Netflix has been known to make top-notch original series, with critical praise and award recognition to prove it.
The streaming service nabbed 91 Emmy nominations in 2017, with Stranger Things, House of Cards, and The Crown receiving the bulk of the nominations. These nods are just further proof that these beloved shows are as good as fans believe them to be.
Unfortunately, we've all learned lately that Netflix is not as untouchable as many people thought. After a couple of big cancellations, the service has released a couple of critical bombs online, and it had people wondering what other original series weren't very well-received.
When looking at the aggregate scores on Rotten Tomatoes, there are 11 Netflix shows that have been panned by many of the critics. If you're looking to the reviews to tell you which series to stay away from, these are the titles to remove from your watchlist.
On Rotten Tomatoes, every movie or TV show gets a percentage score based on the number of good reviews versus bad ones. Anything that gets a score less than 60% is considered "Rotten" instead of "Fresh".
Three of these Netflix series have scores from 40-53 percent meaning there's likely still some redemptive qualities among them.
