    13 Reasons Why You Should Watch "Half Bad" And Then Maybe Netflix Won't Cancel It

    Come on, Netflix – it wasn't half bad!

    News broke recently that Netflix has cancelled Half Bad, AKA The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself.

    Now, I have to be honest, I only recently became obsessed with this show. While the initial few episodes are interesting, I think it ~really~ gets going in the middle of the series when a certain Frenchman becomes involved!

    Here are just a few reasons why I think y'all should add it to your watchlist, and hopefully make Netflix change its mind ;)

    1. It has a relatively unknown cast, but they're all really strong!

    2. It's full of fantasy, but it's also very funny and grounded.

    3. It's based on a fabulous young adult novel series.

    4. It has a story that really builds and sucks you in.

    5. A lot of the characters are incredibly compelling.

    6. It feels like a really interesting mesh of a lot of other shows.

    7. It's suuuuuper queer!

    8. It's critically acclaimed!

    9. It has a killer soundtrack scored by Let's Eat Grandma.

    10. It was shot on location in London, and it feels like a really British series.

    11. But a lot of it is in French too, so if you're looking to improve, give it a watch.

    I know I got a lot out of it, and that's not just because most of the French was coming from a sexy man!

    12. The series was created and written by Joe Barton, who has also written for Humans, Giri/Haji, and The Lazarus Project.

    13. And THE Andy Serkis executive produced the series through his company Imaginarium Productions.
