SLATED TO BE CANCELLED.
Please help, one of the best damn shows I’ve ever seen, is being cancelled. This is breaking my goddamn heart. This show is so ripe with potential, and is bursting at the seams with quality.
It’s the story of a digital society, being taken over by a manipulative tyrannical government, and the fallen hero “TRON” who is thought to be dead, is training a passionate young man named Beck to fight back, and re-claim their world. Beck (Voiced by Elijah Wood) disguised as Tron, fights for the freedom of his friends and fellow programs, and quickly becomes known as “The Renegade” by some, while others believe he truly is Tron. Some feel he’s a freedom fighter, and others see him as a terrorist. Nobody knows the Renegade’s true identity.
This show’s art direction is absolutely staggering in it’s beauty, the voice acting is powerful, the stories are gripping, and the characters are so incredibly rich, you’ll find yourself caring deeply for everyone, even a lot of the enemies. There are plenty of feels to be had, and I’m beyond upset that one of the only truly incredible shows I have ever seen, is being killed.
Please, watch the first episode, and fall in love like I did.
Tron Uprising : Becks Beginning
The show is incredible, and a few very silly factors are causing it to fail. For one, Disney is relying on 2 sources to gather it’s ratings. One, is the official Disney website, which is difficult to navigate and generally drowns the show in a sea of mediocre children’s programming. Also, only US citizens are allowed to view it, other countries are blocked from viewing this. The other ratings source, is the Disney channel, airing each episode at MIDNIGHT, on a Sunday. This means people would have to pay a monthly fee for a channel loaded with 167.5 hours of children’s programming per week, in order to legitimately see the weekly 0.5 hour of Tron Uprising. This is a surefire way to completely miss your target demographic.
Another factor, is the complete lack of advertising. I’ve never met anyone else that has even heard of this show, aside from the one’s I’ve shown it to, and the ones who showed me.
Unless we somehow show our support, the show is doomed to fail, and again, like so many times before, quality programming will be tossed aside, to make room for more garbage. PLEASE give this show a fighting chance.
