It’s been a while since I did a Dish of the Week.
Now seems a good time as I have an unusually free afternoon waiting for the dinner to cook and I feel the need to blog.
This Dish of the Week is being shared as I couldn’t make up my mind and after the news I got on Thursday, this Dish of the Week seemed appropriate.
OK, so Netflix have only gone and cancelled one of the most original and diverse shows on TV and they announced it on the first day of Pride month.
You will have seen me blog a few times in recent months about a show called Sense8.
What an amazing show.
Absolutely impossible to explain to anyone, but amazing. The last season ended on a cliffhanger, and now they’ve cancelled it.
I could cry.
I will never know if they save Wolfgang and he will never get to meet Kala in Paris.
We will never get to see Nomi (a trans woman) marry Amanita, her black lesbian lover!
How’s that for groundbreaking diversity.
We will never see Lito become a big hollywood star and be accepted and be able to live a normal life with his boyfriend Hernando.
We will never know if Will and Riley defeat Whispers.
We will never see Capheus get elected and make a difference.
We will never see Sun cleared and get her revenge on her Brother and live a life with her detective Mun.
So many unanswered questions.
My heart breaks.
I’ve had fantastic shows cancelled abruptly on me in the past but this one is really hitting hard!!
I just cannot understand it.
It’s a popular show. You only have to google it to find that out.
The Twitter boards have gone ballistic since the cancellation news and an online petition to save the show has already reached nearly 500,000 signatures.
The diversity alone is something to love and cherish and nurture and Netflix has just pissed all over it.
It reminds me of the ‘Nuts’ campaign when Jericho got cancelled!!
We can only hope that it has the same effect and we get at least one more season to give us closure. We’ve invested time in all of these characters and we’ve fallen in love with them. We want to know what happens to them. Especially Wolfgang who was last seen strapped to a table being tortured for information!!!
Anyway, this brings me nicely to this Dish of the Week post.
Two of my favourite characters from this series are Wolfgang and Lito played by Max Riemelt and Miguel Silvestre.
Max Riemelt, who plays Wolfgang, was born in 1984 in Berlin, Germany and he has that subtle German accent that is very reminicent of Hardy Kruger!! He’s lovely.
Miguel Silvestre, who plays Lito Rodrigues, was born in 1982 in Valencia, Spain and he has a beautiful smile and an incredible bod!
The fact he was one of the gay leads in Sense8 and made an amazingly sexy couple with his partner Hernando just endeared him to me from the moment I saw him.
I’ll be honest, I’ve seen nothing else with either of them in it.
It is something I aim to rectify. So watch this space, I may gush a little more about one or even both of them.
Why wouldn’t I? They are both gorgeous!!
