New Netflix Series Is One Of The Worst In History As Per Critics

The new Netflix series is one of the worst shows as per critics and reviews. Though many people find the show good, the rating is pretty low compared to other shows on Netflix.

Netflix's new Resident Evil adaption series has not only become one of the streamer's lowest-rated shows on IMDb, but it also ranks among some of the lowest-rated shows in the history of television.

Netflix Fast Facts

Netflix has established itself as the world's intravenous line for movie entertainment. And, like every media empire, it has its own set of stories to tell. Take a look at some of the streaming giant's lesser-known, non-buffering statistics.

Early Netflix Subscribers Received Chinese Porn

Netflix was still in the business of selling and renting DVDs in 1998. Co-founder Marc Randolph decided to offer footage of President Bill Clinton's Grand Jury testimony concerning his relationship with Monica Lewinsky to try to offer consumers something unique.

However, according to the book Netflixed, the duplicating house made a mistake: of the 1000 consumers who bought Clinton's interview, a few hundred received CDs containing hardcore Chinese pornography.

Kibble Was Netflix's Initial Name

It took a long time to decide on a name for the company. Directpix.com, Replay.com, and other names were explored, as was Luna.com, Randolph's dog's name. When the company was formed, he called it Kibble.com until they could decide on a permanent name.

Netflix Will Never Show Its Rating

They will never reveal the actual data showing what people are watching on Netflix, despite the fact that there is plenty of proof on social media and the internet showing that Netflix original shows are popular.

Netflix Has Over 76,000 Micro-Genres

The most common types of content that can be found on streaming media platforms include comedies, horror, romantic comedies, and dramas. However, there are a mind-boggling number of subgenres and microgenres available on Netflix.

Netflix's Original Programming Is Viewer-Driven

Rather than creating up random content, Netflix employs the most popular genres, performers, and directors to decide how to put together its original programming to assure its popularity. This strategy has shown to be quite effective, as seen by Orange Is the New Black and Jessica Jones!

Resident Evil In A Nutshell

Resident Evil is an action horror film franchise based on Capcom's Japanese video game franchise of the same name.

In January 1998, the German studio Constantin Film acquired the rights to adapt the series. Screen Gems acquired distribution rights to Resident Evil in 2001 and engaged Paul W. S. Anderson as writer and director for Resident Evil (2002).

Anderson continued as writer and producer for:

  • Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004)
  • Resident Evil: Extinction (2007)
  • Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010),
  • Resident Evil: Retribution (2012)
  • Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2016)

The first six films follow Alice (Milla Jovovich), a figure created specifically for the series. Alice is a former security specialist and clandestine operative fighting the Umbrella Corporation, whose bioweapons have caused a zombie apocalypse.

Claire Redfield, Jill Valentine, Ada Wong, Carlos Olivera, Chris Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, Barry Burton, and adversaries Albert Wesker, the head of Umbrella Corporation, and James Marcus, Umbrella's top virologist, all present.

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, a reboot film, was released in 2021.

Despite garnering mostly unfavorable critical reviews, the Resident Evil film series has made over $1.2 billion.

The series was the highest-grossing film series based on a video game, the highest-grossing zombie film series, and the highest-grossing horror film series at various stages throughout the 2010s, though it has since been exceeded in all of these categories.

The franchise does hold the record for the most video game live-action film adaptations.

The New Netflix Show: Resident Evil

While Netflix has shortcomings, such as the uptick in membership prices and the looming worry of commercials for paying consumers, several of the platform's shows have become fan favorites... but their latest one made some viewers raise their eyebrows.

See the trailer below:

Albert Wesker (Lance Reddick) and his two children, Jade (Ella Balinska) and Billie (Adeline Rudolph), are the core of the new Resident Evil series.

In the first timeline, the synopsis reads, 14-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker are relocated to New Raccoon City.

A constructed corporate town imposed on them just as adolescence begins." But as they spend more time there, they realize that the town is more than it appears and that their father may be hiding sinister secrets. Secrets that have the potential to ruin the entire world.

Cut to the second timeline, more than a decade later: there are only about fifteen million humans left on Earth. And almost six billion monsters - T-virus-infected humans and animals. Jade, now thirty, is struggling to survive in this New World while her past secrets - about her sister, her father, and herself - continue to plague her.

The Review

One of the shows with the lowest ratings in history is the latest Resident Evil adaptation that was released on Netflix.

The Review about Resident Evil
The Review about Resident Evil

All eight Resident Evil episodes were released on Netflix Tuesday (14 July), offering viewers the opportunity to watch a few episodes, or binge the entire series before sharing their comments.

According to viewers, Netflix's new Resident Evil series falls short in every way, becoming one of IMDB's lowest-rated Netflix shows and placing among the worst-rated shows in TV history.

Unfortunately, their ideas aren't very good. On Rotten Tomatoes, the show scored a 26 percent Audience Score, while on IMDb, the series received a measly 3.4/10 based on average reviews from 4,042 IMDb users.

Earlier this year, ScreenRant published a list of the 15 worst Netflix shows according to IMDb, with Racket Boys taking the top (or bottom) slot with a rating of just 1.9/10. Racket Boys, on the other hand, has now surpassed Resident Evil, with a current score of 4.0.

In terms of TV shows in general, a list of the lowest-rated TV shows on IMDb featured shows with ratings ranging from 1.3/10 to 4.4/10. Though the episodes on the list are now a couple of years old, it's evident that Resident Evil's rating of 3.4 has made the cut.

The average rating comes after the majority of users (42.5 percent) rated the show 1/10, with 10.1 percent rating it 2/10. The 14.7 percent of users who rated it a perfect 10/10 raised its rating marginally, but it clearly wasn't enough to get it out of its present abyss.

Though the series has a more positive critics' rating of 60% on Rotten Tomatoes, it does not appear to have captivated the masses, as one Twitter review describes it as a 'dumpster fire,' while another reads:

Resident Evil on Netflix may be the most boring, pointless garbage I've seen all year, with absolutely nothing in common with its source material. Its so bad, it makes the Milla Jovovich movies look like absolute works of art in comparison.

Resident Evil may not be one of Netflix's better inventions, based on these numbers, but there is yet hope. For comparison, Keeping Up With The Kardashians has an IMDb rating of only 2.7, despite having a large fan base - make of that what you will.

However, in the interest of fairness, The Guardian's Lucy Mangan gave the show four stars and added:

You will binge-watch like you have never binge-watched before... you will enjoy yourself so freaking much.

So who knows? Perhaps you'll find that you enjoy it after all.
