VH1 Cancels Hindsight After Renewing it for Season 2

Dear VH1,

It has come to my attention via Entertainment Weekly that you've pulled the plug on Hindsightdespite having previously renewed the well-received drama, about a woman who's sent back in time to 1995 and given a chance at reliving her life and fixing her mistakes.

In a statement released to the press, you said, "Scripted series have been a successful part of VH1’s primetime line-up since 2010 and will continue to be in the future. We love Hindsight and couldn’t be more proud of the series."

That was all good! I was proud of Hindsight too! It had a great tone, an excellent soundtrack, a solid friendship that served as the foundation of the series, and all together was an interesting form of wish fulfillment. It was a series that really made people sit up and pay attention to VH1's scripted properties in a way they never had before!

But then your statement continued: "But in this overcrowded and rapidly changing climate, we need to carve out VH1’s distinct place in the scripted marketplace and deliver the biggest audiences possible for our series. As a result, we’re no longer moving forward with a second season of the show."

Well, I have to say, I am pretty upset by this news. I don't know what exactly you have planned going forward that will help you carve out a distinct voice, but right now, I am feeling pretty scorned. So I'll leave you with the words of a famous philosopher who once said, "I'm here to remind you, of the mess you left when you went away. It's not fair to deny me, of the cross I bear that you gave to me. You, you, you oughta know."

You go home and you think about what you've done, VH1.
