12 Netflix original TV shows that critics hate, but normal people love

Business Insider Entertainment 2 months ago

While Netflix has won over critics with many of its original series, the company has had its share of critical flops, too.

But critical reception can often mean next to nothing to everyday viewers, who will flock to shows that critics have condemned. One such show is "Insatiable," which is Netflix's worst-reviewed series but is returning on Friday for its second season.

Critics have called the show "cynical" and "an absolute mess," and it has a 13% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes. But audiences seem to love it, as it has an 84% audience score on the site.

We turned to the reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes to find shows that had significant discrepancies between their "critic" and "audience" scores. We ranked the shows by their audience scores, and we used the larger discrepancies to break any ties.

Here are 12 Netflix original shows that critics really hated, but audiences loved:

10. "Bloodline"

9. "Girlboss"

8. "Marvel's The Punisher" — 63%

7. "Disjointed"

6. "Insatiable"

6. "Flaked"

5. "Friends From College"

4. "Damnation" — 58%

2. "Turn Up Charlie"
