Critics and audiences can agree that we live in the golden age of television. During the 2010s, Netflix set the bar pretty high with acclaimed series like stranger things and Orange is the new blackand adult animation redefined with shows like Bojack Rider and Big mouth.
Many series produced over the past decade have elevated television to a fine dining experience. However, with the huge amount of content that Netflix constantly releases, there are plenty of major hiccups and puzzles that make the viewer wonder how they were even created in the first place.
9 The haters back off! (2016-2017)
There are plenty of shows with heinous characters as protagonists. Sometimes they are the worst fictional versions of real people, as in The Sarah Silverman Programor it’s a whole group of horrible people, as in Philadelphia is always sunny. However, if the protagonist is to be unlikable, there should always be an element of relatability with them, and the show should have a strong sense of self-awareness.
The haters back off! is not a parody of a show, but Colleen, a terrible singer with delusions of grandeur, remains unsympathetic all the time, which disengages the viewer. Haters the idea of self-awareness is to be boring and expect it to be funny. This is not the case.
Emily in Paris turned out to be a love-it-or-hate-it sort of series. But beneath all the beautiful shots of Paris and the plethora of pretty outfits, Emily in Paris is a problematic circus with a protagonist who insists she’s charming but completely ignores her “ugly American” behavior in a town she superficially romanticizes.
The show’s comedy idea is to recycle dated jokes about French stereotypes that were never even funny in the first place, and the French media was even keen to openly condemn it. In fact, the show’s Golden Globe nomination was so hotly debated that it sparked an investigation that revealed to the Hollywood foreign press that she had bribed the Golden Globes to land a spot.
8 Too Hot to Handle (2020–present)
Too hot to handle tries to be a scam the island of lovebut the final product is closer to a little classier jerseyshore. For fans of the other aforementioned programs, this competitive dating reality show, which forces a group of horny millennials to abstain from sex all the time (including kissing and self-gratification), might just be the next best thing. from sliced bread.
For the most part, it’s just another tasteless reality show, a cheap imitation of dozens of similar programs. Unfortunately, Too hot to handle can’t even be included in the so-bad-it-good categories of trashy reality TV.
7 Sexy Beasts (2021–present)
that the premise of sexy beasts is good is subjective. However, it cannot be said that it is not at least interesting. In this strange combination of Love is blind and Confrontationthe show’s intent was for its contestants to engage with another contestant’s personality by placing them in heavy prosthetics, rather than basing their connection on superficial attraction.
It quickly backfires when the public also meets these people and understands why most of these contestants are single in the first place: their personalities.
6 Hoops (2020)
It’s common knowledge in the comedy world that constant profanity – as in, almost every other word is unnecessary swearing – is a sign of insecurity in its material. It’s a defense mechanism born out of the idea that being more shocking will distract from bad writing.
This seems to have been the MO for hoops, which follows an angry and rude basketball coach charged with the extremely unique responsibility of turning a team of losers into winners. In a desperate attempt to subvert its weak premise, hoops relies almost entirely on profanity and shock humor that has the same energy as a 13-year-old who has just learned to swear.
5 Super Drag (2018)
Super streaks is particularly disappointing because of the quality of its premise: three queer co-workers lead double lives as a team of superhero drag queens. Basically, it’s The Powerpuff Girls with drag queens, which sounds so fun! It could have been another great addition to Netflix’s growing roster of adult animated programming, but it failed to deliver on many levels.
The animation, bright and colorful as it should be, is also poorly designed, extremely fast and hard on the eyes. Admittedly, there are only five episodes of Super streaksbut that’s no excuse for its lack of character development or its scathing humor that relies on stereotypes and unnecessarily shocking acts.
4 Richie Rich (2015)
The world is a very different place from the original Richie Rich premiered in 1994. Tastes and demands change over time, and given the current situation, a sitcom about a spoiled rich white boy doesn’t work the way it used to. (Actually, it never really did.)
However, Netflix seemed to believe differently in 2015. In another failed attempt to capitalize on audience nostalgia, this TV adaptation of Richie Rich is just another soulless rehash of already soulless material. Nobody asked for that.
3 Chasing Cameron (2016)
In another desperate attempt by Netflix to connect with today’s youth, Chasing Cameron is why older generations hate younger ones. This show is not a reflection on certain age groups as a whole and should not be treated as such; However, Chasing Cameron doesn’t exactly put on the best foot of the generation.
Taken back to when Viner still reigned supreme (right before the Tik Tok era), this series centers on Cameron Dallas, a Viner and social media influencer who, along with others exactly like him, takes himself extremely seriously. Now, plenty of 20-somethings have the same complex but aren’t granted an entire series on Netflix where they can indulge in their typically terrible behavior.
2 True Rob (2015-2017)
The amount of Rob Schneider content available on Netflix – from True Rob to his stand-up special – is somewhat confusing. Schneider has almost become a meme in today’s society; in part because of a timeless South Park joke, and partly because his CV is as complete as it is laughable.
True Rob tries to capitalize on the D-lister’s ubiquity with a self-aware simulated reality show starring Schneider as himself, but its material is dated, as are the stand-up bits sprinkled throughout. ‘episode. Even Schneider fans found the actor’s performance in True Rob be even squeakier than usual.
1 Hype House (2022–present)
From the beginning of 2022, hype house is the lowest-rated Netflix series to date, and not just by critics. Once again a camera crew has been sent in to film a group of social media famous teens that no one has heard of, and other than the general lack of anything interesting, hype house is why Gen Z is hated.
Even the show’s target demographic widely condemned it as another example of insufferable behavior by budding young celebrities. The number of shows Netflix has canceled to allow hype house to produce is, objectively, really confusing.
