not surprised, but a little disappointed. It started off so well then rapidly went downhill. Shame.

Yeah... Parts of the show were awesome, but I'm not too disappointed that there won't be a season two.

The Man Who Fell to Earth: Cancelled; No Season Two for Showtime Sci-Fi Series

Faraday isn’t returning to Earth, or Showtime, for that matter. The cable channel has opted not to continue The Man Who Fell to Earth, so there won’t be a second season. The first season of 10 episodes finished airing in early July. The show was originally ordered to series by CBS All Access, now known as Paramount+.

A sci-fi drama series, The Man Who Fell to Earth TV show was inspired by the Walter Tevis novel and the David Bowie film. It stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Naomie Harris, Jimmi Simpson, Rob Delaney, Sonya Cassidy, Joana Ribeiro, Annelle Olaleye, Kate Mulgrew, Clarke Peters, and Bill Nighy. The story follows a new alien character (Ejiofor) who crashes into the oil fields of New Mexico at a turning point in human evolution and must confront his own past to determine our future. Justin Falls (Harris) is a brilliant scientist and engineer who must conquer her own demons in the race to save two worlds.

Airing on Sunday nights, the first season of The Man Who Fell to Earth averages a 0.02 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 149,000 viewers in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. The series was a middle-of-the-road performer.

“Our thanks to the extraordinary Alex Kurtzman, Jenny Lumet, John Hlavin, and Sarah Timberman, who did a great job of turning the David Bowie film into such a resonant tale for our times,” a Showtime spokesperson said in a statement to THR. “And kudos to a wondrous cast led by Chiwetel Ejiofor, Naomie Harris, and Bill Nighy for bringing it to life. Alex and Jenny originally intended The Man Who Fell To Earth to be a close-ended story. While we flirted with the idea of expanding it into a second season, we all ultimately decided to embrace it as a one-season story well told.”

Interesting perspective. I just watched it as entertainment and don't feel 'propagandized'. :)


That's how you can measure that propaganda is good and works.

:D Using that as a measure, you could claim that every propaganda is successful as long as the recipient doesn't object loudly? I've watched all kinds of shows and don't automatically switch to every position being shown. Societies always change, I bet there were similar discussions when slavery was about to end or when gays were becoming visible.

Basically it's the same what CNN or NY Times do (and also the opposite ditch - Fox News)

With the extremely important difference that fact-checking reveals that CNN and (even more so) NY Times and Washington Post are right WAY MORE often than Fox News. Fox News even argued in court that Tucker Carlson's show is not news and that what he says "cannot reasonably be interpreted as facts." And that's their most popular show!

I don't like every decision someone in Hollywood makes, but that's okay. And some folks produce movies about people living accordingly to the Bible (and suffering when they don't). That's okay too, I just won't watch those.

Nobody likes to be treated like an idiot and that's exactly what they do. Plus there are consequences way more far reaching than they realise. Anti-American sentiment is growing all over the world and pretty sure this trash contributes to that a lot. Be careful what you wish for, master strategists :)


And agreed, again!

What specifically made you feel this way?


It's pure political propaganda, Goebbels style - a brainwashing. Literally no difference with shit Russia do on their TV 24/7, just different topic and maybe a bit more sleeky. You do it like this "Weather outside is nice, average temperature 24C and btw Ukrainians are nazis". Same shit here, 5 questions, but one of these questions is formulated just right to push the agenda which has nothing to do with these series. In 10 episodes this occuring once you can write off a coincidence, but not 7x :D Some fucker literally was sitting in writing room and was thinking how and where to squeeze it in. Remaining question is just why - because he himself is fucked in the head and is pushing it because of his own convictions or it's an organized approach, like studio or whatever is making it a requirement. Like in RU all guidelines what trash to push comes from Kremlin office :)

Also maybe in US it has a desired effect, but in the rest of the world I'm quite certain it has exactly opposite effect, so these also are in "master strategists" category. Tho looking at how divided is US, it probably backfires there as well.


Agreed.
