TV shows with terrible Rotten Tomatoes scores you should watch anyway
To say television has come a long way over the last decade would be an understatement. With streaming services getting into original scripted content, there are more viewing options than ever; according to a report published by Variety in August of 2017, more than 340 scripted series aired during the first seven months of the year—compared to 325 over the same period in 2016.
Naturally, not every show can be a critical winner. Every network wants to find the next Game of Thrones or Handmaid's Tale, but taste is subjective, and trends are constantly shifting. With so many options at the viewer's disposal, it's easy to write off many of them—especially if they have low Rotten Tomatoes scores.
Sure, poorly rated shows often deserve their bad rap. But negative reviews don't necessarily mean a show is all bad. Every dark cloud has a silver lining—let's find that silver lining in some of Rotten Tomatoes' lowest-rated TV series, shall we?
