MiniMeme Podcast #1: why does Netflix kill its good shows?

Welcome to MiniMeme, the podcast brought to you by Burn Media’s junior staff as they tackle the topics that tickle their fancy.

This week Julia Breakey and Matthew Alexander sit down to discuss this season’s TV renewals and cancellations.

Netflix has cancelled Sense8, but why has Supernatural lasted more than ten seasons?

Julia opens the floor to rant about the loss of Sense8 (thanks Netflix) despite the renewal of shows that have no more story to tell like 13 Reasons Why.

We then examine why solid shows may end and others like Supernatural have managed 13-season runs. Will the Winchesters ever be set free?

Finally, we find ourselves meandering through Charmed nostalgia, Percy Jackson disappointment, dream sequence frustration and a love for television.
