A Plea for Swamp Thing

I must begin by saying I am thoroughly pleased with your original content. As a lifelong DC comics fan, each show has it’s own attributes and potential to reach beyond fandom and into new viewership. But none more so than Swamp Thing, and it is deeply unsettling that this show has been cut from the root before it can spring forth into the stratosphere. Quite a few rumors and stories have been circulating the internet regarding the specific reasoning of the show’s abrupt cancellation, and regardless of what the ultimate reason may be, we are left with two guaranteed outcomes. We , the viewer have been robbed of a property with limitless potential, and you the network have missed an opportunity to shepherd a lucrative project for years to come. Swamp Thing is boundless. It can be a horror show, a suspense drama, a tragic romance, a police procedural. It can even be an cosmic odyssey as the Alan Moore comic run proved to great effect. The source material is engaging and versatile enough to reach men and women of all ages. And yet the show has been cancelled before a second episode has even aired. As for the show itself, the men and women in front and behind the camera have put together a solid set up that deserves an opportunity. Critical reception has been positive. Fans were responding in kind. If this is an attempt to garner additional attention from passionate fans, it can just as easily drive viewers away, thinking that the project is merely an unfinished piece of work that does not even have the backing of the powers that be. If this is the methodology that you will continue to pursue, then I have no choice but to re-evaluate my membership. I may be but one, and that may make little difference to the bottom line. I can only vote with my dollar and if cancelling my membership due to such poor decision making is the only thing I can do and speaking out as to why, then so be it. I can only plea that this show is given a second glance. It’s a win win for everyone involved. Let the viewers decide.
