Selfie is the season's best canceled show you're not watching.
Wait wait wait. Let me start again. Selfie and I got off to a bit of a rough start (you may have noticed a trend), but a few episodes and some minor creative adjustments later, the show really started to live up to its potential as the modern-day My Fair Lady it aspired to be, largely thanks to the delightful rapport between Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan) and Henry Higgs (John Cho). Did I mention their friendly banter can turn into simmering tension on a dime, as we witnessed in episode 6, “Never Block Cookies”? Mmm hmm...
So of course ABC canceled it about a week later. Curses!
But don't worry, I haven't piqued your interest for nothing: Henry and Eliza's story isn't quite over. See, a #SaveSelfie campaign started up immediately, and creator Emily Kapneck's been doing everything possible to get all 13 filmed episodes out there (and, with luck, to convince someone to let her make more). And while ABC hasn't changed its mind (yet?), Hulu Plus will be “airing” the last 6 episodes of the show, starting with episode 8, which they released this past Wednesday (!!!).
What are you waiting for? Go enjoy more of Eliza and Henry helping each other become better people—and most likely falling in love while they're at it. No matter how their story does end, for me, their lovely journey's already worth it.
