What do you think? Do you like The Bastard Executioner TV show? Do you think that it should be renewed for a second season?
I totally agree Ginger Benner I loved this show too & was really looking forward to s2. I hate when they cancel shows just as you’re getting into them. They’re the barstard executioners.
I absolutely loved this show!!! Why would you take this show off after just one season, REALLY!!!!! Please bring this show back……I really looked forward to seeing it every week. As usual all the good shows are canceled and for what another reality show!!!!
I loved this show. I just read that it was cancelled. What a pity. I was looking forward to more………as in season 2. Crap. Not good.
I loved this series! I am very disappointed we will not see how the story ends. I hate starting a series, get hooked and the it’s canceled. No wonder tv is dying.
I hope they reconsider the decision to cancel. I was already hooked after just one season.
I loved it. So sad to see it cancelled. Hoping the network will rethink that decision.
