10 Emily in Paris (since 2020) is problematic

IMDb Score: 6.9/10

Emily in Paris has proven to be a love-it-or-hate-it series. Yet among all the beautiful shots of Paris and the abundance of cute outfits, Emily in Paris is a problematic circus. The eponymous protagonist insists she’s charming but totally unaware of her “ugly American” demeanor in a city she superficially romanticizes.

The show’s comedy idea is to recycle outdated jokes about French stereotypes that weren’t funny at all. The French media even openly condemned it. In fact, the show’s Golden Globe nomination was so hotly debated that it sparked an investigation that eventually exposed the Hollywood Foreign Press for bribing the Golden Globes to snag a spot.

9 Real Rob (2015–2017) was unoriginal

IMDb Score: 6.3/10

The amount of Rob Schneider content available on Netflix – by Real Rob to his standup special – is a bit puzzling. Schneider has almost become a meme in today’s society, partly because of its timelessness South Park Joke, and partly because his resume is as voluminous as it is ridiculous.

Real Rob seeks to capitalize on the D-lister’s ubiquity with a self-aware pseudo-reality show starring Schneider as himself. However, the footage is dated, as are the standup pieces peppered throughout the show. Even Schneider fans loved the actor’s performance in Real Rob scratch more than usual.

8th Hoops (2020) leaned too heavily on his potty mouth

IMDb Score: 6/10

It’s well known in the comedy world that constant profanity is a sign of insecurity in one’s material, especially when almost every other word is a meaningless swear word. It’s a defense mechanism born out of the belief that shock tactics distract viewers from bad writing.

Unfortunately this was the MO for tires, which follows a hot-headed, brash high school basketball coach who bears the (extremely unique) responsibility of turning a team from losers into winners. In a failed attempt to detract from its weak premise, tires Employing almost entirely profanity and shocking humor, it offers the same energy as a 13-year-old who has just learned to swear.

7 Haters retreat! (2016-2017) Depicted characters too unlikely to fathom

IMDb Score: 5.9/10

There are many shows with obnoxious characters as protagonists. Sometimes they are fictional versions of real people, as in The Sarah Silverman Programor they are a whole group of people, as in It’s always sunny in Philadelphia. Unlikable protagonists still need an element of relationship skills, however, and the show needs a strong sense of self-awareness to make them believable.

Haters retreat! is not a travesty of a show. However, the protagonist, Colleen, is a terrible megalomaniac singer and remains unsympathetic throughout the series. Haters retreat! Idea of ​​self-knowledge is the belief that annoying equals funny, which is not the case.

6 Super Drags (2018) failed to capitalize on its grand premise

IMDb Score: 5.4/10

Super drags is disappointing mostly because of its great premise. Three gay colleagues lead double lives as superhero drag queens. It basically is The Powerpuff Girls with drag queens, that sounds super fun. Unfortunately, it could have been another great addition to Netflix’s growing list of adult animated programs; however, it could not be delivered on several levels.

The animation, which is bright and colorful (as it should be), is poorly designed, extremely fast-paced, and hard on the eyes. Admittedly, there are only five episodes of Super dragsbut that’s no excuse for its lack of character development or its cracking humor grounded in stereotypes and mindlessly shocking acts.

5 Too Hot To Handle (since 2020) is too trashy for trash TV

IMDb Score: 4.7/10

Too hot to touch is a rip off attempt island of lovebut the end product looks a bit more classy Jersey Shore. For fans of the other programs mentioned above, Too hot to touch is a competitive dating reality show that forces a group of horny millennials to abstain from sex (kissing and masturbation included), so it might well be worth a watch.

For most, however, it’s just another boring reality show and a cheap imitation of dozens of similar programs. Unfortunately, Too hot to touch can’t even be included in the so-bad-it-good categories of trashy reality TV.

4 Sexy Beasts (since 2021) is not sexy at all

IMDb Score: 4.6/10

Whether the premise for Sexy beasts good or scary is subjective. However, one cannot say that it is not interesting. In a strange combination of love is blind and face off, the show encourages its contestants to engage with each other on a personal level, rather than basing their connection on superficial attraction. How do you do that? By being placed in heavy prosthetics modeled after a species of animal. Unfortunately, the premise backfires when viewers meet the people behind the fur and realize why most of them are single in the first place: their personalities.

3 Chasing Cameron (2016) encapsulates everything that’s wrong with chasing fame

IMDb Score: 3.6/10

In Netflix’s endless attempts to connect with current youth culture, hunt cameron proves why older generations have trouble liking younger ones. The show is not and should not be treated as a reflection on specific age groups as a whole; however, hunt cameron doesn’t put the best foot forward in the generation.

Set in the old days when Vine was at the top (just before the Tik-Tok era), this series revolves around Cameron Dallas, a Viner and social media influencer who, along with others, is very much like him takes seriously. Many 20-year-olds have the same complex but don’t get an entire series on Netflix, allowing them to indulge in their generally horrible behavior.

2 Richie Rich (2015) doesn’t work in a woke world

IMDb Score: 3.1/10

Since the original richie rich First performed in 1994, the world and its social environment have changed dramatically. Tastes and demands change with the times, and given the current state of the world, a sitcom about a rich and spoiled white boy doesn’t resonate as it once did. (Actually, it never really did).

However, in 2015, Netflix seemed to have a different opinion. In another failed attempt to capitalize on the public’s nostalgia, this TV adaptation of richie rich is another soulless infusion of already soulless material. Nobody asked for it, hence the bad rating.

1 Hype House (since 2022) replaced more worthy Netflix shows

IMDb Score: 2.1/10

From early 2022, hype house is the lowest-rated Netflix series to date, and it’s not just because of the critics. Once again, a camera crew sets out to film a group of ‘famous’ teenagers on social media that nobody really knows, and apart from nothing interesting happening in general, hype house is why Gen Z is a dirty word.

Even the show’s target demographic was widely condemned, as it was yet another example of allowing for the intolerable behavior of young, smug, wannabe celebrities. The number of great shows Netflix canceled to allow hype house Having priority is objectively confusing.
