Perhaps it’s a sign of the times, but TRON just isn’t as cool as it used to be. Or maybe it wasn’t ever. To wit, the ratings for the animated series prequel/sequel TRON: Uprising have kind of tanked sine the show premiered, and if there’s any hope at all for a season two, then it lies with you, the viewer, says producer Edward Kitsis.
Let’s go to the begging, already in progress:
“I don’t know what the future [of Tron: Uprising] is now. I know at the present, I can say we need more viewers. I’m so proud of that show and I love that show and anyone who watches it loves that show. The problem is, not enough people are watching it. And so I would love to sound the alarm, because I love the characters and the world and it’s really… It’s a shame that more people aren’t watching it, because I think they’re missing out.
At this point, I don’t believe its fate has been decided. So if people keep watching, then there’s still a chance. Please watch. Tell your friends!”
TRON: Uprising follows a young(?) program voiced by Elijah Wood who’s being trained by TRON to lead a rebellion. The story takes place between the original TRON and TRON Legacy. I haven’t seen the show, but even if it sucks only half as hard as TRON Legacy, that’s still twice as much suckage as I’m willing to tolerate.
How about you, Bastards. Are you going to let Kitsis’ begging persuade you to watch the show?
