You can’t go past a good Netflix original series.
What you can go past is a, erm, pretty damn average one.
But it also delivered a few underwhelming series and a few, well, shockers.

To help you avoid a crappy binge session this Christmas, we’ve rounded up the six worst Netflix original series according to the critics:
Critic score: 31%
Audience score: 72%
Girlboss had such promise but in the end it was a lil’ bit underwhelming.
The series followed the story of Sophia Marlowe as she somehow stumbles into creating one of the most successful online businesses of the noughties. The series is loosely based on the true story of Nasty Gal founder, Sophia Amoruso.
The thing is though, Marlowe’s character is kind of annoying and her quick rise to success is a little unbelievable.
Watch it if: You’re into vintage clothing, you have a spare eight hours, and you don’t want to think too hard.
Don’t watch it if: You’ve got a bunch of other shows to catch up on.
5. Neo Yokio
Critic score: 30%
Audience score: 56%
Neo Yokio is an American-Japanese co-produced animated television series created by Ezra Koenig of American rock band Vampire Weekend. According to people who are into anime, it fell a bit flat and felt a bit soulless.
Watch it if: You’re into that kind of thing.
Don’t watch it if: You’re not an anime fan or you’re new to anime.
