We’ve come a long time since Netflix released its first original show, House of Cards, back in 2013. In the meantime, the streaming giant went on to produce not only series, but movies and documentaries as well. The Netflix Originals library is steadily growing – in fact, the platform is currently producing more content than any other single American network or cable channel.

While creating three-to-five excellent series every year can be done, coming up with dozens of compelling shows over a plethora of genres is extremely challenging. Hence, it’s no wonder that some of the most anticipated Netflix shows released in recent years have been somewhat disappointing.

Netflix is still producing high-quality content and gifting subscribers with gems like Stranger Things, Master of None, and BoJack Horseman. The Crown won over critics quickly, Orange Is the New Black is praised year after year for its powerful storytelling. Not to mention, Jessica Jones is probably the best Marvel TV adaptation we can hope for. But while still an innovative creative force, there is a growing collection of Netflix shows that sucked. 

So what’s the worst of the worst? We’ve listed some of the most poorly received Netflix series below – bashed by critics and viewers alike. Vote up your least favorites.
