Netflix Most Cringe TV Shows of May 2021

Why Netflix Why?

Netflix Who killed Sara

Short Summary:

Hell-bent on exacting revenge and proving he was framed for his sister’s murder, Álex sets out to unearth much more than the crime’s real culprit.

Creator: José Ignacio Valenzuela

Stars: Manolo Cardona, Ginés García Millán, Carolina Miranda

Release Date: 19 May 2021

OMG… It’s soooo bad on every single level that it almost reaches a point of twisted pleasure…

I think I haven’t seen so much absurdity, incoherence, and plain dullness since some afternoon telenovelas from the ’80s. And not all of them stooped to that level. The writing, the acting, the editing… I don’t know whether I should laugh or cry and pray for a quick, soothing death…

Literally, nothing makes sense, you can’t believe the first thing about the so-called “plot”. Far-fetched doesn’t start to cover it, it’s a sh..show if I ever saw one.

Who green-lit that?

Special

Short Summary:

A young gay man with cerebral palsy branches out from his insular existence in hopes of finally going after the life he wants.

Creator: Ryan O’Connell

Stars: Ryan O’Connell, Jessica Hecht, Punam Patel

Release Date: 19 May 2021

The main character is hateable. He’s deceptive, rude, selfish, snide, and more, to good people and bad alike. He’s pretty sad because he has no self-esteem at all due to his sickly co-dependant relationship with his mother.

Every time Ryan feels uncomfortable or doesn’t like what’s happening or isn’t getting what he wants he walks out on people.

He is very assumptive and puts expectations on everything and everyone. Just acts like a fool and I feel like the show makes people with physical and mental health problems look so undesirable when there is already a stigma in real life.

I watch Netflix TV be entertained and this show did none of that. What it did do was just make me grossed out to see all these toxic relationships portrayed in the most boring fashion possible. I’m not sure what the point of any of it is.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous

Short Summary:

Six teens attending an adventure camp on the opposite side of Isla Nublar must band together to survive when dinosaurs wreak havoc on the island.

Creator: Ryan O’Connell

Stars: Ryan O’Connell, Jessica Hecht, Punam Patel

Release Date: 21 May 2021

This series completely has no respect for the viewer’s intelligence.

Every conflict is manufactured and done solely to bring about a certain sequence of events.

Every interaction, with the exception of 1-2 scenes between Darius and his father,

Are completely nonsensical.

And don’t give me that excuse of ‘well the whole premise is nonsensical, just go for the ride’ –

No. We have collectively lowered our standards for entertainment, and the praise this series is getting is a sign of the end times,

Because by saying this is acceptable, the creators will feel enabled to keep zero quality standards for what they create.

If you like this series, you are either a very small child, or you have no brain.

What’s upsetting is that it didn’t used to be this way – you used to have children’s entertainment that still had a sense for what would happen naturally,

What a character would say and do naturally –

This entire series and to be honest, every film or piece of media after the first is completely contrived crap that dilutes what made the original film a true masterpiece.

Please don’t deaden your brain cells with this mindless pile of stupidity.

Netflix Lucifer: Season 5 – Part 2

Short Summary:

Lucifer Morningstar has decided he’s had enough of being the dutiful servant in Hell and decides to spend some time on Earth to better understand humanity. He settles in Los Angeles – the City of Angels.

Creator: Ryan O’Connell

Stars: Ryan O’Connell, Jessica Hecht, Punam Patel

Release Date: 21 May to 28 May 2021

In the maze of rubbish American Netflix TV that we poor Brits have to navigate in order to find something worth watching, this stands out…..for the appalling acting, paint-by-numbers script, as well as ridiculous storylines.

As in most American Netflix TV programs, the cast is all improbably good-looking, overly made-up, and over-styled, but hey, we’d expect nothing less, right? God forbid they’d employ any ‘normal’ looking actors who could actually act!

Tom Ellis, bless his cotton socks, tries his best. His accent veers between ‘cockney cor blimey guvnor to posh twit to camp as Graham Norton and he manages to deliver his lines without looking too embarrassed, but I bet he wishes he was still Miranda’s love interest.

Maybe the writers were aiming for a pastiche of the all too many other shockingly bad programs that are relentlessly churned out and could’ve even been funny but the director wasn’t in the joke?

Tom, come, home lad, even a stint on EastEnders would test your acting talent better than this pile of hot, stinking tripe!
