Canceled Too Soon #130: Tarzan (2003)

Before Eric Kripke created the cult favorites "Supernatural" and "Timeless," he turned the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs adventure hero Tarzan into a sexy crime-fightingseries for the WB network! "Tarzan" starred Travis Fimmel ("Vikings"), Sarah Wayne Callies ("The Walking Dead"), Lucy Lawless ("Xena: Warrior Princess") and Mitch Pileggi ("The X-Files")... and it was pulled off the air after only eight measly episodes.

But was "Tarzan"... CANCELED TOO SOON? 

On this week's podcast, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold look at the history of the pulp hero, including what makes him work, what makes him problematic, and why this particular shirtless, shoeless, bodice-ripping version of the hero never found an audience, despite all the obvious talent involved.

Give it a listen!

  3. Buy youtube Views may seem like a shortcut to visibility, but it's important to approach it with caution. While a higher view count might initially boost the perceived popularity of a video, genuine engagement and organic growth are the foundations of long-term success on YouTube. Quality content, audience interaction, and authenticity are key factors in building a loyal viewer base. Artificially inflating view counts may not translate into meaningful interactions or real subscribers. It's advisable to focus on creating compelling content that resonates with your target audience and promotes authentic growth. Quality over quantity is the key to building a sustainable and successful presence on YouTube.
